Victoria Park School Holidays Event

Thanks to everyone for coming along for a lovely sunny afternoon of orienteering at Victoria Park. There were around 200 people in 100 teams taking part including many new family groups. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. There were some who didn’t realise that in this form of orienteering you need to get all the controls in the order shown on the map. In the results we haven’t penalised for this,or for missing only one or two controls out. However in a “real” event I’m afraid this would mean you would be unranked in the results. Do come along again!

Thanks very much to Scott Smith, Felix Harrison, Kath Adams, and George York and Melissa Zinzan and families for their help in putting out controls and helping with the long registration queue!

The results are here and the split times can be seen here.
