Xmas event. Diamond Harbour. This is a 60 minute score/rogaine event. There are a mix of control sites ranging from easy to hard navigation difficulty providing something to suit everyone including those who are new to the sport and would like to give it a go. All welcome! Event suitable for the whole family. Have fun and enjoy this casual event.
The terrain is a mixture of mature pine forest, park areas, historic buildings and amenity plantings. Courses also include some intricate vegetation and rock features.
End-of -year prizegiving will be around 1pm, we will be presenting the 2022 trophies for the OY series, most improved orienteers and volunteer awards. Hopefully there will be a sausage sizzle as a fundraiser for Juniors travelling to orienteering events.
