VicBushO at Macedon, Sunday April 9

Monday, 3 April 2017

Despite the heavy downpours and forecasts of extreme weather, we had a great turnout of eager mudlarks.  Central Highlands Orienteering Club (CHOC) produced a well organised event, with excellent courses set by Mark Hennessy in classic bush orienteering style.  The Hard courses each had a challenging long leg which tested stamina and route choice.  Other legs also had plenty of options, with tracks providing less direct but easier routes, vs cross country for those who prefer the red line, with some thicker vegetation and scrambling through the creek.

The next MelbushO is on Sunday May 7 at the always popular Yellow Gum Park, which is part of Plenty Gorge Parklands.  Turn off Yan Yean Road onto Memorial Drive, then turn south onto Goldsworthy Lane and follow orienteering signs to the picnic area.  The park has a bit of everything - lovely forest, some detailed erosion features, cliffs and rocks, big open hills, tracks, and great river views. There are toilets and picnic tables so bring lunch and enjoy a day out.

Choose any of the four courses - Long Hard, Short Hard, Moderate, or Easy.  Start any time from 10am-12 noon.  Sportident electronic timing will be used, along with touch screen registration.  Your entry fee of $10 for adults and $5 for juniors (under 21) includes colour map, coaching, equipment hire, and refreshments.  There is no pre-entry required, just come along and pay on the day.
