World Orienteering Day Melbourne Style

Thursday, 25 May 2017

World Orienteering Day in Melbourne had it all - a jetsetting president, a social media star, a crowd of adoring fans, and some fake news!  The retro grunge underground car park provided the perfect setting for a celebrity event like no other.  

As expected, WODY was the centre of attention.  He and Blair spent the day travelling across the eastern seaboard, meeting and greeting fans, and taking part in WOD events in four states.  Blair managed to run at Mullauna, while WODY took the opportunity to recover from jet lag, sample some JWOC jam, assist with the timekeeping, and claim the event director's chair (literally).  Afterwards WODY enjoyed wining and dining with Blair's entourage. 

As for the 106 participants (plus one stuffed rabbit) - they were relieved to hear that the pre-released map turned out to be fake news.  The real map was handed out at 7pm, and competitors took to the streets as they did their bit to break the WOD record.  There was a quiz to take home - answers will be posted here next week.

Happy WOD!
