MelbushO and VicBushO in July

Orienteering at Plenty South – Sunday July 23

Plenty South – a fantastic sunny day, with plenty of kangaroos spotted.  Andras set excellent courses which challenged us physically, gave us lots of route choice, and encouraged the less experienced navigators to try some cross country legs, and build their skills.

Orienteering at the You Yangs – Sunday 30 July

Definitely a venue where it is wise to think about using the tracks and road in preference to the red line, and one where it paid to check your control numbers – there were different final controls for different courses, and some got caught out.  The long climb through the first few controls was rewarded by magnificent views, and superb granite.  Quite a few had a run first, before taking to their bikes.
