MelbushO Back for 2018 – Cardinia Reservoir, April 8

With temperatures reaching a sizzling 30 degrees, fitness was the key to success at Cardinia Reservoir, as all courses tackled a considerable number of contours.  It also paid to avoid the green, and to look for tracks and clearings, to speed up progress; the red line was not always the fastest option.  Great to see so many newcomers enjoying the experience of navigating with a map to find controls.

Our next MelbushO is on Sunday April 29, at Hawkstowe Park, which is the western side of Plenty Gorge Park.

Directions: enter Plenty Gorge Park from Gordons Road; follow orienteering signs to parking. Melway 183 H8. Toilets available.  More Information

Choose any of the four courses – Long Hard, Short Hard, Moderate or Easy; and select your own start time between 10am and 11.30am.  No need to pre-register, just turn up and pay at Registration when you arrive.  We use Sportident electronic timing so if you own an SI stick bring it along; otherwise we’ll loan you one (included in your entry fee).

Entry is just $10 for adults and $5 for anyone under 21, and includes a colour map, loan of an SI stick or compass if required, coaching for newcomers, and refreshments.
