Important Notice re Parking for Tuesday 31 May, Ascot Vale

Wednesday, 25 May 2016

Tuesday 31 May, Ascot Vale event – change to parking arrangements

The Farnham St Community Centre has requested that all orienteers park in Pin Oak Crescent on the railway line side of the street, which is only a short walk from the start location, which remains the same as advertised.

Due to unrest with local residents please do not park in the residential streets around the community centre as this may compromise our ability to use this start location in the future.

Tuesday Western Series

About this series:

Welcome to the Tuesday Western Series - Park and Street orienteering in Melbourne's west.

Where: Western suburbs of Melbourne

When: 7:00pm Tuesdays.

Cost:  $4 per event for adults, $2 for juniors/students

The Western Series offers a diverse and arguably unique range of venues, from the elegance of Albert Park, Essendon and Williamstown right through to the vibrant newer suburbs in the outer west.It embraces the charming inner suburbs such as the old towns of Newport and Footscray. Many events border the water's edge, the Maribyrnong and Yarra River, and the Bay at Port Melbourne.

Park and Street Orienteering offers an excellent opportunity for discovering all of these places.

Many of the river valleys can be surprisingly steep and might require more thoughtful route choices. But generally, Melbourne's West embraces comparatively flat terrain.

Most of the inner suburb maps include a suburban train line to be negotiated, whether it be boom gates, road bridge, pedestrian bridge or subway. It all adds to the satisfying challenge of the route choices.

All Park and Street Orienteering events welcome people of all abilities and ages. There are a range of courses that accommodate both the elite sports person right through to people who are just looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Family and friends can participate in groups or individually.

The Western Series operates in twilight during the Daylight Saving months and also operates an extremely popular Autumn night series.

You will always find friendly and helpful people to assist you have an enjoyable experience. Your feedback is always welcome.

If you have any questions, please Email or telephone Ken on 93375417 or John and Jenny Sheahan on 9397 3493.
