Westerfolds Park MelbushO Results, Splits and Photos

Westerfolds Park proved a popular venue once again, with a big crowd turning out for MelBushO no 5. The weather stayed dry, but there were enough puddles to satisfy everyone who wanted to have a splash!

Courses were set by Gavin and Maya Bennette, who took us to all sorts of places within the park. They chose a variety of features, which was great for less experienced orienteers learning the ropes; and even seasoned orienteers found themselves in new spots.  We navigated from the absolute edge of the river, all the way to the top of the hill (which meant a wonderful downhill finish!)

Our next MelBushO is at the You Yangs Park on Sunday June 20. This event will be a great way to improve your bush orienteering skills, and enjoy an activity for the whole family, all within Melbourne’s northeast suburbs. You’ll be able to choose any of the five courses offered, and start any time between 10am and 11.30am. The entry fee is $12 for adults and $6 for juniors, or $30 for families (2 adults and 1 or more juniors who enter at the same time).

Sportident timing will be used, with controls in “Air” mode, for contactless punching (non “Air” SI sticks work just fine too). We’ll have coaches on hand to assist newcomers. Don’t have a compass or Sportident stick? No problem – just borrow one from Registration; included in your entry fee. Online entry will open in early June.

In order to make things as fast and easy as possible on the day, guarantee you get a map for your preferred course, and save you from having to queue up, we strongly prefer that you enter online. Entries close on the Thursday evening prior to each event. With your entry and payment taken care of, when you arrive you simply need to check in via QR code (please bring a phone with camera or QR code scanning app), collect a map from Registration, head to the Start, and enjoy your course!  If you do opt to enter on the day, we prefer you pay by card, but cash is also OK.
