MelBushO Debuts at Police Paddocks; Maps Available for Anytime Use

Police Paddocks Reserve was used for a MelBushO event for the first time last Sunday.  Despite the rain, competitors enjoyed a variety of terrain, from a complex network of tiny tracks, to open grassed slopes and lightly timbered spur/gully, and some more vegetated patches.  Tracks were generally faster than bush, but we were all in need of off-track practice after a year’s break!  Thanks to course planner Carl Stemp, and Dandenong Ranges Orienteering Club, who introduced many newcomers to the joys of bush orienteering.

If you missed out, we have good news!  The courses have all been set up in MapRun, for you to try any time.  You can download and print your own map, or pick one up at a Park Street event, or at Maroondah Reservoir next Sunday.  Simply take your phone or watch with MapRun loaded, head to the start as shown on the map, and look for one of the five courses in “Events Near Me”.  You can also try the “All Controls” map as a Score course.
