Orienteering at Pilchers Bridge South

For orienteers in the regional area, Bendigo put on another great event on Saturday at Pilchers Bridge South with 53 participants turning out to try Peter Searle’s courses. The terrain here is subtle gully spur and staying in contact with the map and good compass work gets rewarded. Conversely it is very easy to lose a lot of time if map contact is lost. Peter made good use of the terrain subtleties, especially for the longer courses, and for those of us unable to go bush orienteering at the moment, it is interesting to view the routes taken on Livelox.
One leg to look at is Course 1 control 9-10 (C2’s 7-8) versus C3 control 6-7 where the controls are placed in adjacent gullies, one a deep prominent gully and the other a shallow gully. Take a look at the maps first, and then go to Livelox to view the routes taken.

To view each course in more detail, just click on each image.
