Summer Series Results from Hamlins Hill

Results from courses:   One   Two   Three   Four   Contours

Great to see all the new faces there tonight and old friends from last year. We have thought that this map was one that did not attract many orienteers but we were wrong. It was fantastic to see a really good turnout. And the weather behaved for us. Thank goodness (we must have at last managed to behave ourselves all week!!). It’ll get better yet, that was a very cold wind, but the sun was shining for most of the time. If you felt it was a bit wet underfoot in parts you should have been there last week. When we checked control sites on Thursday it was oozing!

Wasn’t it good to get up on the Hill and see the commuters rushing, sometimes slowly, home while we have all the space in the world. A good sunset tonight too and a nice place to view it from.

It was with great pleasure that we were able to welcome a major sponsor of orienteering, GREENCOAST, a retailer of outdoor equipment along tonight. Greencoast are sponsoring the Easter-ANZAC Orienteering Carnival next year. (If you want to know more about the Carnival or Greencoast please ask, we’ll be very happy to tell you all about it.) You can find out about Greencoast at www.greencoast.co.nz and the Carnival at auckoc.tripod.com/ea2003.

Those of you with the very long times who were puzzled by this – the finish clock got advanced by one hour for a little while – you might have been 60 mins faster!!!!

Next week we are on the Mt Eden map, starting at Melville Park, just by the Auckland Training College. Courses one and two will go across to the mountain while the other two courses will challenge with interesting routes through the buildings of the College and nearby schools. We have added in Windmill Park so there will be a new bit for some.

This weekend we have orienteering on both Saturday and Sunday at Tawharanui, the ARC park near Omaha (turn right off State Highway 1 at Warkworth). On Saturday there is a self-start self finish (just like the Summer Series) event while on the Sunday we have the Auckland Orienteering Relay championships. Everyone is welcome to both days. Non Club members will be able to have a run on one of the relay courses on Sunday – so don’t let the fact that the event has a grand sounding name put you off – come along and do a course. The courses cover a range of difficulties – just like at the summer series. There is camping on the Saturday night too if you want to stay over. There will be quite a few of us who will be doing so. Please give us (Joanna or Alistair 5755695 or 3737599x6360) a call if you want to camp the night as the ranger needs to know the numbers).

If anyone is thinking about joining the Auckland Orienteering Club, now is a good time to do so. Our AGM is next month and the annual subscription is likely to increase. If you join now you pay the 2001/2002 subscription fee and are a member from now to the beginning of 2004. Membership forms are available at all Summer Series events and on the website (auckoc.tripod.com). It is only $60 for an adult or $85 for a family ($40 for a student or junior - under 21 years).

STOP PRESS – While we write this our new Sport Ident electronic punching system for use at major events in the future, should be taxiing to a stop on Auckland airport on route from Sweden to us. There is great excitement around Auckland orienteering at this new step forward – you will hear more about it in the coming months!
