Summer Series Results from One Tree Hill
March 13, 2003

Results from courses: One   Two   Three   Four

Well, we made it. The Summer Series 2002-2003 wound to an end tonight, with a great climax of a lovely evening, a great crowd and the favourite Auckland park map. It was really great to see people running all over the park and then being able to come back and chat in the fine warm evening. Do any of you remember the same evening last year ?– it was somewhat similar to Tuesday of this week – weren’t we lucky this time round!!

As always it is with mixed feelings that we come to the end of the Summer Series. On the way home we commented that at the beginning of the season we feel that the end will never come, but nearly 5 months later, as we face the loss of daylight saving this weekend, it is hard to imagine where the summer has gone.  We will miss the many cheery faces that greet us each week, many even when the weather lets us down. It would really be great if some of  you  who haven’t yet tried the ‘real thing’ out in the forest could make it up to some events over winter. I am sure that most of you would find that you would share in our delight of a run or wander in the pine forest on a crisp winters day. So often we wake on a Sunday to what looks like a day suitable for hibernating by the fire and it takes quite some willpower to don the orienteering gear and drive out to the forest. However we are never disappointed – once in the forest, sheltered from the wind and rain, with dry sand underfoot you are in a whole knew microclimate and you return home after a wonderful day in the outdoors, feeling so much happier and more fulfilled than if you had stayed at home and watched winter crawl by. We received many queries today about the suitability of forest events for beginners. The reply is MOST DEFINITELY!! The more ‘serious’ the event, the more suitable it is for everyone as there will be a larger choice of courses and therefore one more suitable for all. At most forest events there is even a string course for the real littlies and the white course is set under strict guidelines ensuring that there is a control at every decision point, guiding young children all the way. It is much easier than course 4 at the Summer Series as here we are trying to cater for all in 4 courses and also, as you are in a confined park, with full visibility, there is less danger in getting lost. Non club members are warmly invited to turn up to almost all events. The only exceptions are the Championship events which are pre entry events. These are clearly marked in the programme. Non members can still enter these events but they have to pay an extra one day levy to NZOF (our national body). This is $9 for an adult and $5.50 for a child. If you are planning on entering these championship events it would probably be sensible to join a club. One such event is the Easter/Anzac Carnival in April. It will be a great event to come along to but if you don’t want to join one of the clubs you will need to pay the extra levy.

There is an event this Sunday in Woodhill forest, with start times between 11.00am and 2.00pm. From the end of the North Western Motorway, head north through Kumeu to Restall Rd, the Woodhill Forest Headquarters Rd about 10km before Helensville. Turn left into Restall Rd and follow the O signs through a manned gate and on down towards the beach. For the organisers, this is a trial of our new Sport Ident timing system on a great sand dune forest map. Cost $8 adult, $4 child, $20 family maximum PLUS $2 a head hire of an E card for those who do not own one (or buy for $50)

We hope to see you in the forest, but if not, have a great winter and we will see you again when the Summer Series 2003-2004 commences at the end of October.
