Summer Series Results from Mt Eden
December 14, 2000
Results from courses: One  Two  Three  Four

Another great evening to finish the Summer Series for 2000. A steep map so plenty to keep everyone busy. Fortunately no rain came but the clouds made great patterns as the sun went down - did anyone look?

There was a great crowd tonight. Usually the last event before Christmas suffers from competition from Christmas parties and the panic Christmas generates at this time of year - however the orienteers were immune to these pressures this year. We misjudged slightly and a few people had to draw up their own map. Weíre sorry this happened. Also we apologise for the near illegible control letters and circles on the map of the hill. We just couldnít get the pen to write on that surface despite going over each control twice. Also sorry that some people found the controls a little hard to see in the long grass - some of them are not very long and they need to be well into the ground to stop them walking. Putting the controls into the ground is actually quite a challenge on our volcanic cones - they are solid rock under the grass so you can try half a dozen places before you succeed in getting it in. This can mean we often have little choice in the exact placing at the control site.

Welcome to the newcomers tonight, and those back for the first time this season. A special welcome to our new friends from Sweden who have just moved over to live in New Zealand after visiting for the World Masters last Christmas. We look forward to seeing you at future events.

The Auckland Orienteer, the magazine of the Auckland centre, has been published on the website of the Auckland Club http://auckoc.tripod.com . It has the tentative program for the 2001 year and plenty of other things to read. The paper version is coming, sometime, for Club members.

Thank you very much to Brian Johnston for the setting today. This is a surprisingly hard map to set courses on and Brian did well. He is also very keen on micrO events and so organised one of them too. It was fun to watch the competition on this event so itís a pity a few more didnít have a go. Hopefully we will organise another if we can find a suitable map after Christmas so that Brian can have a go himself. Perhaps more of you may like to try it then. David Stewart was the winner of the Micro tonight, in a time of 7min 14.

For Club members, there will be a training session in the Waiuku region. The training is being aimed at newer and lesser experienced members and will be held in conjunction with the junior training camp. This is being held on this Saturday (16th) and you are to meet Darren Ashmore on the road into Waiuku at 9am (be prompt as heís not planning on waiting). For more details phone Mark Roberts (ph 521 9535 or email him at nmr@iprolink.co.nz ).

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and very best wishes for the New Year.

See you at the first event next year. This is at Carrington, use the Unitec No 3 gate off Carrington Rd to get to the start area. We are back to Tuesdays again so the date is Tuesday 23rd January 2001.
