Summer Series Results from One Tree Hill
March 15, 2001

Results from courses: One   Two   Contours   Three   Four

Another great day for orienteering. Pity it was the last of this Summer Series but with loosing daylight saving this weekend it would be impossible to hold any more evening events. As it was we had to use torches to find the controls at collection time last night. Good job we had practiced at the night O in Taupo at the weekend! We hope you all enjoyed the season and will be back for more in October.

This Sunday (18th March) is the second of the OY events. The venue is Deaks Head map in Woodhill forest, entry via Rimmer Rd off State Highway 16 (head out to the end of the NW motorway and then head for Helensville). There will be the usual orienteering road signs from SH16. Again we have to travel over Maori land to reach this map so there will be a $5.00 road charge collected at the gate. For first time forest orienteers there will be a special price on Sunday - the same as the Summer Series charges. Make yourself known at the campermatic (the same one you are used to!!) as a Summer Series orienteer venturing out to the forest. There are courses suitable for all levels of experience and fitness, including a longer, simple orienteering course for those who want to have a longer run but who as yet do not have enough orienteering experience to tackle the longer harder courses. There will also be a string course to entertain the younger children from toddlers up!

Rob Garden has written some notes to help “Newcomers to O’ing in the forest” so we’ve put these on the Auckland website for your interest. Go to and click on ‘Introduction to Newcomers’ to get Rob’s advice.

Next Sunday (25th of March) there is a promotion event on the Beautiful Hills map. This event is specially put on to introduce people to forest orienteering with lots of experienced orienteers on hand to give any help they can. Someone will even take you around one of the courses if you wish. This map is reached by entering Woodhill Forest at the Forest Headquarters entry. This is on State Highway 16 about 5-10 minutes drive north of Waimauku. The courses are down the bottom of the map so you will have to drive through the manned gate to get to the start/finish area. From the turn off the main road just keep going straight ahead to the manned gate. There are courses for all levels:- white (like summer series course 4), yellow (like summer series course 3), orange (like the summer series courses 1 & 2 easier controls) and two red courses (like summer series courses 1 and 2 and often harder). There is also a long adventure course of about 6-7 km and of a yellow standard. This is also a secondary schools event so the forest will be busy. The lower courses have deliberately been made easy as an encouraging start to those who haven't visited the forest before. There are special reduced charges for those who are new to forest orienteering. For the new orienteers the costs are the same as the summer series, $5 for adults, $4 for juniors and $14 for a family. Sorry, other orienteers have to pay $8 for adults, $4.50 for juniors and a $20.50 for a family.

Club members, there is an evening training session on Wednesday the 21st concentrating on route choice. This will be held at the AUT and will start at 7:30pm. Darren Ashmore will lead the discussions. This is a great opportunity so pencil in the date and come along. Further details from Mark Roberts at 5219535 or nmr@iprolink.co.nz

WAIRAMARAMA ROGAINE …… SATURDAY 24 MARCH 2001
The Auckland region’s first rogaine is on Saturday 24 March. With a 6 hour and a 12 hour option, you can take all day to try and collect the 50+ controls. Please remember that the $30.00 entry fee includes a full meal on completion. Camping is available at $5/head and there is a range of farm stay options available - contact Richard Gemmel on 09 - 232 8424 directly to arrange this. We recommend that you stay overnight and then enter the Counties Manukau orienteering event up the Awhitu Peninsula on the Sunday. The two events are approximately 50km apart. Entries close on 17 March with more information and entry forms available on the website at www.mapsport.co.nz/rog/rogaine.html or call Aidan Nelson on 09 - 232 8448.

Remember the closing date for entries to the Nationals at Easter is approaching. Get your entries in before March the 25th. Entry form available on the Hamilton Club webpage. Find this through the NZOF site at www.nzorienteering.com .

Thank you everyone for coming to the Summer Series and making it such an enjoyable event. We would now very much hope you will come to some more of our events in the forests and farms around Auckland. The program for the rest of the year is available from the webpage and this will be updated occasionally if any changes occur. As the full details are not always available please give someone a phone call to find exactly how to get to the event. It’s not supposed to be a challenge getting to the event - the challenge comes once you are out on the map!! The web address for the NZ O Federation site is www.nzorienteering.com and from there you can find events all over the country (and other interesting information).
