Summer Series Results from Self's Farm
January 27, 2004

Results from courses: One   Two   Three   Four

A lovely evening on a farm map – what better for a summer series orienteering event. I know, all that and electronic timing too. We hope you enjoyed trying out some new technology in our sport.

Thank you very much to Malcolm Gawn and Jeff Greenwood, the setter and controller for the evening. They’d spent considerable time in preparation and set courses with real interest. Malcolm was delighted that he was able to tempt at least a couple of course one runners to jump into the lake and swim part of a leg on their course. Detailed scrutiny later showed that this might have been 20 seconds quicker than the route on dry land. On course 3 there was a small loop which entailed going to the same control twice with 2 controls in between. Some didn’t note the specified direction to go round this loop but we’ve accepted both directions.

If you would like to look at your split times (and those of others), they can be accessed via the link on the Auckland OC webpage http://auckoc.tripod.com

Next week we are back to an old favourite – Auckland Domain – but starting at the band rotunda this time. Put Tuesday 3rd February down on your calendar.

Other dates to note are the 12th and 21 of February for the two Summer Series night events. The start times for these events depend a bit on the available daylight. There are to be three courses, equivalent to courses 1, 2 and 3 from the Summer Series. Our idea is those who only want to test them selves a bit can start on course 3 in the twilight while courses 1 and 2 won’t open until it is dark. We guess the first starts on course 3 will be about 19:45 and on courses 1 & 2 they will be about 20:15. The starts can then go until about 21:30. – A good torch is necessary – if you have a headlamp all the better. Some people carry two light sources – one for seeing where they are going and another for reading the map – a strong light on the paper makes it hard to read and when you look up you find your night vision temporarily gone.

Another date you won’t see on the Summer Series program is Sunday, the 15th February. This is a chance for you to try forest orienteering. The Club is running a promotional event on a map we call Pot Luck, This map is in Woodhill forest, enter on Rimmer Road and follow it right through to it’s end very close to the beach. This event is especially good for those who are new to orienteering but have done one or more Summer Series events. We are, of course, very happy to have total new comers and experienced orienteers too. We’d love to see you all there. The event centre is only the coastal strip away from the beach in a lovely bit of forest – ideal for a picnic. There will also be a string course for the littlies. The electronic timing used today will be out again – on some but not all courses.
