Sunday, 20th July, 2014.
Well done Jenny Lawson for your win at the EP Orienteering Championships at Salt Creek On July 6th.

Despite the wet and wind, there were participants in all of the 6 courses.
The sun came out as we finished packing up!

Monday, 16th June, 2014.
Yeah! Lincoln O once again have won some of the trophies:
Ironstone, Jade and Interclub.
Congrats to Saltbush on winning the Quartz. You were TOO fast!

Luck went our way again for the EP Relays, weather wise.
Thanks to Gary and Michael plus catering team for making the event a success!


Monday, 26th May, 2014.
Weren't we luck with the weather for yesterday's event at Kapinnie Lakes!
Tim Ashman and Phil Clem both did the Hard long course.
Compare their route choices:Tim in blue and Phil in red.


Monday, 19th May, 2014.
If you have a phone or any GPS tracker, bring it to the event.
Brian will explain. We can compare our route choices.
Here is a comparison of Peg (green) and Brian (brown). Note that Peg only did the 1st part of the Long course whereas Brian did both. Hence extra tracks. He concedes that Peg made much better route choices.
NB This is not exact as a GPS was not used when the map was made.

18th May, 2014.
It's a gorgeous day here in Pt Lincoln! Looks like a great week ahead weatherwise.
Here's a blast from the past, when we had the EP Champs and EP Relays at Kapinnie Lakes in 2010.


4th May, 2014.
Thanks Cath, Warren and Bron for organising the Premiere Cross Country event for 2014.
There were 5 great courses in Louth Bay that catered for all levels.
Brian collected data from people who used some sort of GPS device to track their run.
Here are 3 files for one person and a comparison to the second person.

28th March, 2014
Thanks David and Sheryl for allowing the use of your garden to start the Kirton Point Street Park event.

14th March, 2014
We discovered the Danny Thorpe Reserve for our Street Park Orienteering event tonight.
THANKS!! Not sure?
Cath and Patrice gave us the highs and lows of Port Lincoln through their choice of START location.
With every up, there was a down. Unfortunately for ever down, there was an up.

However, the views were at their most spectacular to and from Control one.

Registration desk

Great views at the start.

Where will we go girls?

Here's the first hill to tackle.

A tough uphill finish for Portia and Elise.

 

A tough uphill finish for mum!

 

Comparing notes after the event.

 

MADE IT!

How did we go?

Fast finish downhill.

Hot work for pooch.

 

 

 

 

 


Despite uphill battles not experienced at the Marina, it was still a great evening!

Thanks Peg and Jenny for providing an interesting course.
It helped reveal parts of Port Lincoln that many didn't realise existed
!


The weather was perfect even though a bit chilly towards the end. Remember a jacket for after at the next event!

It was great to see many 'newcomers' from the first event back for more.

Patrice and Cath have organised the next event.
Like this one, there will be ups and downs as well, due to terrain around the chosen START area!

REWARDS = fun, friendship, fitness, and discovering more of a fabulous place to live!

Ari and Kadek register for the event.

Indra gets help in planning his course.

Is this part of the pre-season Netball training regime?

The group plans out their course.

Street Park events allow you to exercise the dog as well!

It was tricky getting aound this rocky spot.

RECORDING IS ESSENTIAL!
Writing the Start and Finish times are the responsibility of the orienteer.

 

It was tricky getting around this rocky spot.
Did having long legs make it any easier?

This is where we went mum!
Postmortems are part of the fun at Orienteering.


Orienteers old and new enjoyed the first event for 2014.

Report to the registration desk before starting and when you finish.


When events are held on public land, it is permissable to bring a leashed pet.
