First Saltbush cross country event for 2015 at Mt Laura North

Tuesday, 7 April 2015

On Sunday April 12th the Saltbush Orienteers venture into the bush for the first time this season. The event is to be held on our Mt Laura Hills North map which is a few kilometres north of Mt Laura - please click here for details. The area has some lovely vegetation with "gentle" hills so grab your shoes & hat and come out for a walk or trot around a bush course only a few minutes from Whyalla.


Around 70 participants enjoyed the Whyalla East Street Event on Sunday March 29th which was held at the Ada Ryan Gardens. Course setter Tonia Munday offered 4 courses on an almost perfect day with a good number of children in particular enjoying the Kids event within the gardens.

In the individual categories Troy Brougham led the way for the long 5.8km event with a time of 37min 47 sec, John Paterson completed the medium 4.1km event in 54min 45sec and Nemayah Munday was first in the Kids Course in 14min 5sec.

The group categories were well attended with one family venturing down from Pt Augusta to participate. Sequoia Munday & Ashley Brougham completed the short 2.8km course in 49min 13 sec, Gary & Will Sheasby come in with a time of 50min 20sec for the medium course while Kathy Roberts & co made their way around the long course in 101min 44sec.

The Veart family hand over their completed map to course setter Tonia Munday at the Whyalla East event.
