1999 SA CHAMPIONSHIP ORIENTEERING RESULTS

Sunday 19 September 1999

Fine and mild, slightly overcast and about 20 degrees = perfect ‘O’ weather for the 1999 SA Championship.
The map looked good (the best bits looked very good), although I suspect a scale of 1:10,000 would have been welcomed  by many competitors. So why were the course times so long? The foundation for the course lengths were for National standard competitors to achieve the required winning times. This I then ignored in courses 8 and 9 (M70/75,W60/65/70/75 + various AS classes) which were set longer than preferred (course 9 almost 1km longer). That was so those ‘hard nav.’ Competitors did not miss out on what I consider are the best bits of the map – value for money, A standards, etc. This extra length flowed on to the other hard courses to some extent. Even with that extra length I was still expecting that at least one or two of the classes running courses 8 and 9 would achieve a winning time of 60 minutes. Alas, it seems I over shot on all ‘hard navigation’ courses (except M21A) by about 15 minutes. So for those who were stressed by the excessive time on course, I apologise. For those who had plenty of ‘O’ for their $, I hope you enjoyed it and will be looking forward to the Badge event at Narrinyeri Hills next year. We hope the weather will be as kind and will adjust the courses to meet the specifications.

Perfect organization! Great finish/ assembly area. While a lot of times seemed long, this may only be a reflection on the quality of SA orienteers as correct winning times were achieved by many age groups. Our 4 courses were very challenging and enjoyable, well done Wallies!
