Craigburn Park 16th February 2007

38 degrees! 38 degrees! 38 degrees! 38 degrees! For the week leading up non-orienteer’s were all predicting that no one would come! Well we proved them wrong…. We must be a crazy bunch!!! Friday night ended up being overcast with a slight breeze to help in relieving the heat. Under the conditions it was interesting to find the unavoidable hills were a bigger killer than the weather. The 4km medium course ended up being the most popular and probably the wisest choice.

An extra bonus at this year’s event at Craigburn Park was the use of the Kindergarten. Instead of using the adjacent ‘dust bowl’ many of us enjoyed having our dinner on the green grass under the shade of the mature gums.

A special thanks to Brett Merchant for course setting, to Adrian Uppill for helping out with many map changes and our helpers Rory and Brian McCombe who were a great help when it came to bringing controls in after dark.
