Map: Stanley Park

This is the last weekend orienteering event of the year and it is on a Saturday!. The start and finish will be just outside the Brockton Oval pavilion and the event will be followed by a social gathering (with pizza etc) and a short AGM - both inside the pavilion so it will be dry and warm.

The event itself promises to be interesting and make the most of a newly updated map.

There will a mass start for the courses with 3 courses on offer.

Long ..8200 m

Medium ..6700 m

Short ..5100 m

Each course has forking which will make it a really fun event!

More details will follow but please reserve the date - Sat December 17th and come out enjoy some orienteering in Stanley Park!

A compass is optional (we have extra ones for borrowing). For added safety, a whistle is mandatory for all GVOC events. Read more in the WJR Introduction to Orienteering.
