~~~***KNOCKOUT INFO***~~~

Want to qualify for this years World Orienteering Championships? The Gold Coast NOLs (21-24 Apr) are now an official Oceania championship and the winners of the Gold Coast knockout can book their plane ticket for Denmark. But even if you are far from that standard, please consider entering this local knockout and help our elite competitors, and starts and results teams practise for the Gold Coast mega knockout event. You are guaranteed at least two "knockouts". Otherwise, of course, feel free to enter the short and easy courses on offer.

Special conditions of this knockout (which are also conditions at the Gold Coast)
** Competitors Choice for heat allocation.
** Map Choice for route selection.
"I think I need to practise decision making under pressure. I don't know what "competitors choice" means? I have done only one map choice in my life, I had better at least practise once more before the Oceania knockout. Hmm, I am not the greatest navigator but I know how to sit on someone's tail and burn them off at the finish."

If some of that resonates with or you just love fun and friendly competition, then this mini knockout event is for you and your friends. All welcome to compete in the knockout and anyone eliminated in the first round will get another round.
-- Brenton and team
