Mt Peel: 4pm Sunday 25th Feb

Join us for a bush event at Mt Peel. This follows the final Learn to Orienteer session. Newcomers are always welcome! The assembly area is at the top of the hill in Westminster St. Please note there is no parking in the roundabout area at the top of the hill and there are no toilets. There are many mountain bike tracks, marked on the map by a purple dashed line, indicating that they are out of bounds (for obvious safety reasons). Pedestrian friendly roads and tracks are mapped as black dashed lines.

There are 4 courses on offer:

Very Easy: 1.5km, for all juniors under 12, plus inexperienced juniors from 12-14 yrs, following the tracks, requiring basic map orientation and lots of decision making.
Easy: 2.0km, for juniors with some experience, and beginner adults. This course requires lots of decision making and a strong reliance on correct map orientation. You may like to try this after doing the Very Easy. There is no charge for doing a second course.
Short Moderate: 3.2km, some navigational experience required. Leg covering recommended.
Long Moderate: 3.9km, requires some experience and will test your fitness and route choice decisions. Leg covering strongly recommended.
There are some jumping cactus which can be hard to see in the long grass off the tracks.

Club Compasses can be borrowed, SI sticks for electronic timing can be hired.

Prices are: Junior Member $6, Junior non- member $9, Senior Member $7, Senior non-member $12. Family Member $20, Family Non Member $33. Newcomers (first event) pay member rates with free SI.
