With the forecast of 23 degrees and sunny, what more can you expect than a walk in the park. The first twilight event for the season was organised by the Weston Emus, their namesake event. The emus have dwindled in numbers over the years, but that didn’t stop six members to ensure that the proceedings ran smoothly. The event provides two moderate courses (not hard) and two easy courses. Most of Weston Park is open with not too many contour lines, it has lots of features ranging from picnic tables, park benches, BBQs, playgrounds distinguish trees, disc golf baskets, bridges and many water attributes. This range allows for many control points and easier runs. ACT Orienteering has used this area many times over the years and yet we still see lots of people attending the event. With over 154 competitors, park orienteering is alive and well.
Special thank you to John Harding for the memorable photos of the event displayed on Facebook, check it out! Results are available here, and you can upload and view GPS tracks from the event on Livelox.
At the finish, the ACT Australian Schools Orienteering Championship team were able to assembly with pizza and nibbles and be recognised for their outstanding achievements from their ASOC event, the week before. Well Done, Team!
