COURSE SETTER'S NOTES:
Mapped tracks are generally quite clear. Hard 1 & 2 courses please note some sections of track in the southern part of the map are less clear.
The start is located at a gate. Please leave the gate how you find it.
All courses have at least one fence crossing. All fences are plain wire so please go through them not over. Where a crossing point is marked, please use it.
Like everywhere else growth has been strong the last few years. In most parts visibility remains average for forest events. In some gullies and on southern slopes growth is stronger so visibility is less.
The Easy and Very Easy courses have 2 taped legs including from the last control to the finish. Please follow the tapes.
There will be no water on courses. There will be water at the finish only.
Safety bearing is north to Dicks Creek Road or the lane east of the assembly.
Between 10:00 and 12:00. Queuing starts.
Courses close at 14:00 (2:00pm). You must report to the finish by 14:00, whether you have finished your course or not.
