The 2018 orienteering season ended on a cool overcast atypical summer evening at Glenelg for the final event before Christmas for the Twilight Series. See below for one of the courses. The series resumes on Jan 4 at the Paddocks map in Salisbury. Some of our juniors and their parents are currently orienteering at the OA junior camp in Victoria.
The highlight of the year was the 2018 Australian Championships carnival – you can revisit all the highlights in the special edition of the newsletter – see link on this page. Also see the other newsletter this year for other highlights.
The SA Schools Team achieved their best results for some years, coming 2nd behind the ACT at the schools championships events in the carnival. Toby Cazzolato and Abigail George received the Sue Millard junior trophies, largely for their carnival performances.
Another 2018 highlight was the June long weekend in the Flinders Ranges near Wilpena, with excellent courses in the Long OY event were recognised with Craig Colwell awarded course planner of the year for his courses. See Route Gadget to revisit the courses.
In August, the Southern Arrows club relays at Moonrocks saw the highest participation in the event, and the SA Long Championships were held at Mulga Valley.
