Flinders Ranges Weekend - Great Events and Challenging Weather

on .

Great orienteering was experienced in the Flinders Ranges over the October Long Weekend but the weather was somewhat interesting.

Event 1 –Saturday -  warm-up event on the flatter eastern section of Wilpena Spurs, after arrangements were made to enable access through the new locked gate on the Sacred Canyon Rd. Event was held by Tintookies on a hot afternoon with the courses by Bob Smith

Event 2 – Sunday - Long OY event on Rawnsley – with a strong northerly and increasing dust through the morning into the afternoon so that Rawnsley Bluff was hidden by the dust.  Somewhat challenging weather although not as hot as the previous afternoon. Fortunately the assembly and download were in the covered area at the Rawnsley Bunkhouse.  Event organized by Tjuringa with courses by Sarah and Aylwin Lim

Event 3 – SA Middle Distance – by far the best of the weekend weather as a cool change and a little rain arrived on Sunday evening. Hence a cool morning initially with low cloud for the orienteering on the very challenging courses set by Bridget Uppill (assisted by Simon) with the event organized by Onkaparinga Hills.
