Double Header Weekend Of Orienteering near Burra

on .

An enjoyable weekend of orienteering was held in the Burra area on 28-29 August, with orienteers being treated to fast open mallee spur gully terrain for 2 events.

The Saturday afternoon event run by Onkaparinga Hills on Worlds End North featured courses set by Evalin Brautigam,  Orienteers had to negotiate some steeper terrain with complex water courses through to the gentler more subtle terrain in the latter part of the courses.  Results are here, along with a link to WinSplits - https://eventor.orienteering.asn.au/Events/Show/11115

The 2021 SA Middle-Distance Championships were held on the Sunday morning at Paradise, using a section of the map that had not been used for a long time. It was mostly fast-running terrain, generally mallee, but with large areas of rough open land. Many controls were located on watercourses or erosion gullies. The three longest courses had to cross a ridge system that bisected the map, offering long legs with large-scale route choices.

The event was presented by Tjuringa Orienteers with Aylwin Lim as the course planner, and controller Robin Uppill

All course maps and some of the various routes taken by participants are available on RouteGadget. Participants are encouraged to add their routes (either using GPS or hand-drawn) for others to compare, if they haven't already done so. http://ospot.xyz/gadget/rg2/#245
