OSA Presentation Aftenoon

on .

The annual OSA Presentation afternoon-evening was held on Sunday 26th Nov at the Glenunga Hub. The event got underway with a short 2 person relay, the last part of each leg was a maze section.  The map and courses were planned by our 2017 Coach in Residence Manu Jurado.

The intention was not to cross the tape boundaries, but Ben C decided to demonstrate athleitc skills and leap one of the boundaries.  Many more photos from the maze and subsequent presentation in our Facebook page.

Shorter courses are in the parklands, whilst those wanting a longer urn may have some street running.

 Orienteering is an activity where the whole family can participate together as a group, or split up and do the courses individually.

SA Club Relays at Flinders University

on .

Flinders University was the venue for the 2017 SA Club Relays, run again by the Southern Arrows. Courses were set by 2 of the junior Arrows, Nick Congedi and Angus Haines, with Simon Uppill as the controller.

The plaza area of the university was used as the assembly area, with a spectator run through on all courses. These started by a loop  through the campus buildings south of the lake, with a run through and a second loop on the complex multi-level area of buildings with several quadrangles north of the lake. The format followed the 2 person team, with each person running two legs, except for the easy course where each team member ran only one leg.

All clubs were well represented, and took up the option to expand their teams by having a club member team up with a non-club member. Some very close completion resulted for the club championship, and Onkaparinga Hills looked to have ruined their chances with some team mis-punching. However a sprint finish by Zara Soden against junior Emily Sorenson giving the team of Bridget Anderson and Zara the win in the Course 1 women’s group, helped OHOC to just pip Yalanga for the club trophy.

Results and splits are here.
