Venue: Lionel Watts Park, Blackbutts Road, Frenchs Forest.
Map: "The Pipeline"

NEW MATERIAL AT 'THE FOREST', BUT WILL RON BE OFFERING THE PEACE PIPE?
The familiar Davidson/Belrose map has been significantly augmented south along the pipeline towards Frenchs Forest, and will be an almost new puzzle to many SSS fans. Surprises afoot here - as some drop, some climb, and some can't wait. The redeveloped showgrounds will provide a fantastic MINI area.

The Sydney Summer Series (also known as Sydney Map Running) offers great summer orienteering in Sydney, utilising the city's best parks, reserves, beaches, harbour-side and bush areas. Join us as we continue the action packed 30th season.
