Day 2 Rock Oyster OY & SST

Tintookies Orienteers invite you to a weekend of orienteering on this unique landscape. In the north east is the Ridley Conservation Park which contains remnant stands of woodland and grassland vegetation. An old stock route used to pass through this area. It is home for the hairy nosed wombat. Much of the map area was originally part of an ancient sea bed hence you will see lots of fossilised oyster shells. Some of the private land has been cleared for occasional cropping. Complex but very clearly defined spur gully terrain dominates the balance of the map. Careful route choice will help to greatly reduce potentially high climb rates.

Directions: To NE of Mt Pleasant (about 50km to event from this point) follow the Angas Valley Rd towards Walkers Flat. Turn left on Murraylands road and follow signs. After crossing the Marne River the turn to the arena is approximately 1.4km on the left
DIRECTIONS UPDATE...After some challenging wind and rain over the last few days we hope to have some good weather for Sunday. Please be aware when travelling to the event that there are large numbers of kangaroos in the area particularly on and near Murraylands road.

The detailed directions for Sunday's event are;

Travel down Murraylands road. Turn left at Rochow Road (sign posted). This turnoff is about 2km from the night start. Follow signs and then travel 2 km along Rochow Road then turn left at Schwertie Road. Follow signs. Drive approximately 1 km down Schwertie Road. Follow signs and orange cones to event area.
