Orienteering Australia

Event information: Bendigo Bush Classic 1 - Mt Kooyoora

Export to calendar Back

Orienteering will be provided this Saturday at Kooyoora, but in a modified format.
The timing system (SIME) will be available only for people doing courses 4 and 5 on the east side of the road, from 12:30 to last finish at 3:00pm. Maps will be available for people completing courses 4 & 5. No drinking water will be provided for people attending. All participants are expected to bring their own water to be used whilst running and after running. To support social distancing during this pandemic, people will not be encouraged to congregate. Despite this, there will be a friendly volunteer to greet newcomers and provide them with support and guidance so they know what to do. No event fees will be collected on the day because of these changes.

There will be 3 hard navigation practice courses, with stands and flags only. These will be out in the terrain from Friday (20/3) to Tuesday (24/3). PDF versions of the maps for courses 1,2, and 3 are available on Eventor and will be available on the Bendigo Orienteers website. If you wish to run these courses you should print out maps from the web site. There will be no maps for these courses at the event. This means that experienced orienteers can visit Kooyoora at any time from Friday to Tuesday (inclusive of those days) and complete a course in their own time, using their own timing system.

If printing maps is a problem for you, contact Julie Flynn before Friday: julie_flynn@fastmail.fm

Please remember that much of Kooyoora State Park is remote; if you go out on a course on your own, you are advised to let someone know where you are going and which course you are doing, then let that person know when you have finished. It is recommended that you take a mobile phone with you. Please remember to take your own water with you; there will be no water out on the courses. General regulations for events organised by Bendigo Orienteers:
- Dogs are not permitted to attend or participate.
- In areas managed by Parks Victoria or DELWP (Forests, reserves, and national, state and regional parks) cars must only be parked on roadways or in designated parking areas. Parking is limited at this site; car pooling is strongly advised.
