Very different weather to last year and stunning views from the medium and long courses. Thanks to Rick for setting 3 great courses. Well done to those who went for a swim!

Issues with controls 62 and 70 for the first four runners have been corrected and the results updated.

There was an issue with the clear and check for one team and it was not possible to correct this - free entry to next event if you let the caravan know.

Couple of items of lost property - pink merino top and HMNZS baseball cap.

The results from the park event are at the bottom of this post. Thanks to Stella for 3 great courses and to the Taranaki weather for a perfect day. It was good to see lots of people trying orienteering for the first time or coming back to it after a break, hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

There were quite a few mis-punches (MP on your printout) which is where you have missed a point or done them in the wrong order. Remember in orienteering events you have to get the points in order. Orienteering Taranaki also run rogaine events and these are different in that you can collect the points in any order.

Our next orienteering event will be on Sunday 13th October at TOPEC, details to follow. The spring rogaine series starts on Wednesday 6th November.

The split times (times between controls) can be found here:

If you mis-punched (MP in the table) and didn't get a final time this is the place to see how well you did for each leg. There is one anomalous result in the short where someone forgot to punch the finish control so they have a very long time even though they actually did very well.

Results in table form are below.

Thanks for turning up and braving the wind.

The final scores are below, some people had to leave early so there is quite a range. Well done to those who hadn't done a rogaine before, this was larger than our normal weekly summer rogaines (which will start in November).

There were two clues that were incorrect:
  -  The sign at clue 90 had been removed in the last month after being there since 1988....
  -  The circle for clue 20 was in the wrong place, our mistake, sorry
Hopefully anyone who visited these two places claimed the points.
