Wellington Orienteering Association & Taranaki Masters

Taranaki Masters Games (aka WOA OY 3 & 4)

Background

Orienteering Taranaki (OT) is supporting Sport Taranaki to get more people active and hopefully introduce more people to navigation sports. Hence OT is running WOA OY#3 & 4 to double as orienteering events in the Taranaki Masters Games.

The Events

Saturday 20 March is a 1 hour long combined short course then score event.

The event starts on "Hoaketanga" with a point-to-point section that completes at a map change onto the "Te Henui" map for a score event.

The total time for this combined event is one hour including map change and score event planning time.

Starts from 2pm.

Sunday 21 March is a classic point-to-point event on the remapped north part of "Ratapihipihi" map.

Starts from 10:30am

The Maps

"Hoaketanga", (aka "a pleasant place to be"), features a detailed manmade area, buildings and parkland. This map has previously been used for Uni Games 2009 and B4NY2010.

"Te Henui" - unused since remapping 2009/2010 - featuring regenerating native, parkland, urban areas, building within a river valley/gully/spur map. It is a much more technically difficult area than one would expect to find within a city.

"Ratapihipihi"- unused since remapping 2009/2010 – featuring regenerating native, plantations and farmland on rolling Taranaki terrain.

Entry

To assist Sport Taranaki & OT, if you are old enough (over 35), could you please enter using the attached form? (You never know, you could be a very rare person in the form of Taranaki Master Games Orienteering age grade champion.) Please note that if you enter using the form, before 25 February your entry fee will be $15 for both the events. After that date the fee will be $20 for both. You can of course enter the OY on the day for $10 per event, but if you won you wouldn’t be a TMG champ but rather a much more common person.

For other sports in the Taranaki Masters Games Program
