South Island Orienteering Champs

Are you heading to the South Island for your Christmas holidays? If you fancy some orienteering while you're there, the SI Champs are on in the Blenheim and St Arnaud areas on 25-27 January 2013. The Nelson club web site will have the details shortly here.

These are A grade events and well worth the trip over the Strait.

TOPEC results 14th Oct

Setters comments: It was inspiring to see so many keen young runners out on a cold, spring day! My courses were more technical than normal due in part to me placing a control in the wrong (if nearby) clearing my only excuse is when I put the controls out on Saturday the light was so poor I struggled to identify sky above the trees! and also using every pit and depression in the thick. Well done for getting round.
Thanks to everyone who helped collect controls and run the caravan.
