Egmont National Park Survey


I'm sure you are a regular Park user, and as such DOC want to hear from you. They are looking to close tracks, huts, centres (ie save money) and believe the residents of Taranaki have little interest in the park. Let them know your thoughts.......

How about that weather?!  Well done on the teams that came out in the rain and thanks for eating all of the sausages.  Slight change in standings from tonight's announcement.  Sassbow taking the lead in the mixed run (once we got you in the correct category) equal on points, winning on time.
Look forward to seeing you all next season.  We still need 1 setter.  Get in touch if you want to give it a go.

Thanks to our sponsors Bubbles Early Learning Centre, Mitchell Cycles and Kiwi Outdoors and to all in Orienteering Taranaki that help to make this happen.

Which way did you go?  To the hills for the points? or the gentler undulations for a nice walk (and jelly beans!!!).  Thanks Paula & Tash (3 Girls...) for a great event ... even in the wet.  Many teams making it back with a full card (none within 90 minutes) but even with the 7 minute penalty, Better Luck Next Time took 'line-honours' for the short event. See the post below for details of Sunday's event in Pukekura Park and don't forget to email Annie for pre-entries.
AND we'll see you all next week for the season closer, BBQ and spot prizes!!!

The most popular wrong answer was 1976 for the bridge at 32. The correct answer was 1979, being the sunset end of the city side (North West) .of the lower bridge. The upper bridge was dated 1976 at the sunrise end of the mountain side (South East)
The other bridge at 11 was wrong by two teams who both put 1932 as their answer. I have checked and there is no such date or number anywhere on the Devon street bridge over the Te Henui. There's a number of dates but 1904 is the correct one.
I apologise for the misplacement of number 90 in Girls High. Everyone who went there, & wrote something like no boulder got it.
I hope you had fun!
