Results of ' Pukekura


Thankyou everyone for coming to the Pukekura orienteering event. It was our first time setting an orienteering course, (with lots of help from Jacqui). Sorry for those that did the long orange and had trouble finding control 5, yes it was in the wrong place. The weather stayed fine for the event which was a plus. Thankyou to all the people that helped bring in the controls.
Cheers Len and Pam
These were quite tough courses and I must apologise for the placement of #5 on the long which held some people up for a time - my fault entirely. I have included below the times for those who couldn't find #5, as well as for Simmo who sailed right past #19 without clipping it!! 
Cheers Jacqui
