17 Dec 2016 - CLUB CHRISTMAS PARTY AND PRESENTATIONS

This year our Christmas Party and Presentation will be held at the Shedden's place - 56 Boardman Road, Bowral.

The program for the afternoon will be: nibbles from 1pm, presentation from 1.30, BBQing and socialising from 2pm. Perhaps a bit of orienteering. If you can’t get there by 1.00, don’t worry, the BBQ will be fired up into the late afternoon.

23 Oct 2016 - CLUB RELAYS - ANOTHER INOVATIVE EVENT FROM SUE AND PAUL

Our traditional club relays were held at Warragamba Recreation Reserve on Sunday 23 October. As usual they were set and organised by Paul and Sue. And as usual they came up with another interesting way to run a relay.

Partners were drawn and a decision had to be made - course A or course B. They were both roughly parallel and about the same length.

For the results and a report from Lyn click on this link: Relay results and report (PDF).

8 May 2016 - HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES #2 FOR 2016

How else would you spend Mothers Day but run around the bush in the rain! It was very good weather for a run - the rain was more a nuisance than a soaking. This also meant we had most of the Lake Alexandra park to ourselves. It was very pleasing to see 34 competitors turn up with many of them being first timers.

Angus and Ruth set a very demanding event for those who chose to attack the hard courses but there was always the Moderate and Easy for those who did not want too much challenge.

A full report is now available on the results page. The results are available through Eventor or the following links: Results; Splits.

10 April 2016 - HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES #1 FOR 2016

20 March 2016 - METRO #1 FOR 2016

The individual results and splits are in. There will be a brief report and team results to come.

Our expert MetrO planner, Stephan Wagner, has once again made great use of this excellent area. There were some tired runners after having to struggle up several hills. But the views were worth it.

13 February 2016 - SUMMER SATURDAYS NUMBER 7 - FINAL

Mowbray Park

The 2016 Summer Sats ended on a high note. This was the second new map for the series, with quite a different setting. A working farm with paying guests offers a few challenges for course setting, but the manager, Blair Briggs was most cooperative.

Thanks Neville for a great use of the new area.

Full report and results now available.

Series point score and report to come soon.

6 February 2016 - SUMMER SATURDAYS NUMBER 6

A great evening for a run - not too hot and a little early rain had driven away the kids party and jumping castle leaving us with our favourite assembly area.

Some very close racing and a course that allowed for multiple route choices. It was great to see so many first timers come and try orienteering.

Full report and results now available.

Progress point score is now available. See where you stand before the last event at Mowbray Park.

9 January 2016 - SUMMER SATURDAYS NUMBER 2

Well done Lachlan.

For his first attempt as a course setter, Lachlan made a very impressive start. His controls were thoughtful and with help from mum Wendy they provided a challenge for the more experienced orienteer and some interesting course choices for all runners.

Full report and results now available.

23 Aug 2015 - VICTORY IN METRO LEAGUE FINAL

SHOO finished a successful 2015 season of MetrO League with both teams winning on Sunday resulting in a Division 2 first and Division 5 third. Angus Shedden and John Russell have also won the prestigious Individual Medal (highest point scorer award) for Divisions 2 and 5 respectively for 2015.

It was a damp start at Nurraginy with a light shower of rain. The rain stopped just prior to 10am with the cool air resulting in winning times of between 30 and 40 minutes for 5.8km for Division 2 and 3.8km for Division 5. Courses were ideal for runners with minimal navigational challenges but a few interesting route choices were available.

Given we had 7 competitors available for our Division 2 team, Chippy and I decided to step aside to let our most competitive five score a sensational win: 30 points versus 25 for GO. Division 5 also won: 33 points versus 22 for IKO.

Well done and thank you to all, including John Russell who was with us in spirit, for a great 2015 MetrO League.

Stephan (acting captain).
