NZSS Orienteering Team - Australian Championship Carnival 2013

Show Profile  R2 Posted: 28 September 2013, 10:12 AM  
Training Day: We were extremely fortunate to have 'local' Kiwi Rob Jessop plan 2 trainings for our team & some of the other NZers who are travelling over to take part in the Australian Champs Carnival. In the morning we trained on Black Mountain-a map similar to what we are expecting for the Schools races. Rob had planned a map walk to familiarise our six '1st timers' with typical Australian features, then had set out control flags on a short course show-casing some 'Australian style' course setting. In the afternoon we had a map walk on the rocky and steep Mt Taylor - with amazing views our over Canberra. We used this map for a look at the rock detail. Thanks Rob - our team really appreciated your expertise and local knowledge. In the evening the Australian state teams arrived- lots of catching up with friends made on previous trips. The kiwi team were first to bed as we are still getting over the 2 hour time difference. All looking forward to the Sprint Race today with our fist starter (Vida) off at 11.10am through to our last starter (Alice) at 2.18pm. For facebook users this post and photos are on the NZSS page
