Potential Orienteering Map database.

Show Profile  ole codger Posted: 19 March 2007, 9:21 PM  
Could be of interest to CMOC or Hamilton club (why don't you fellas call yourselfs Waikato).Glen Murray- Rangiriri turn off junction, some good native on sth side owned by Lowry's and some good Manuka gullies on Nth side about 1km towards Rangiriri grazed by the same family who are orienteering friendly.
AMAKIWI plantation not far from Naike and owned by a group of farm foresters with various species planted on gully spur. Looks about 80 hectares. Nice cabin there as well.Parking a problem for large event

Last month while cycling from Pukerangi to Middlemarch, the area near Pukerangi looked superb for orienteering. There's a block of pines on the lft of the road that might be an ideal addition to the rocky farmland.

Matarae? If I understand you correctly...I think you will find that it is already mapped...and the Otago Champs are on there this weekend!

Cant quite find where exactly you are talking about Wayne, could you try to put it on the potential map database?

When I click on "View in Google Earth" I get a whole lot of code displayed. I have GE installed. I can view in Google Maps OK.

Anyone checked out Puketutu Island near Auckland airport and Ambury farm park?

Whenever I drive through Taupo (like I did last weekend for the nationals) I drive past an area that looks intricate and runnable from the road.
Has anyone checked out the extent of the forest just south of Waitahanui as you drive up SH 1 on the left hand side just after
the big hill?

Ambury farm park is mapped & used every year for summer series events. Not sure about puketutu island though

Yes Bryan. Derek Morrison and I went for a walk in there. Absolutely brilliant. It will be felled very shortly judging by size of the trees.

Article in yesterday's herald about how Puketutu Island is being gifted as a park in the nearish future, including a photo map composite which looked like it had a few patches of interesting detail. Not sure if that's gifted to ARC or Manukau CC (if that makes a difference). Will include a wetland/forest restoration area fertilised with biocompost from the surrounding sewage treatment area. Yum.

I was out on Puketutu Island last month and thought it would be awesome for a sprint race. That's great news it is becoming a public park.

Anyone checked out Braemar kettleholes on the shores of Lake Pukaki?

On Braemar Road close by, there's also a place called 'The Black Hole' - this sounds promising.

That area must be immediately north of the current irishmans creek area.

Carsten, Chris and I tried to find a beech forest area in the vicinity of Springs junction the other day (immediately south), There is a massive area of beech forest that has flattish contours, however only chris can run through it (carsten and I can't).

I have also suggested to Carsten that he looks in the vicinity of lake pukaki at the area nw of lake alexandrina and the area at the end of mt cook station road (keep on going up the road past braemer to the end....

Still reckon theres an awesome carnival to be had in the mckenzie country!

Carnival in Mckenzie country would be awesome

I reckon Twizel township would be an ideal venue for a sprint race
