Sunday 26th March 2017
The second NavDash outing for 2017 is on a Sunday morning, taking advantage of a brand new map at John Curtin College of the Arts. There will be plenty of navigational challenges including some small areas of bush next to the school coupled with the school grounds.
The location is close to the many Fremantle coffee shops, perfect for an après-run fix and you’ll be ready to enjoy the OWA Annual General Meeting that will follow immediately after the event.
NavDash are short distance (2-3.5kms), line courses where controls must be visited in the numerical order shown for each course. The hard courses are navigationally challenging while the easy course is more suitable for novices and children.
The course lengths, by distance covered, are:
Hard Long: approx. 3.5 km
Hard Short: approx. 2.3 km
Easy: approx. 1.6 km.
This is a multi-level venue. The map shows accessible ground-level features, with accessible stairs and ramps between mapped levels. With one exception, higher levels of buildings will be inaccessible and should be treated as out of bounds. In the one instance where there are two accessible levels the 'tunnel' symbol (heavy square-dotted line) has been used. Since ground level detail has priority for mapping, the tunnel outline actually shows the passable limits of the upper level.
MapScale: Note that the map scale is 1:2,500
Safety: There are likely to be numerous non-orienteers in some parts of the campus. As always, they have right-of-way. In particular, take a wide route around blind corners.
Directions: Entry off Ellen Street near the corner of East Street, Fremantle. Enter through main school gates and park in school carpark
