Event Report: Bush 10 Fred Jacoby Park Trail-O

Sunday 1st September 2019

Location: Fred Jacoby Park near Mundaring Weir BrownliesNorthLedge2019

The Trail-O has become a regular annual feature on the calendar, and this year’s event was held at North Ledge with start and finish at Fred Jacoby Park. Eighty people came out and very few of those would have managed to stay dry with several heavy showers coming through during the event. The little stream that the string course crossed turned into a raging torrent, but the kids had good fun with the water and mud.

Event Report: Bush 9 Calophylla SOL

Sunday 18th August 2019CalophyllaJack

Location: Ridley Rd, Mt Observation 

Ninety people enjoyed glorious orienteering weather (as promised) whilst competing in SOL courses set by Mike Howe. With much of the terrain being fairly open, times were generally quite fast. Blue and pink lady orchids and some spider orchids could be spotted decorating the landscape, along with many other wildflowers.

Many thanks to Mike Howe for the courses, Ian Fletcher who towed the caravan, Moreen Cox who towed the toilet, Eddie Plummer, Chas Lane, Jan Fletcher, Phil Humphries, Peter Gillon, Sandra Tarr, Michael, Caitlin and Isaac Madden, Jennifer Binns and Tony Simpkins, all of whom helped set up, pack away and/or collected controls.  You are all very much appreciated. Apologies if I missed anyone.
