The Piney Lakes Metro Series event was held on Saturday afternoon with courses set by first time MetrO series setters, Michael and Patrick Dufty (pictured above). They came up with some interesting and challenging courses and also did a substantial remap of the area. The weather forecast was for a sizzling hot day, however the sea breeze came in early enough that the temperature had cooled rapidly to much better running weather by the start of the event.

Event Report: Bush 12 Gunapin


Sixty-nine orienteers travelled to Gunapin Ridge to enjoy a great (if not the great) area for orienteering in WA. A beautiful, cool day greeted the competitors, there was no rain in sight.  I planned eight courses with the view that a sprint championship and a long distance championship were in the offing next weekend. Apart from one control, #126, that was misplaced, many competitors commented that they were happy with the variety of courses and the challenge that they presented.
