Orienteering – 2nd Event

The second event in the 2020 CSW series is being held at Tunnel Gully in Upper Hutt this Sunday 9th August. Starts will be between 11 am and 1 pm. See HERE for more information.

Note that the yellow, orange, and red long courses will go through the 253 m Mangaroa Tunnel. The tunnel floor is reasonably flat and you can walk through the tunnel okay without a torch, but a small torch is recommended if you are planning on running or if you’re not so keen on the dark.

Also note that Orienteering Hutt Valley has a policy that whistles are to be carried at all non-urban events. Tunnel Gully is a non-urban event, so please ensure that all students have a whistle. There will be a limited supply of whistles for sale at registration for $2 each.

Please remember that if you are sick with any cold or flu symptoms, you should stay and home and wait until you have recovered before coming orienteering. The best 3 of 5 CSW events count towards the overall points in this year’s series, so it’s okay to miss one or two events.

See you on Sunday
