Here is the whole list of results for 2017 – hope to see many of you today at Redan on Ripon Street South at 11.00am. How are you going – try Ian’s challenge today and pick up ‘extra time’ at bonus checkpoints. I’ve always wondered how I could make the day longer!

[EurekaO] Canadian Regional Park Naming Ceremony and BUNS This Saturday

 Posted by at 9:31 pm  Quicknews  Comments Off on [EurekaO] Canadian Regional Park Naming Ceremony and BUNS This Saturday
Jul 122017
 
Hi all,

Saw this in the Courier today, of interest to Eureka, about the official naming ceremony for Woowookarung (the new Canadian Regional Park):

http://www.thecourier.com.au/story/4785367/regional-park-to-receive-its-name-next-week/

Also, the next BUNS event is on THIS SATURDAY at 11am, at Pioneer Park, off Gillies Street North heading towards the MCain Plant. Roch is setting the controls, and has promised to keep the courses interesting, without being, err, too interesting!!

A fortnight later on 29 July, I’ll set some controls on a new map I’ve put together featuring the numerous old nightcart laneways bounded by Sturt, Pleasant, Drummond and La Trobe Streets in Western Central Ballarat, plus the area around St Pats and Ballarat and Clarendon Colleges up to Victoria Park. I’m looking forward to exploring this very interesting old part of town.

For those setting future BUNS events, we’ve now got quite an extensive collection of good maps available to run events on. Additionally, following on from my little experiment with “Open Street Maps” as a basis for a BUNS map a few weeks back at Golden Point, and Mark’s use of OSM for his Brown Hill run last week, I’ve now found yet another great website, a UK one called Open Orienteering Map (http://oomap.co.uk). This uses the Open Street Maps features database, and basic Street O mapping symbols, to produce quite reasonable Street O maps anywhere in the world.

I’ll be trying this out for my BUNS event on July 29. Here’s what a typical Open Orienteering Map looks like. It’s not quite as well-finished as Roch’s fieldworked maps of course, but it’s still quite useable for a street-based BUNS run in simple terrain. This example took literally 30 seconds to make:

What’s my message here? Using this as a base, plus Google Maps and Google Street View to to explore in more detail and browse around the streets visually, it’s really, really easy to identify specific signposts, fences, power poles etc to put 20 checkpoint tapes on, then plot them on a map, all from the comfort of home. So, if anyone wants to have a go at setting a BUNS run, please let the Committee know. It takes no more than an hour to make a map and choose 20 control sites, and then it’s perhaps 1 – 2 hours on the day of the run to go around and stick the red-and-white tapes on your chosen sites. Don’t be discouraged from setting if you can’t commit to making a map or putting tapes out – other members will gladly do this on your behalf. We’d love to see some new faces having a go at setting courses for our BUNS runs!

Regards, Ian Chennell

[EurekaO] Child Protection Legislation

G’day Eurekans

A couple of conversations in other areas have caused me to properly consider our obligations under the new legislation and the attached document needs to be discussed widely and comprehensively by our Club.  We will certainly have it on the agenda for next Club Executive meeting likely to be towards end of this month.

 

Regards,

Mark Valentine

BUNS Event 27 May 2017 Delacombe

We explored some of Delacombe again last Saturday, using a different start point to give us a different perspective and create different route choices. A good number of people visited all the controls.

Are we improving our navigation and route choices or was it that Roch was in a kindly mood and made it easy for us????

Will the Lawfords be in a kind mood next Saturday (3rd June) at Canadian Lakes or will they provide a stern test? To find out, meet on Canadian Lakes Boulevard, near the lakes, ready for a 11.15am start. Bonus points go to anyone who brings a friend who hasn’t tried our BUNS series. Hope you’ll be there!

Results from last Saturday:

Judy 170 points 44.55

Peter 190 points 42.50

Jeanette ?points(we’ll give her 200 as a default option) 44.30

Mark 200 points 32.00

Steven & Lachlan 180 points 45.00

Good Afternoon All,

Every Tuesday afternoon between 17.30 to around 18.30 we will be getting together for a small social training event. Meeting at the eastern side of the Tree of Knowledge.

The aim of this is to provide an opportunity for some training and also to try and get some new members involved in this great sport while promoting the best Orienteering Club around, Eureka!

We will be doing small training events, which may include Foot-O training around the Fed Uni Mt Helen campus map, a lap or two of the perimeter track or other training type events based on recommendations from our members.

It’s free to come along and join in, so I hope to see some of you there for a bit of a social get together and a bit of training this afternoon!

Any questions don’t be afraid to contact me at below details, or look us up on facebook  www.facebook.com/fedunioclub

Seeing that Facebook and other areas say probably start area at Black Hill Swimming Pool I had better confirm that it is there rather than confuse you all by changing it.
