Members,

 

I will be running a basic local training event on the Mt Beckworth map this Saturday (2nd October). 


Starts from 10.30-12.00. 

PLEASE EMAIL ME on dbrownridge@fastmail.fm that you intend to attend, and what time you would like to start, as there must be no more than 10 people starting together. If more than ten are expected at a time, I will reply and suggest a different time.  If you are running late on the day, please text me on 0418366210, so that maximum group limits are not exceeded.

There will be 2 courses, a long of approx. 5km, and a short approx. 3km.

Start will be at the pine plantation at the southern end of the map (Coutts Rd)


It is likely to be quite wet and slippery out there after the forecast rain, so please take care.

Feel free to invite any other regional Victorian orienteers who are able to attend within the current COVID travel restrictions.

 

Please scan in on arrival with the QR code, and maintain the usual COVID protocols at the training event.

 

Hope to see you there.

 

David Brownridge

Now that we Ballaraters are yet again allowed to undertake training exercises, I will be running a really basic local training event on the Nerrina map this Sunday (26th September).  Starts from 10.30-12.00.  PLEASE EMAIL ME ON wozzaw@bigpond.com THAT YOU ARE COMING AND WHAT TIME YOU WOULD LIKE TO START AS WE NEED TO PLAN TO NOT HAVE MORE THAN TEN PEOPLE TOGETHER.  If we are expecting more than ten at a time, I will write back to you and propose a different time.  If you are running late on the day, please text me on 0418 370 043, and we will work something out.

 

I will put out two courses, one of about 5 km in the rough gold mining and one of about 3.5 km avoiding most of the rough stuff.  The start will be on Glenisla Road, just out the back of Little Bendigo, near the south eastern corner of the map.  Please feel free to invite any other Free Victorian orienteers as well.

[EurekaO] 2021-2022 2nd Draft of Eureka Orienteers Events

Hi
Just out of lockdown tonight! Yeh!
So here is something to get you organised for the end of this year and into 2022. I have heard from several you, but not from others. So here is the latest plan – earthquakes and all. Please let Blake know what you can help out with on the spreadsheet. Once I have a list of venues from Gary for the end of 2021 and summer 2022, I’ll paste them in.
Sounds like we can go up to John Chellew’s Butterfly Gully course this weekend. There do not seem to be any Bendigo events for the next few Saturdays – but watch Eventor for changes. So hope the weather warms up and you take the chance to get out!
Why not try one of Ian’s MapRun events around Ballarat – you can see he has put quite a lot of them up on the Eureka webpage.
Cheers Blake _______________________________________________ allmembers mailing list allmembers@eurekaorienteers.asn.au eurekaorienteers.asn.au/mailman/listinfo/allmembers_eurekaorienteers.asn.au

All,

 

John Chellew has kindly put out a training course for anyone who is interested on the Butterfly Gully map, northwest of Daylesford.  The attached pdf has a locality plan to get you to the start and the map itself for you to print.  The controls are marked with a small kite, and will be out for the next month or so.

 

I have copied John on this email, and he can be contacted on that email address with any questions or comments.

 

Thank you very much, John!

 

Regards,

 

Warwick.

[EurekaO] Eureka Events Plan for 2021-2022

 Posted by at 11:06 am  Quicknews  Comments Off on [EurekaO] Eureka Events Plan for 2021-2022
Sep 052021
 
Hi everyone


Seems like spring has sprung! The wattles are really starting to show the yellow that means the weather has got to start warming up!  But with the lockdown still in place until mid-September or later, we have time to plan what might be our Eureka involvement in the end of this year and into 2022. Taking into consideration that we will be pretty heavily involved in the 2022 Aus Champs in Central Victoria, I’ve taken this opportunity to bring you into the loop of our potential schedule for 2022. 

WE NEED DECISIONS THIS WEEK ON THE EVENTS UP TO JUNE 2022 (AT A MINIMUM) SO PLEASE MAKE YOUR PLANS NOW TO HELP RUN EVENTS IN 2022. 

Laurie Niven will call a ZOOM meeting this Friday 10th September at which she needs our events in Parks areas up until at least June. I suggest Ian C organises a ZOOM meeting this week to confirm our 2022 Events – course setters, organisers and advisors for 2022.

31st October 2021 – Woowookarung North – 5 courses set by Toby, controlled by Blake – maps printed; involves mtbo and a Ballarat local series event – entries all in Eventor already and will go ahead starting from Pax Hill Scout Camp IF the lockdown allows Melbourne people to ride/run. Permission from Parks achieved.  

BikeO-75 Series: 5 events over Jan, Feb, Mar 2022 – with no EU commitment.

Vic MTBO Series: March or early April:  Creswick Forest / Mt Doran / Woowookarung South – single middle/long distance with 5 courses.

2022 Vic MTBO Champs: 14-15 May: Nerrina – 3 events in 2 days – Sprint and Middle on Saturday, Long on Sunday – shared with BK and YV – EU to do the Finish on all three events (Brown Hill oval and Little Bendigo Primary School) and possibly set either sprint, middle, long courses.

Summer Park/Street Series in Ballarat: Many maps to choose from for either foot or mtbo courses; low organisation – 3 or 4 courses, enter on eventor or on the day

2022 Autumn Vic Series:  Enfield event (cancelled on 29th August) – Roch has 5 courses set so need a date and permit update from DELWP; better to have this in Autumn rather than August as we have the Aus Champs in Sept/Oct.

Do EU run any Sprint events or monthly low key events (2 or 3 from same location over a month) during this Summer and early Autumn in Ballarat?

Lead up events to the Aus Champs: Does EU want to run event in July/August leading up to the carnival – like Gary’s Nerrina South event (cancelled from July this year) or others in a Ballarat Winter Series??

2022 Aus Champs:  Responsibilities so far in the  carnival plan – Warwick W (Event Organiser for Carnival); Blake (Event Advisor for Vic Middle Distance), Roch (Map Maker for Aus School Sprint), Chris Norwood (Event Advisor for Aus Middle Distance); EU to setup the start/finish/results for Australian Short Event on 24th Sept Saturday pm in Daylesford

2022 Vic Teachers Games – Mark and Sam V to set aMAZEing courses for 18th September in Geelong Streets and Parks as part of large 25th Anniversary event.

Cheers and please think ahead over the next few days – EU needs your help
Blake
