15 July 2018 - HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES #4

A very cold start to the day – heavy frosts but luckily no wind. Gloves were needed to put out controls but all was ready for Lyn’s navigation (compass) skills activity. She had an enthusiastic group armed with map and compass head off into the bush and later try a course on their own to put their new skills to use.

There was a great turnout (about 70 participants) who enjoyed a great Winter's day.

For the full report and results see the Results page.

15 April 2018 - SHOO HAS SUCCESSFUL OUTING AT METRO LEAGUE 2

SHOO had a great day at MetrO League #2 for 2018. This was a great event at Mitchell Park - one of the best maps in the Sydney area. The bush was relatively clear and the courses very well planned with winning times in the required 35 minute range.

Our Division 3, 4 and 5 teams all had a win. Unfortunately the Div 1 team was short a runner and even though David Meyer had a great run they were unable to get up.

4 March 2018 - SHOO HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES STARTS

Our first event of the series was held in conjunction with the Women's Nav Skills Weekend. The Piggery map at Belanglo State Forest was the venue for a highly successful event. A record 80 competitors turned out - including 30 women taking part in the Nav Weekend. It was great to see a number of people trying bush orienteering for the first time.

This event was planned (set) by the ONSW scholar, Konsta and organised by Peter Meyer (our series coordinator). There were many compliments for the courses.

The results are available in PDF format.

The information flyer outlines the events for this year - all found around the Southern Highlands.

10 December 2017 - SHOO PRESENTATION AND CHRISTMAS PARTY

This year our end year gathering was held at the home of Chippy and Sue Le Carpentier in beautiful Gerringong.

Chippy fed us with great seafood as well as the offerings brought along by those attending, including Pete's Christmas pud and Stephan's slice. A lovely time was had by all enjoying the feast.

Lyn made the presentation of awards to our orienteer of the year winners - a clean sweep to the Sheddens. Angus took out the Golden SHOO, Ruth the lady SHOO and Rory the junior SHOO. Our Division 3 MetrO team won their division (Stephan and Ruth along with IKO members). The Presidents award went to Sandra Stewart. This year the Persistence award went to Neville.

Another very hot evening for a run around Picton Botanic Gardens on the Antill View map. This was Natt and Kristie Carroll's first attempt at setting courses and by all reports did a marvellous job.

7 Jan 2017 - SHOO SUMMER SATURDAYS START

This year's Summer Saturdays got off to a flying start with 37 starters for a run around the Harrington Park West map. Neville tried a new area to start from beside the lake in the shade (which was appreciated). Locals conspired to make life difficult but Neville overcame new fences and flooded walkways to give us a great event.

The results and Neville's report can be found in the linked PDF file. Results and future events can be found on Eventor.
