Event description

Two choices on the one A4, download from www.mapsport.co.nz/hvoc/sstrm11stpatsumax.pdf.  Planting along the stream through St Pats farm is growing well, with new tracks. Would lend itself to compass practice across the farmland. (How often do we muck up through poor bearings???) We haven't sought permission from the college so don't put ribbons among the buildings, but it would be OK to run through.  Alternatively (harder) there's a narrow strip of  bush with a network of tracks over the river and highway (comfortable culvert to use). This also gives access to steep tracks in Keith George Park, there's a nice loop shown.

U-Max is a DIY orienteering format, see website above for the style.  Print your own map prior from the website, if you haven't got a printer come anyway and ask someone for their spare. Bring pen and minigrip bag. Michael won't be there with markers, so everyone come with a few distinctive items to put out.
