Start Time(s):

Hutt Valley
Hutt Valley park/sprint seamless mapping
Lower Hutt
Meet at the SW corner of the HW Shortt Rec ground. Head south past the E/B shopping centre, right into Karamu St, and right at the beach. Bus 83 (Courtney Pl 8:45, Queensgate 9:18) will get you there just a tad late, that's fine. The first Sunday ferry to Days Bay is too late but a good option for return to Wgtn, there are 6 afternoon sailings.

Event description

For those not at the Southern Orienteering Weekend, visit a new map at Eastbourne. Its an urban map but the wide beach holds interesting point features that will challenge your compass skills (how often do you practise them??) And the soft terrain is more relevant than running round the block! A tiny bit of sand-dune terrain too. Depending on who comes, we might get as far as the beach boulders by the bus barn.

Completely DIY event, see website above for U-Max style. Print your own maps, there are two: www.mapsport.co.nz/hvoc/daysb21umaxnth.pdf, and www.mapsport.co.nz/hvoc/daysb21umaxsth.pdf.  Post-event café suggestions, both in Rimu St: Hive or directly opposite, Vostragusto. Or bring togs. Or bring bikes and ride to Pencarrow.
