Milson Island. January 2017 - Over 40 enthusiastic orienteers visited Milsons Island last Saturday the 21st. Starting with a short ferry trip from the mainland to the island.
Tony Hill went the self-propelled way of canoeing across the strait.
Then the fun began. Tennis anyone, basketball, large chess games, BBQs and swimming pool. However the main event was the orienteering over the island with the coarse been set by Atte. Wonderful rock formations and with many buildings making challenging courses. In fact there were 3 courses easy, medium and hard. No times were recorded, no SI, just trust as it was a friendly banter. After the runs everyone relaxed enjoying a swim, tennis etc.
A place for everyone to go to, many expressed interest to stay longer but 4pm soon arrived so it was time depart.
Thanks to all participants for a great day out.
