Cameraygal Festival Orienteering

Lane Cove's 2013 "Moving with the Flow" Cameraygal Event.         

For more than five years, Garingal Orienteers have run a Come And Try It orienteering event in conjunction with Lane Cove Council's annual local festival.

In 2013, we returned to our "Blackman Park" map of Lane Cove West, which includes the Lane Cove River shore between Epping Rd and Linley Point.

Garingal Orienteers invited everyone to have a GO Orienteering, finding your way on foot, using this map, around Blackman Park, along the foreshore of the gently flowing Lane Cove River, and out into Lane Cove West, exploring riverside-parks and reserves, on a warm springtime Sydney Sunday morning.

Orienteering is for all ages, male or female, fit or not-so-fit. The courses can be tried as a group or have a GO on your own. Four courses were there to try.  The Very Easy, very short course for the youngest children to go around with a parent, another (the Easy) a bit longer for older children or newer beginners, another of some length for those who are confident finding their way around (Short Moderate), and finally the longest course for experienced bush navigators to tackle (Long Moderate). 

Experienced Garingal Orienteers in orange-“ASK ME”-vests explained the sport to new-comers.

The special orienteering map had been prepared for each competitor to use with control sites already marked on the map, with a ‘clue’ sheet having a detailed description of each control feature needed to be found.

Time: Starts were anytime from 9:30 am until 11:30 am. Course closure was 12.30pm (when we packed up to go home)

Thanks to:
Organiser: Johnny Petersen
Course setter: Robert Herkes
(both being first-timers in these roles and doing excellent jobs)
