Course Planner Jim Forbes gets world recognition

  The story below is taken from the ONSW website home page on Sunday 24th May.  Congratulations to our own member Jim Forbes who refined his courses for the NOL events at Hill End in March 2019 under the careful eye of Controller Andrew Lumsden. 

For the full story on the World-of-O website, go to http://news.worldofo.com/2020/05/21/route-to-o-season-2020-day-68/Congrats Jim and Andrew!

At the World-of-O website you can draw in your own route choice, or look at the route-map for the top 6 runners that day March last year.  Also, you can see the 'density map' with the compilation of all runners routes superimposed to see that the pattern covers every direction possible.  Wow!  What a leg.



...  Hill End leg makes it onto world stage       Friday 22nd May 2020

The World of O website is a veritable "O bible" and has been posting a route choice poser each day of the covid-19 lockdown.

Today it's a leg from the 2019 NOL Relay at Hill End, with kudos going to Garingal's Jim Forbes (setter) and Big Foot's Andrew Lumsden (controller).

You can view the conundrum, work out your tactics, draw your route (and offer an explanation), then look at the runners routes.

Jim also had the job of setting the Middle Distance courses for all the non-elites on the same day!

Australia is on the other side of the globe to all the heavyweights of orienteering, so it's nice when we get recognised by the Europeans.

Well done Jim and Andrew.

Many orienteers will have fond memories of Hill End's debut for the 2017 Australian Championships Carnival, and the 2019 NOL weekend was a great follow-up.
