Summer Street Series Warm Up - Lambton - Wed 10 Oct

A big thank you to the volunteers who set and vetted the Course, set up and packed up the Event - great work Viola and your faithful Team.
The conditions weren't ideal.  The brave starters had a 5:15pm mass start. A few others punch started in between the heavy showers.  There were no starters for the 5:45pm mass start so the organisers had an early night. There were a few eager first-timers - hope the weather hasn't dampened your enthusiasm.

P Cards and SI Sticks will also be available for sale.

Important Note: Newcastle Orienteering recommends that all competitors wear bright clothing or reflective gear throughout the season to enable drivers to see you especially if you are running near dusk. Please also take care when crossing roads and use recommended crossing points on busy roads. We also wish to remind competitors that listening to an ipod (or similar) while on course can be a distraction that may cause you to not hear an emergency warning or similar and as such are not allowed during these events for your safety.
