Gradings for the 2017 Final
Even if you haven't qualified for the Final of the Park series you are still welcome to come and have a run.

Location: Blue Gum Hills Regionial Park, Minmi

MapBlue Gum Hills Regional Park 1:5000, 2 metre contours.

Start times: Starts between 5pm - 6:30pm

Course Closure: 7:10pm. (Finish after 7:10pm and you risk being disqualified for failing to finish the course in the allowed time.)

This closure time is to enable the setter to collect controls before it gets dark.  So please, please choose your start time so that you complete your chosen course by 7:10pm

Setter: Malcolm Roberts & Carolyn Matthews

Course: Long (~5km) and Short (~2.5km). These are length via logical route choice around out of bounds areas. Competitors should choose a course that matches their ability and allows them to finish by course closure time.

Directions: Park in the main car park in Blue Gum Hills Regional Park or if this is full there is additional parking outside near the cemetery. Please enter the park through the main gates though, otherwise you will be passing through the competition area.

Facilities:  Toilets but no drinking water.


  • Short presentation at 7:15pm. It has to be short because we need to be out of the park by 7:30pm
  • Please be careful as there are a couple of tricky downhills on the long course
  • For the controls in the maze remember that there is an enlarged version of the maze on the map.
  • Note that the scale is 1:5000
  • Bring insect repellent to protect from mosquitoes.
  • SI: this is a Sport Ident (SI) event, there is an SI unit attached to each control, so you will need to bring your SI stick or P-card. There are less than 20 controls on the short course, so people that only own a P-card will be able to use that if they run the short course. For the long course, they will need to hire or purchase an SI stick for this event.
