Post-AGM Treas-O-re Hunt 8/12/19 Results

Thanks to Dave Kirk for spending a lot of time tramping round Duthie Park and Ferryhill noting down numbers and details on various objects for us to collect on today’s Treas-O-re Hunt. (Presumably he must have worn his best puffa jacket so as not to look too dodgy as no reports in the P&J about suspect looking characters spotted in the area staring intently at burglar alarms.)

Other than Start and Finish no controls out but instead a list of questions related to controls on the map with multiple choice answers which we had to mark with a pin. Only one injury reported and that was with the non-pointy end apparently. (?!)

David   Did the course quietly while everyone else was in the cafe - result unknown.

Duthie Park only (15 points up for grabs)
Samantha 15 points  No penalties   31.18 minutes Total 15
All questions correctly answered so today's ultimate winner! 

I have a good number of maps and question sheets if anyone else
fancies having a run round the course at a time that suits them
as a pre-Christmas blast. Let me know and I can post them out
or arrange collection - dkirk006@btinternet.com.

If you can’t make any of these events or prefer to avoid others for the time being, you can join the Mobile O revolution  and download the MapRun app and have a go at some local courses using your phone to time yourself and even navigate with. Visit our MapRun page for instructions and a list of maps.
Or do one of our Temporary Orienteering Courses if we’ve got one out at the moment – see the TOC post for info.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
