Please park in designated parking bays in nearby streets, not on the pavement – you may need to walk a short way.
19.00 until 20.00 or so.
All welcome – members or not – please bring friends who haven’t orienteered before
Start and finish are both at the meeting point.
Squirrel 1.9km – very easy, for beginners
Rabbit 4.3km – medium, for adults
Deer 6.3km – longer, with hills, for keenies
Control flags are 15cm kites – with “pin” punches.
1:5,000 (Squirrel), 1:7,500 (Rabbit), or 1:10,000 (Deer) ISSOM. Downloaded from Open Orienteering Maps, so no contours (but lots on the ground!), and no walk or fight forest mapped. Some map corrections, but the map is still rather inaccurate in the forested areas. Laser printed on Pertex waterproof paper (backs of old Luxembourg City Race maps).
Half residential urban streets, half woodland with many paths that are steep and muddy in places. “Cross” training shoes optimal.
Please take great care to avoid all moving cars, bikes and buses, especially on the more main roads. Children under 12 should be with an adult. You take part entirely at your own risk.
