Come & Try Orienteering (Plus a quick Navigation lesson)
Orienteering – Sunday, 17 June: 2pm – 5pm
lower car park at base of Towers Hill – Blackjack Rd (look for our tent + flag)
2 group Start times
Group 1- 2pm – 3:30pm
Group 2- 3:30pm – 5:00pm
- A challenging new adventure awaits as you navigate your way on foot from point to point across the diverse terrain surrounding Towers Hill, relying solely on your new found map and compass reading skills to take you around the course and find checkpoints.
Quick lesson with us before we give you a crash course in Navigation ahead of the Nav Challenge.
No need to Run, a steady power walk is a great way to ensure you don’t mess up your Nav
You can head off in a small group of between 2 – 6 people…best you let everyone in your group be a part of the action though maybe swapping turns to be lead navigator at each Checkpoint.
If you have had a go at Towers Rush event in the past this will be a great way to learn some more skills for the next Towers Rush and you may even feel more confident to try some off road compass navigation events like at Mingella Saturday next week (23 June) via TTOC before Sundays (24th June) Adventurethon at Big Bend…what a great weekend!
It may even inspire you to try an expedition style adventure race one day! if nothing else its just a great skill to have.
