Bellbird Dell RadiO

Saturday 20th October, 2012


Radi-O Event. Bellbird Dell, Terrara Road. Wantirna.

It was a pleasant day for a run or quiet stroll through the parklands, sniffer in hand.

5 Fox-Or Txs were deployed in the Bellbird Dell parklands. �3 were secreted in the Southern sector relatively close to the start. �The remaining 2 were positioned further North.

8 people participated despite the fact that many (including the course setter) were somewhat sleep deprived following the previous evening�s fox hunt exploits.
Lack of sleep however did not discourage Bruce and Ewen. They covered substantial distances to collect 17 and 12 Orienteering controls respectively, in addition to the 5 FoxOrs.

Newcomers Dennis M (from the UK) and Ian J (a regular orienteer) also tried their hand at FoxOr-ing.

Not having had enough exercise for the day, Ewen then escorted the Stuchbery family (also newcomers to RadiO) around the 3 southern Txs.

Regular RadiO participant, Chalky, completed a regular Street-O course then collected the two northern-most Txs.
