Report on Radio Combo Event 7 May 2022

A Radio “Combo” event was run in conjunction with the Saturday afternoon Orienteering event at Endeavour Greens on 7 May 2022. Unforunately the weather was rather poor but despite that we had eight people competing.

Five 2m Fox-Or transmitters were placed in bush or park areas on the map and competitors had to locate these once they had reached the large red circles on the map. A copy of the map is below with small blue dots indicating approximate transmitter locations. A 75-minute time limit was set with 3 points per minute late penalty. The event was run using MapRun and no flags were set with the Fox-Ors.

Congratulations to Bruce Paterson who got all 20 orienteering controls and 5 Fox-Ors in the time, achieving a perfect score of 120 points. Newcomer Christopher Hall also did very well, getting all five Fox-Ors and all but three of the orienteering controls. Chris also managed his time very well, returning 30 seconds before the 75-minute deadline. Monica Lo Presti came in third with a respectable 91 points. Jack Bramham was feeling a bit unwell following a flu vaccination the previous day but still went out to get one of the radio controls after spending some time getting MapRun set up on a new phone. Scores are copied below (also available on MapRun “Leader Board”):

Woodlands Park event

On Sunday 26 May 2013 Woodlands Historic Park was the venue for another exciting RadiO event.

7 competitors fought it out for top positions in the RadiO long and short courses, with Ian Dodd snaffling the lead over Bruce Paterson   by 6 minutes. Thanks to Ewen who made time in a busy day to do the course.   Peter and Hamish made a good run around the course and returned before their   90 minutes was up. Tim did some coaching for BK, then raced around to collect   an impressive 150 points in under an hour. Dennis went out to collect all 6   foxOrs and returned in good time having found them all.

Welcome also to newbies Ian and Jenny and her father, who all set out to find 2 foxOrs after their orienteering course and found them without any difficulty. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves!

Competitors had asked course-setter Suzanne O’Callaghan to set a more challenging foxOr course, so she did them a favour and tested   their sniffing skills with some interesting hidey holes – horizontal and low in   a burnt out tree stump in the middle of a new growth eucalypt forest, inside a hollow tree, and behind a broken concrete remnant of an old weir.

Many thanks to Bruce Paterson, who set up the software for   instant course results and manned the start while Suzanne was still out   finding her interesting hidey holes. And to Bruce and Peter who collected   controls.
