Event 12: Orangefield Park
|Date||Wed 17th Aug|

|Planner||David Wilson (e-mail)|
Another 2 great courses by our planner David made for an interesting nights orienteering. Throw in a few wasps and nettles stings and some really fast times, it's hard to believe two runners, Paddy and Billy tied on 19.56. Billy coming second only because of his surname. Bad luck there Billy.
One visitor from Sweden travelled up from Dublin just to attend the event which shows how much of a success our wee nights are.
Sadly a few competitors evenings were ruined by the kind of mindless idiots that I'm sure would be unable to read this post (one control smashed and no doubt thrown away). Unfortunately incidents like this can jeopardise future events.
My thanks to all who helped me out again tonight and on all my previous events.
Next week we are off to Castlewellan.
See you then.
InstructionsWe are back in Belfast for WEE 12, at Orangefield and Greenville Parks. The parkland is flat and fast, with small but interesting bits of woodland. The long course is 3.4km and the short 2.1km. The undergrowth in some parts of the woodland is seasonally high, so full leg cover is recommended. Registration will be open from 6.30pm, with starts from 6.30 - 7.30. As usual, all are most welcome.
DirectionsAt the Castlereagh/Ballygowan road junction on the Outer Ring Road take Castlereagh Rd. towards Belfast. Take 3rd turning on the right, Houston Pk.,signed to Grosvenor High School. Park at the end of this road or drive in and use the car park.
