Another frantic night of orienteering hopefully has everyone much better aquainted with Belmont Park! The weather threatened all day but stayed dry at least if a little soggy underfoot.
The small park lends itself to fast and furious dashes from one end to another and hopefully everyone found parts they hadn't been before, mostly the areas covered in nettles...
Thanks to everyone for helping, to Alan for maps, Bill for vital IT support, Davey fot the starts and the entire Smith family who were roped into helping in some form or another (including Rolo, who, along with Declan, collected controls).
A whole weekend of Orienteering in the Mournes this weekend before a trip to Bangor next Wednesday!
Thanks all for coming and hope you enjoyed it!

InstructionsRegistrations as usual from 18:30 and starts from 19:00. Last start will be 20:00 and course closes by 20:30.
The two courses are currently Long- 3.5Km and short 1.5Km.
Although most of the park is fairly open full leg cover is still advised, especially on the long course.
The pre entry facility is a great help to organisers so please continue to use it and if you havent used it yet give it a try!
I have asked for sunshine but was told they couldnt guarantee it!
DirectionsBelmont Park is just off the A55 outer ring road on the outskirts of Belfast. Registration is at the CIYMS car park, at the Circular Rd/Cairnburn Rd junction. There are 2 car parks so make sure you're heading to the right one. Also note that you can't access Cairnburn Rd directly from the A55 outer ring road.
During your course, you will have to cross the A55 dual carriageway at least once. You MUST use one of the bridges - do not try to cross 4 lanes of traffic at road level!!
