What a perfect day to go orienteering. It is a shame that there is a chance that this may be the last time we use this map since a large chunk has been sold off and the new owner doesn't want us in there...
There were amazing views over the Barossa Valley, even to the point where I overshot #8 because i was enjoying the view and ignoring the fact i was meant to be looking for a control. There were a couple of issues with the course, #14 was no where to be found by many (until Greg managed to find it ~170m from the control circle) and a couple of other controls on incorrect features inside the circle (#4 and #9) but I didn't let any of that get in my way of having a great time. The Tanunda Creek was flowing nicely and was fun to cross a couple of times during the course (and i didn't get my feet wet so probably lost time as a result). I struggled in the circle on a couple of controls hunting for the right rock, but got there in the end. I even managed to be the first to a couple of controls late in the course as Simon stopped at the missing #14 and didn't catch me up until 20-21 where we just jogged and chatted for the rest of the course. What a great day of O.
