Some maps

It has been great seeing the action on facebook, and talking to a few people who have been down at the NZOF camps over the last couple of weeks, what a fantastic opportunity for our up and coming stars to train with the likes of Matt Ogden and Nick Hann. Kudos to all who helped out and made these opportunities happen. Over the next few years we really need more keen parents and people who like working with young people to step up to the mark, this is a really big talented generation of young orienteers that we can help along the way.

Both the Craigeburn and Central Otago have some really magnificent areas with complex detail. Maps like Kura Tawhiti, Acheron, Bannockburn  and Naseby. Another highlight was running on new maps made by Fraser Mills in Wanaka. Wanaka schools is a good quality sprint maps, and Hikuwai on the banks of the Clutha near Albert Town is a maze of Manuka. Both areas have huge potential to be extended over time.

I will be after some contributions from some of gang that were there...
