On the 24thof February 2019 Setanta Orienteers are hosting a Leinster League in Ballyward forest. Ballyward is a medium sized very runnable wood with a great mix of linear and point features, and without one single bramble. The map has been recently updated by Pat Healy. Some felling has taken place recently but it shouldn’t interfere with the courses. It will still be very runnable even with some felling. 

 

Course details are;-Brown 7.3km 180m climb 19 controlsBlue 5.8km 130m climb 15 controlsGreen 5.0km 120m climb 15 controlsLight Green 3.9km 110m climb 10 controlsRed 3.8km 110m climb 11 controlsOrange 2.9km 95m climb 10 controlsYellow 2.5km 70m climb 9 controls

None of the courses are buggy friendly

Maps will be printed on waterproof paper, are A4 in size with 1:10,000 scale and 5m contour interval. Start time between 11:00am and 1:00pm with courses closing at 3:00pm.

Sportident timing will be used. For those without an SI card, the cost of hiring a card is €2 with a charge of €40 if it is lost by the competitor (so don’t lose it).

Cost of entry is as follows;-IOA club members: Senior €8, Junior/Student/OAP/Unwaged €5, Family (two seniors max.) €20Non IOA club members: Senior €10, Junior/Student/OAP/Unwaged €7, Family (two seniors max.) €25[Non IOA member surcharge allows, for insurance purposes, that the competitor is a member of the IOA for the duration of the event]The event is at grid ref O 041 147 and will be signposted from Manor Kilbride.

Google DirectionsImportant note: Parking will be along the forest roads. The laneway into the forest is over 400m long and is a single track. Therefore, all cars must be in the forest on or before 12:30pm. No car can leave the wood until after 12:30pm. Please obey the parking officials. Your co-operation with this necessary arrangement is greatly appreciated. If any competitor needs to leave earlier than 12:30 some parking places may be accommodated. Please only request this if you need to. Ballyward isn’t the easiest place to manage traffic so please be patient with us. 

Looking forward to it.

Thanks for a very nice event in Ballyward, lucky it wasn\'t on last Sunday!
I meant to ask, where were the maps printed? I thought the quality was very good and while the paper was a bit \'plasticky\' it folded fine and there was no flaking off of colour on the fold lines. I remember having maps printed on plastic some years ago in France that were a bit of a nuisance to fold as needed.
