James’ Fort, Kinsale
The James’ Fort map was updated last year and now complies with the International Specification for Sprint Orienteering Maps (ISSOM). Sprint orienteering is all about rapid decision making and the compact nature of this open area will no doubt have you zigzagging around the historic fort. With the Dock beach as part of the map it provides an ideal spot for a post run cool down with a paddle in the water or a relaxing picnic. So why not come prepared and make the most of the long bright evening.
Hollywood Orienteering and Barbecue
Orienteering start times 18:00 to 19:30. Courses close at 20:30.
Don has planned two courses:
Adventure – 3 km fairly easy course with some sections in the forest. There will be a 2.5 km version of this course suitable for buggies.
Score – get as many controls as possible in 50 minutes. Score 10 points per control, penalty 10 points per minute or part minute over 50 mins. No bonus for getting to all the controls but it should be possible…
We will have our usual near-midsummer barbeque at Tutty’s pub after the orienteering, though unusually the forecast is good!
You can just arrive and register on the evening, but it makes things much easier for the organisers if you pre-register to enter HERE.
Please let us know in advance if you are bringing a group.
