Here’s an online game to help you learn your descriptions. Attached pdf for reference
In the great sport of orienteering, all moderate and hard courses use international symbols for control descriptions rather than English (or another language). See attached.
The link below will gives you some armchair orienteering opportunities thanks to Scottish Orienteering – in some of the puzzles, you will use international symbols.
The first Bush OY https://oq.orienteering.asn.au/orienteer-of-the-year event is being run by Boulder Bounders (the Warwick club). Details below. NOTE: Pre-enter and Pre-pay only by WEDNESDAY night. Note – if you would like to enter this event and have any difficulties registering through Eventor, let me know. You should pay member fees as TGS is a member of Queensland Orienteering.
Well done to those who participated in the OY at Gatton last Sunday, particularly Cas as this was his first OY event. And I will say, I am very impressed with the Schubert’s who managed to run Peak to Park prior to coming to Gatton.
