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.

The event this Sunday is at UQ Gatton. It is Orienteering Queensland’s first OY event for the year.
Queensland conducts an annual Orienteer of the Year (OY) competition for members with nine to eleven designated events held during the year where competitors can gain points from their performances, with their best five results counting towards an overall total. These events aim to be conducted to a high technical standard and are generally held on maps that offer competitive challenges. A handicap system operates to establish the best results across all courses, ages and sex. There is a formula which has weighting for all of these factors, which is applied to a competitor’s time to give them points out of a possible 200, depending on how far behind the winner they are. Competitors can choose to do any course they wish to depending on their level of fitness and ability at the time of the event.
If you are happy to travel to Gatton, it is a great event. There will be a lot more competitors and the entry fee is slightly higher. OY events must always be pre-entered. If you plan on attending, you will need to create an Eventor account and register. Year 7 boys should enter the Easy or Very Easy course. Older boys who don’t have experience should enter Moderate.
