Mapping Complete

Its a little later than usual for an orienteering event but mapping has just wrapped up for the Urban Enduro. When you are working on an uber project, like the City of Wellington map, it is just hard to know when to stop. Every hour of fieldwork discovers great new challenges to add to the mix. In my own city I have found places that I never knew existed. Alleyways that lead to nowhere. Underpasses that just keep on going. I have found the resting spots of many of the cities homeless and places that even they haven't found yet.

The courses are coming together well.  Nick Hann and Tim Robertson know what they are doing when it comes to the creative expression of urban orienteering.

The entries are slow. I guess with something new everyone is always a little nervous, and the Urban Enduro isn't for everyone. It is definitely a soup best fed to the orienteering connoisseur. That is fine by us. A test run perhaps for bigger things to come, a more intimate event with a smaller group to share the experience, true geek out orienteering sessions for the chosen few. Come and join us, but only if you are really keen!
