Summer 75 MTBO at Silvan this Saturday

Thursday, 3 March 2016


The final Summer 75 MTBO Series event is on this Saturday, 5 March, at Silvan. We are back with electronic timing this week so no need for manual addition, subtraction, and time calculations – your results and times will be on display as soon as you finish.

The map takes in part of The Dandenong Ranges National Park and of course there are some hills out there, but our course setter, Alex Randall, has ensured that about half of the controls can be reached without much climbing. I was riding out there yesterday, and it is truely magnificent riding the trails and tracks amongst the huge gum tree forest. The air is fantastic. The course will also be utilising some of the single tracks that have been developed in the Silvan area over recent years.

Entry fees are $10 for Orienteering Victoria members ($5 Juniors), $15 for non members ($8 Juniors). Register and get set up before 5.45 pm on the day. Starts are from 6pm. Rider’s briefing at 5.50pm. Loan mapboards available.

Assembly is at Eagles Nest Picnic Ground. Follow "O" signs W along Stoneyford Rd from Monbulk Rd, past the entrance to Silvan Reservoir, straight on to Silvan Rd (Olinda Creek Rd on right), then next right into Eagles Nest Rd. Park on the left of the road. Melway Reference: 122 D2.
BBQ available after the event with sausages, cheese toasties and soft drinks available.

Organised by: No organising club for this event – Course setter, Alex Randall; Organiser, Peter Cusworth.
HELP NEEDED. We will need some helpers particularly with both the BBQ and collecting a few controls after the event. If you can assist, please email Peter or let him know on the day.
All proceeds from this event will go to the MTBO fund to assist our Victorian representative riders, same as with the proceeds from the BBQ.



Smartplay is a sports safety and injury prevention program. Their website has tips to reduce the risk of injury and now has a section specific to orienteering!
