Little Grove Scatter event 8th November

The newly-formed Albany & Denmark Hinterland Orienteering Club (ADHOC) held their inaugural public event last Saturday in Little Grove. A keen group of participants gathered at the Primary School, all age-groups were represented, from babies in prams to dogs on leads to groups of teenagers, couples, families and even a few runners.

There were three courses of different lengths to choose from, with checkpoints scattered around the suburb and marked on a customised orienteering map. It was an afternoon walk with an adventurous twist – even the Little Grove residents found themselves in unfamiliar territory as they went off the beaten track hunting for checkpoints. Everybody completed their course and everybody had fun. There was even a short obstacle course for the under-6’s, with an Australian animal theme and a prize for finishers.

The Bowles family won the short course, ahead of Julian and Isabelle Blogg in second, and Jason and Jonas Young in third. On the medium course, Jen Graham-Taylor came in just ahead of Joanne and John Cole in second, and Tamara Simmons’ group in third. Nobody took on the long course this week.

Next event: Albany Primary School 22/11/14

The next ADHOC event will be a different style of orienteering called sprint orienteering. But don't let the name put you off - sprinting is definitely not required and would probably be a bad idea when you are trying to navigate! The course will be about 3km long and on a very detailed map of Albany Primary and Albany Senior High School.
