This will be a retro street orienteering event and SI timing will only be used to record start / finish time. There will be no controls or markers out. The competitor's job will be to navigate round the course finding the answers to a series of questions. The answers will be found at the centre of each control circle ‐ navigate there and you will find the answers. We will provide the map and question sheet ‐ you need to provide the writing implement ....... or have an extremely good memory!!!
The start and finish will be located by the bandstand in Dock Park.
