Summer Street Series Warm Up

Newcastle Summer Street Series is about to start again with the Warm Up Event on Wed 4th October. The warm up event will be a 45 minute score course.
Map/Location: Kotara
Setter: Clare Williams
Organiser: Samantha Howe
Start: Nesbitt Park, Casey Ave, Kotara
Parking: Casey Ave and surrounding streets.
Facilities: none
Start times: Mass Starts at 5:15pm and 5:45pm (with 2 minutes planning time before the start)
Just for the warmup: We will not be using electronic timing for the warm up event (due to MTBO events on simultaneously elsewhere who need to use it). You will be told your time as you finish and need to write it down on your results. Also, all competitors will do their own marking for the warm up event (answer sheets will be provided for marking). Results for the warm up do not count towards the Street Series.

For the other events in the street series: We will be using electronic timing which will mean more accurate times and scores, less work for volunteers and fast results publication for competitors. If you have your own SI stick or P Card then please bring it along to all street events, otherwise you can hire a P Card or SI Stick at each event for just $2. P Cards and SI Sticks will also be available for sale.

Important Note: Newcastle Orienteering recommends that all competitors wear bright clothing or reflective gear throughout the season to enable drivers to see you especially if you are running near dusk. Please also take care when crossing roads and use recommended crossing points on busy roads. We also wish to remind competitors that listening to an ipod (or similar) while on course can be a distraction that may cause you to not hear an emergency warning or similar and as such are not allowed during these events for your safety.
