Organizer: Chris Ling (Event Director)
Well done to all those brave souls that ventured out on a very wet Sunday afternoon Photo-O. Participants including both our youngest and our more seasoned orienteers.
No-one managed to make it round all the controls this year, although Ben came close - just a careless error costing him full marks. There was also some suspect 'guessing' from the VICO treasurer - hopefully not a reflection of the club accounts!
Downtown Photo O. Using an OpenStreetMap of the Victoria Downtown area this 90min Score event will feature a clue sheet of photos depicting some feature visible at each control site marked on the map. Mass Start at 1pm. Clue sheets and pencils will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own just in case. The event boundaries are Simcoe Street to the south, Tyee Road to the west, Bay Street to the north and Cook street to the east. New this year are control sites in Vic West.
