Our Hills district expansion program - the Western Sydney Summer Series - swings into action on Monday at Baulkham Hills.
WHO are our hosts for the afternoon, at Col Sutton Park, Baulkham Hills Road. Starts are any time from 4.30-6.30pm. The format is the same as for the SSS - you have 45 minutes to get to as many of the 30 controls as you can.
We have already generated some hits in the local papers. Newcomers to orienteering get free entry to a subsequent event in the series.
And a reminder that our Southern SSS resumes on Sunday week at Sandringham, with starts from 4-6pm.

Our prioneering Saturday morning series for school students begins its second season this weekend (October 18).
Cherrybrook Technology High School is the venue. Pre-entry is open for weeks 1-3 at the moment and offers discounted rates.
While some schools include the series as part of their Saturday morning sport offering, students are also welcome to attend independently of their school.
Newcomers are encouraged to come along and try out the sport by attending any of the events. You may attend casually and only enter the events that fit in with the family schedule.
Years 5-6 have a mass start at 9am and 45 minutes in which to get to as many of the 20 checkpoints as they can in any order they like. Younger students are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Years 7-12 do a 'line' course, setting off at 1-minute intervals from 9.30am and visiting the controls in a set order.
In week 3 we have something special planned at Callan Park, Rozelle.

Who will take out the major awards in 2014?
Who will win a wombie (for an embarrassing orienteering moment)?
The evening will run from 6.30-9.30pm, allowing attendees from the closer regional clubs enough time to get home.
See the invitation for more details and how to book.
