Bulletin 2 has been posted for the Sydney Sprint Weekend. Please read it carefully as it often contains separate instructions for NOL runners and for the non-elites.
Public transport is encouraged, and parking will be tight at most venues. Don't forget that Saturday night is the Mardi Gras parade so some CBD streets will be closed.
For the relay on Saturday morning, once the elites are done, the public relay (pre-entered) starts at 10.15am. Saturday Orienteering Series entrants and entry on the day starts are from 10.20am.

Newcastle duo Robert Vincent and Martin Quirke have taken out the O'Shea 2-Days carnival with a convincing win in the three-race pairs event on the Central Coast.
Rob and Martin were 18 minutes faster than Uringa siblings Lawrence and Georgia Jones as the fixture moved back to the Gwandalan area at the southern end of beautiful Lake Macquarie.
Central Coast couple Paul and Julia Prudhoe took out the short pairs by less than two minutes over brothers Steven (NC) and Kevin (GO) Roberts.
The highlight of the weekend, as usual, was the cake prizes - decorated with spearmint leaf lollies, as shown here by Karen Blatchford and Gayle Quantock, the women's runners up in the Long Pairs.
The three events were:
* a Saturday afternoon relay at Point Wolstoncroft
* a Saturday evening event at Summerland Point
* a Sunday morning Pairs Score event in Gwandalan
Results from all 3 events, and maps from the night event, can be found here.

One of the more recent initiatives to develop our sport has been the Women's Training Weekend in the Southern Highlands each March.
This year it's on March 14-15. It is aimed at females of all orienteering standards, but especially newcomers and those looking to make the transition from Easy courses to Moderate - just in time for the bush courses and State League events over the winter months.
Here's feedback from a rookie who attended in 2013: "Now I have got the bug to get going again thanks to your weekend help. And having the opportunity to be 'shadowed' at a real event was particularly useful to practise some of the lessons."
