40 glorious years of orienteering in Centennial Park, Sydney

The Metroleague, Junior League and Come and Try It event at Centennial Park on Sunday was a big event but not just because of the numbers of orienteers out enjoying the sunshine. This past weekend marked 40 years of orienteering in Centennial Park. Dave Lotty, who has mapped all the 14 editions of the map, was on hand to show people the metamorphosis from simple black and white map to the sophisticated 6 colour map we use today.
Uringa Orienteers celebrated with a little champagne, and a fabulous cake which came complete with replica map in icing, created by President Linda Sesta's sister-in-law, Rose, and enthusiastically sliced into by the growing Uringa junior contingent.
As part of our continuing partnership with Centennial Parklands, Linda and Barbara Hill (ONSW Promotions Director) have been working with Centennial Parkland management to create a permanent orienteering course; Barbara showed off the new pack of map and instructions that will be available from the Parklands office later in July.
