James Meehan High School
This week, SOS is very excited to venture into a brand new school for orienteering: James Meehan High School.
Pre-entry by 12pm on the Thursday before the event is strongly preferred, please. Limited entry will be available on the event day.
The Southern Highlands Orienteers club helps us out with this Series. As well as the Bold Horizons team, club members will be on hand to answer questions and assist anyone new to orienteering.
Venue: James Meehan High School, 58 Harold St, Macquarie Fields NSW 2564
Access and Parking: Parking will be available within school grounds with access from Harold St.
Start Window: 9:30am to 11am (you can start any time within this time window)
Courses: Warm Up, Short Line, Long Line, and Score. If it’s your first time, we recommend starting out with the Warm Up and you will quickly get the idea of what to do. After that, if you want more, the event team will help you register on a second course for the morning (there’s no charge for the second course). There’s more information on courses available on the Saturday Orienteering Series page.
Groups: Families and friends are very welcome to complete a course as a group. If participating as a group, kindly enter at least one member of the group for a paid or host school student ticket. Each of these entries entitles that person to a course map, timing chip and recorded result. Accompanying family members and friends who do not need a map, timing chip or recorded result should kindly register as Group Members.
Relays: For Macarthur events, we will also conduct an informal relay each week. Form your team (2 to 4 members) on the day or let the event team know that you are interested but don’t have a team and they will match you up with some buddies for the additional run. Expect to run between 500m and 2km depending upon the team. Relay start time is 11am.
Entry is also available via Eventor.
Please note that Bold Horizons events are smoke and pet free.
We wish to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land that this event occurs on and their Country on which we gather. We would also like to show respect to all Aboriginal people. We Acknowledge the Elders in the past and in the present and Acknowledge the spirits and ancestors of the Clans that lived in this area.
