The Australian Police and Emergency Games hit Hobart’s Infamous Dunes

Shane Jenkins2010 Archive

Orienteering Tasmania is hosting the orienteering competition for the Australian Police and Emergency Services Games (AP&ES Games) on Sunday 21 February.  The event will be held on arguably Australia’s most challenging map, Pittwater.  The technical sand dune terrain has bamboozled many a fine orienteer over the years.

The event will be held in conjunction with a local event, so open to all to take up the challenge.  You can test your navigation skills against police and emergency service workers. Pittwater is just a few kilometres from the airport and the centre of Hobart.  For interstate entrants, an easy place to travel for the weekend.

Enter is on the day for unofficial AP&ES Games competitors (ie most of us who will be treating the event as a local but challenging event).  BUT AP&ES Games competitors MUST enter through their on-line entry form found at*  by 1 February. To find out more visit the OT website or email Miriam
