Twenty Fifth Tinto Twin Night Event

Saturday 27 October 2012 - Carmichael Estate
Check the start lists at

The Estate policies first used for the 1988 initial Tinto Twin night and day “badge events” incorporate ancient woodlands, mature woodland plantations, runnable one direction willow crops, fast open recently cropped barley stubble and farmland and heather moorland with quarry holes and will present a good mixed night orienteering challenge with medium climb.

The map is at 2 scales 1:15000 for Course 1 (M21-40) and 1:10000 for courses 2-6 and was updated with revisions by DOLM in late summer 2012.

Planners: Dick and Trish Carmichael TINTO
Controller: Ted Finch FVO
Organiser: Marcella McLennan TINTO
