Discussion: Mapper Wanted: Darwin, Australia

in: Orienteering; General

Our club is looking for a mapper. We have a number of projects which would add up to 3 months full time if all combined. Interstate and international mappers are encouraged to apply.

We are making maps in areas of simple bush, park and urban streets. The mapping work can be split into smaller time periods and maybe you can fit it in around work in other states. In addition to this mapping work we have some funding for coaching activities and installing permanent courses.

Mappers can stay with local orienteering families and access to a car can be arranged. You do not need to buy one for your time in Darwin.

About Darwin:
In Darwin it is warm all year. The day time temperature is always near or above 30 degrees Celsius. The best time of year to visit is between May and September, because it is dry season and not humid.

Darwin is famous for having a laid back feel, with an outdoors culture. There are many markets, festivals and community events. Many international tourists come to visit the outback, to learn about indigenous culture, and to visit nearby national parks which have spectacular waterfalls.

There is one orienteering club in Darwin. The club holds one or two orienteering events each month. These events attract around 100 people, and there are always many new people. The club always needs help with coaching and teaching orienteering, both to the public at weekend events and in schools during the week.

Strangely, I am looking for work for about three months and I am somewhat of a mapper although I wouldn't trust my bush mapping skills. Trying to fill in time from August to December on and off although do have a couple of race commitments during that time, which involve flights from Perth (well one does anyway), sigh.

Dooooo Eeeeeeet. I will not look after tRicky's kitties but I will look after his bikes. I am especially interested in giving his e-bike a test ride!

Do you call it that because I go 'eeeeeee!!!' when it bounces over rocks?

I went "Doo eet!" because TT went "Doo eet!" but I don't really know what it means and google didn't help.

More importantly, I'm concerned about your bouncing of kitties on rocks.

"Dooooo Eeeeeeet" is 'Strayan for "Do it" It is an Aussie way of egging someone on or daring them to do something.

Kitties don't go on rocks. They sit on couches, or fall asleep on your lap if you need to move or curl up on your laptop when you would very much like to use it.
