Event directions: .

From Bendigo: Travel out through Spring Gully on Spring Gully and Mandurang Roads towards Mandurang. Continue past Tannery Lane and turn right into Pentland’s Road (O sign), then almost immediately right again into Holliday’s Road (O sign) and continue on the bitumen to the start, approx 1.5 to 2.0 kms.

From Melbourne, Castlemaine, Ballarat: Travel towards Bendigo through Sedgwick and Mandurang. Approx. 1 km from the Mandurang Recreation Reserve turn left (O sign) into Pentland’s Road, then almost immediately, turn right into Holliday’s Road and then as above.

There will be 30 controls out in the forest, each worth 10, 20 or 30 points depending on distance and difficulty. You will have one hour to visit as many controls as you can, and you must be back within the hour – for every minute late 10 points will be deducted. There will be one section with about 10 controls that will be safe, but challenging, for our Junior orienteers and anyone who is looking for a moderate level of navigation. Manual punching will be used.

Morning in the Bush near Bendigo is a wonderful time – come and enjoy it!

Post event: After the race there will be a chicken, soft drink and champagne breakfast, and afterwards you are invited to the Annual General Meeting of Bendigo Orienteers Inc. This usually takes about 30 minutes. Please bring your own chair.

The Fowl and Fizz has been going for a long time – probably started in the late 1980’s, early 90’s and has become one of the signature events on Bendigo’s calendar. It has been cancelled only once, in 2009 because of the Black Saturday’s Total Fire Ban.

Note: Fowl and Fizz will be cancelled in the event of the day being declared one of Total Fire Ban, so watch the weather forecast the night before – TFB, event cancelled!
