Warnell Engelbrecht is our Orienteering Evangelist in the Northern Cape. As he was in Johannesburg last weekend, he was able to join us at the Modderfontein event. He enjoyed it greatly despite falling and hurting his knee, and losing a shoe in the mud!
Warnell has orienteering maps in the Springbok area including a farm and several schools. Before Covid-19 he worked with the kids at the schools, teaching the basics using activities from “O-in-a-Box”. Unfortunately the schools and the municipalities are not allowing orienteering at the moment due to the risks of Covid-19. It is a pity as orienteering is conducted outdoors with social distancing and is one of the best sports in these times.
Hopefully next year will be better!
