The 4th in a series of caches, hidden to coincide with the local "Keyne-O" orienteering events in Milton Keynes parks.
This cache is the 4th in a series which have been placed to celebrate the 2012 Keyne-O series of local orienteering events takes place once a month in the different parks around Milton Keynes.
The event taking place on 19th August 2012 is at Campbell Park - starting near the cricket pavilion.
I thought that a few Geocachers may be interested in having a go at a different sort of navigation for a bit of fun! The Keyne-O orienteering events are open to anyone and are run by the South Midlands Orienteering Club. They are great for beginners and more experienced orienteerers who fancy a good run around. There are 3 different courses "amble" ~ 3km - controls are all easy to find, "trot" ~ 5km - controls may be a bit more challenging and the "run"~ 7km - controls are again a bit more challenging.

Now…..how to find the cache!!!
This multi-cache requires you to find 6 of the permanent orienteering posts around Campbell Park. A map showing all the posts in Campbell Park and Willen Lake is available from the Parks Trust website http://www.theparkstrust.com/sports-and-activities/orienteering. (NOTE: You don’t need the map for this multi as I have given you the GPS co-ordinates of each of the posts!)The posts are painted green with red and white bands. Each post has a number on the top and two letters painted on the side. You will need the letter combination on each of the 6 posts listed as waypoints to determine the location of the cache!
I hope you enjoy your walk around Campbell Park, finding this cache and perhaps we will see you at the event on the 19th August!!
