Spring Mystery Madness Rogaine

Port Hills, Christchurch, 15 Oct 05

12, 6 and 3 hours, daylight. Planners 3rd-year students, B.Ed.Adv.Rec., Chch Poly, under the supervision of

To the Question and Answer controls in the Spring Mystery Madness, student planners added in the old favourite - letters which spelt the word S-A-N-D-P-I-T. Prizes of course were to be found in the sandpit at the school where the 12/6/3hr event started and finished.

But this was a real rogaine, with 4 third-year students in the Batchelor of Education in Adventure Recreation having modified the topo map in OCAD, sought permission for non-public areas on the Port Hills between Dyers Pass and Sumner, planned the course using question-and-answer controls, advertised the event and run it on the day. Other students used the event for different assignments, including video filming experience and safety planning. Supervisor Jean Cory-Wright reports another by-product - the map is now on sale to the public through event sponsor Mapworld. And the original objective - a better map for her navigation teaching and training.

There were 150 participants including first and second-year students. Results have some gaps.
