Terrific Twilight!

What a terrific event the twilight rogaine is proving to be. There were over 300 participants/117 teams at Saturday nights 3 hour event held at Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura. This included 7 junior and 11 family teams. At the other end of the scale, there were 3 ultravet teams. There was also an uncounted but large number of teams from the ANU and 6 teams from Narrabundah college. Although it was pretty dark by the end, most people seemed to be smiling from the glow of white teeth by torch light.

 

Jon Glanville set a fabulous course that the ACTRA committee thought was maybe too big - not so, according to the 6 teams who cleared the course with 1570 points! Jon is a novice rogaine setter and was ably assisted by veteran rogainer, Glenn Bridgart. Matthew Crane and Rob Walter were pipped at the post for line honours by Martin Dent and Mark Bourne, clearing the course in an impressive 2:12 and 2:13. Julie Quinn and David Baldwin were the best of the veterans with 1560 points and women's open went to An Ren Chen and Wendy Emerton with 1170 points. Zoe Melhuish, Ella Cuthbert and David Stocks claimed the junior honours with 1060 points and with 640 points, the ultravets went to Colleen Mock and Barbara Martin. The family category was won by Nick and Henry Lheude and Lisa Cutfield with 810 points.

But the overall winners of the day were the volunteers who managed to take half an hour out of a super busy schedule to enjoy pizzas and a chat. Those fiddly cloth wrist tags made for a busy admin run! Thanks goes to Anne Sawkins, Jenny Arnold, Jaqui Poldy, Glenn, Jon, Mischa Saunders and Rowan Edwards who made the day go so smoothly. Thanks too to Julie Quinn who cut up a lifetimes supply of watermelon on a hot Saturday afternoon and Gail Sutton for the map.

 

Preliminary results can be found here. See you all at our next 2018 event, the Paddy Pallin.

South Coast glory for ACT Champions

Dane Roberts, helped by the other setters and vetters Jonathan Miller, Graham Atkins, Keith Conley and Tom Brazier, set a course to amaze and challenge everyone. Rogainers in both the 8 and 24 hr events were able to sample the amazing Murramarang National Park's tall spotted gums, rainforest vines and palms, coastal scenery (including orcas offshore), and ticks. Some teams crossed under the highway to the South Brooman State Forest to find open shady gullies and dry spurs.

Congratulations to Harry Andrews and Thomas Larkin who won the 8 hr event from Lee Rice and Craig Cowan. Congratulations to David Baldwin and Julie Quinn who are the 2017 ACT Champions (overall). Ronnie Taib and David Williams are the 2017 ACT Mens Champions and Ellen Braybon and Nicole Mealing are the 2017 Womens Champions. Special mention to the super effort of our Victorian friends Merv Trease and Vic Sedunary who took out the Mens Ultravet, Mens Supervet, Mens Vets and were second in the Open Mens! Other winners and preliminary results are on the event page, photos on the Smugmug site, and Strava Fly-bys of some teams.

Thank you to all the other helpers Glenn Bridgart, Jiaying Goh, Mark Jenkins.
