The Night and Day rogaines were held on the 29 and 30 September at Terramungla on the northern shores of Lake George. Congratulations to Graham Atkins and Steve Hewitson who won the night event overall and to Iain Roberts, Andrew Roberts and Josh Cockerill who wone the day event overall. See the results page for the rest of the results. Many thanks to the setters and vetters Sean O'Brien, Steve Hanley, Mike Harrap and Mark Harrap. Thank you too to the Terrill Family and Claire Edwards for helping at the event.
Shaun Archer has posted a story that includes the following excerpt that nicely describes the day event: The course was great! Interesting and varied terrain and some good navigation challenges. The controls were well placed and showcased the region, a compliment to the course setters. The terrain had plenty of eucalypts and minimal brush, with surprisingly little vegetation that wanted to pull me apart.
A lovely sunny winters day greeted the participants of the 2012 Metrogaine, held in the southern suburbs of Canberra. From the vantage point of our luxurious hash house, the Tuggeranong Valley Cricket Clubhouse, we had magnificent views of the Brindabellas - with glimpses of snow!
Congratulations to the overall winner, Geoff Stacey, and runners up Seb Dunne and Danielle Winslow. It was also great to see so many families out.
Thanks to Glenn for setting a fun course, and to Doug and all the volunteers who made it happen. The usual feast put on by Hartley Lifecare at the end of the event, including wonderful homemade desserts, was also much appreciated!
Winners were Seb Dunne and Dave Meyer who visited all the controls with nearly half an hour to spare! Julie Quinn, Gill Fowler and David Baldwin also got a full house. Claire Edwards and Catherine Horan won the women's category.
Thanks to all the helpers who made the event happen - setter Colleen Mock, vetter Glenn Bridgart, administration by Colin Mock, coordinator Susie Sprague and helpers Jack Palmer, David Moore (first aid), Ann Pacey and Parissa Poulis. Thanks also to Hartley Lifecare for catering and to landholders for permission to use the area.

Australian Rogaining Championships 2012
Congratulations to Sarah Buckerfield and Ben Greenwood who won the mixed open and Australian University Championships titles for 2012.
The ACT, and the Australian National University, took out the top three places in the Australian University Rogaining Champs with Sarah and Ben in first, Phillip Gatt and Thomas Brazier in second, and Galen Correy and Oliver Lee in third. Well done.
The event was well run by the South Australians and they had certainly chosen a beautiful spot to show off the best rogaining country in the Flinders Ranges.
