2016 kicks off with a great twilight event

IMGP1513.jpgWe got the year off to a great start last Saturday with our twilight event. A strong and deep list of teams participated, with Martin Dent and rogaining novice Mark Bourne taking out the honours. Six teams cleared the course, with Martin and Mark first home in 2 hours 20 minutes. Full results are here.


Many thanks to Dane Roberts, Tom Banks and all the other volunteers who made this event happen. Our thanks also to the Kama Scouts for their catering and the use of the hall as hash house. And thank you, too, for participating.


If you have any photos of the event, we would love to post them on our smugmug page. If you can provide photos, please contact Jonathan.


Our eyes now turn to the Paddy Pallin event on 20 March. More information coming soon on that.

Spring in Bond00

Spring was the weather for rogainers in the Bondo State Forest with a thunderstorm in the middle of the 6 hr event. Fortunately, the sun had come out again by 5 pm so the 12 hr teams had a dry evening. A great course was set by Laure, Pierre-Dominique, Kieran, Clare, Aaron, Dane, Jean and Ron taking in the wonderful eucalypt forest complete with large trees, wombat holes, lyrebird mounds and flowing creeks. Congratulations to 6 hr winners Tess Noble and Jackson Bursill and 12 hr winners David Baldwin and Julie Quinn.  Category winners and navlight routes are on the event page.

 

Control collectors are needed. Please contact Dane if you can help.

Mid-winter 4 hour defies bleak forecast

IMGP0999.jpgSixty-one teams defied dire forecasts to compete in the mid-winter 4 hour event. They were blessed with relatively benign weather, but it was definitely very wet and treacherous under foot. Snow was visible on surrounding hills. (Lots of photos of the event are available on Smugmug).

Thomas Banks and Thomas Brazier emerged as strong overall winners with 1730 points ahead of Mark Euston and James Bailie on 1640. Julie Quinn and David Baldwin finished third and took honours in the mixed with 1610. Supervets Mike Hotchkis and Neil Hawthorne came in fourth with 1550, while Laure Gauthiez Putallaz, Alice Bates and Sarah Buckerfield won the women’s open and the award for the most colourful clothes with 1450. Hannah and Alistair McClusky won the family event with 890.  Full results are here.

Thank you to all participants who braved the weather and for making a great event, especially our NSW friends. Our many thanks to all the volunteers who made it all possible, including the setters and vetters Doug Collier, Neets Pluschke, Damien Ayers and Glenn Bridgart, and to Ron Simpson who masterfully managed the computer. A particular thank you to Susie Sprague, who once more cheerfully and capably led the team.

We now look forward to the metrogaine on 16 August and the ACT 8/24 champs over 5-6 September.
