2014 Mid-Winter Event Wrap Up

checkpoint 46A gloriously sunny day greeted the 200 competitors of the winter 4 hour rogaine "Jumping the Puddles" at Googong Dam on Sunday 13th July. The frost had cleared by the time teams headed off from the woolshed on an enjoyable course set by Andrew Rowe (with assistance from Peter Young and Clare Lonergan). Controls led teams to surprising and spectacular views across the dam and Queanbeyan River.

The overall winners were Matthew Crane and Thomas Brazier with 1070 points (pictured right).Winners Matt Crane and Tom Brazier Lee Rice, Michael McCluskey and Charlotte Peterson won the Mixed Open, while Gail Sutton and Phoebe Chadwick-Masters won the Women’s Open. Congratulations to all the other winner too - Jo Andrews and Peter Fogarty (Men’s Veterans), Carol Harding and Pat Miethke (Women’s Veterans), Graham Atkins and Karen Trutwein (Mixed Veterans), John Harding and Monika Short (Mixed Superveterans) and Anne Sawkins and Ann Stewart (Women’s Superveterans).The junior and family categories were won by the Pirroinens (both on 600 points) with bragging rights going to the juniors Jesse and Christian coming in 13 minutes earlier than Ari, Madeleine and Bryn.

Check out the full results, event photos in the ACTRA gallery and a short video compiled by Laure Gauthiez-Puttallaz (team 71).

2014 ACT Champs navigation challenges

The course for the 2014 ACT champs was a pleasure to set in such a beautiful area, and being a championship event Julie and I wanted to make it challenging to plan a course and also set some controls that would test even the most experienced navigators.

Vale Geoff Mercer

It is with great sadness that we inform the ACTRA rogaining community of the passing on Saturday (12th April) afternoon of Geoff Mercer.

Geoff was a passionate rogainer through the 1990’s and early 2000’s.  He was a life member of ACTRA and President for many years.  He also served the Australian Rogaining Association as Secretary, and was the organizer and course setter of the 2002 Australian Rogaining Championships.  Geoff’s involvement in ACTRA established many of the ways we do things in our association and was a great source of wise counsel and thoughtful guidance for many people both competing and organizing events.

2014 ACT Rogaining Champs and 8 hr event

2014_ACT_Champs_-_Crossing_Murrumbidgee_1.pngThe Long Plain-gaine featured the high country of the northern Kosciusko National Park with open plains, and black sallee and snowgum forests. Lots of rain in the previous week and the night before raised the level of the Murumbidgee River so that many teams got more than just their feet wet crossing. Competitors took in the relatively recent history of the high country through four old huts on the course and hundreds of brumbies. Many smiling faces at the end of the event from our 5 year olds through to the supervets showed that the country had performed it's magic on competitors as well as the course setters.
