2014 Paddy Pallin Wrap Up

Close to 500 people enjoyed a glorious day at Yankee Hat in Namadgi National Park for the ‘Yankee Hatagaine’, the 2014 Paddy Pallin 6hr Rogaine on Sunday 2 March. Numbers were boosted by the large contingent of ANU students preparing for the upcoming Inward Bound challenge.

With only a few clouds in the sky competitors planned their routes choosing the more open northern section, the bush in the south – or a mixture of the two! Plenty of wildlife was spotted – lizards galore, eagles and kangaroos with more than a few snakes out and about. One team even claimed they couldn't punch control 62 because there was a big snake at the control. They took a photo to prove they had been there!

February Twilight Rogaine Wrap-up

The twilight rogaine at Stromlo on 13 February was another great event for ACTRA. The weather was perfect with some kind cloud cover providing some relief from the recent heat. Stromlo was its usual buzz of activity with mountain bikes, criterion racing and 150 rogaining participants. Thanks to Rachel and Wayne Gregson for setting a great course with the perfect length with one team clearing it in just over 2 and 3/4 hours. There were lots of smiles at the end which couldn't only be based on the great catering effort! It was a big volunteer effort with the catering; a big thank you goes to Jenny Arnold, Sal Ozgul and Camilla Brent as well as Wayne and Rachel for all the help on the day. Congratulations to all the category winners and to Damiano Luzzi and Andrew Barnett (pictured), our overall winners with 1680 points.

Results are now available.

Twilight event at Goorooyaroo

The Twilight event on Saturday 30 November was a great success with nearly 200 people enjoying perfect weather on a lovely course.  Setters Seb Dunne and Aaron Coles put forward a good course including being able to use Mulligans Flat despite not being allowed off the trail so we didn't spook the newly released bandicoots.  Many thanks to the other helpers Dane Roberts and Kath Bell who vetted and hung, David Baldwin and Julie Quinn for admin and catering, Jean for the wonderful cakes and all the other volunteers who helped do a quick pack-up in the dark.

Overall winners, Rob Walter, Jim Oystein-Nybraate and Matt Crane cleaned the course in 2:23.  We possibly had a record number of family teams with 22 teams entered with the team of Alison Inglis, Tristan Miller and Patrick Miller taking out the family category.  Well done to everyone and see the results page if you want to see how you and your friends went.

Barkley adopted Angus and Michael Hudson who had a great time judging by the photo.

Poem and story from the ACT Champs

ACTRA members Jean and Barkley (with a little help from Don) have talent in more than just rogaining.  Check out Jean's poem and Barkely's event story linked here or from the event page.  We have fixed the problem with posting stories so you can put your rogaine story or photos up too.  See the event pages for the link or email Benita with your contribution.
