ACT champs 8/24 hour event over 30 April/1 May: enter by 25 April Print E-mail

P1040989__640x480_.jpgEnter now for the ACT's annual signature event: the ACT 8 and 24 hour championships, this year at Snowball. The headwaters of the Shoalhaven River are waiting for you! The area includes extensive river flats, old growth forests, some areas logged in the past and patches of farmland. Much of the area is open eucalypt forest. Of course, there are a few hills with elevations from 850m to 1250m. Fire trails cross the area and we have marked on some of the old logging tracks to help you through the scrubby bits. There will be two 1:25,000 A3 maps to ponder over on Saturday morning. 
There will be a bus to the event for those doing the 24 hour event at a subsidised fare of $25. Get there relaxed and get home safely. It takes about 2 hours to drive there. We highly recommend you take the bus, for safety and because there is limited parking at the hash house.

Book for the event by 25 April, and book the bus by 20 April.

Paddy Pallin event provides great rogaining terrain Print E-mail

12593696_959394134113794_395863496707098470_o.jpgThe eastern side of the Tallaganda Range provides magnificent rogaining country. This year at Kindervale competitors traversed rolling grazing country and pine plantations, and stretched hamstrings leaping numerous creek crossing. 

Martin Dent and Rob Walter cleared the course in 5 hours 35 minutes, ahead of mixed open winners Clare Lonergan and Kieran Macdonell. Judi Barton and Danealle Gilfillan took home the women's open trophy.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who made the course happen, property owners, Paddy Pallin and the Jerangle caterers for fine munch.

2016 kicks off with a great twilight event Print E-mail

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.
