Slap Up at the Gourock Gambol
Well done to all the teams who gambolled in wonderful spring weather around the headwaters of the Queanbeyan River. The overall winners in the 6 hour were Holly Ashburner, Tom Fitzgerald and Kelvin Peh who scored about half the number of points of the overall winners in the 12 hour (Xanda Kolesnikow and Ivan Koudashev). Family teams were well represented – nine in the 6 hour event with Sam, Nellie, Sofiya, Millie and Lawrence winning the category. Leanne and Ross Wilkinson scored very well in the 12 hour family category.
Lots of teams saw snakes (brown, copperhead, tiger and black) as well as less scary wombats, wallabies, echidnas and many water birds. The organisers noted one team with rogaine flag painted fingernails and another team that forgot to turn their engine off before heading out on the course. Luckily the door was open! We hope numberplate ERY… got home ok.
Many thanks to all the volunteers and the landowners for making this event happen.
