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.

 
ACT Birthday Champs Celebrated in Style!

ACTRA celebrated its 30th birthday in style with the 8hr and 24 hr Rogaining Championships on 21-22 September 2013. Namadgi put on a good show with lovely weather on the Saturday, albeit a bit cold overnight, and a shower of rain right on midday to end the event. Julie Quinn and David Baldwin were ACT Champions clearing the course, with Susie Sprague and Graham Atkins winning the 8hr event. Big thank you to Jean Douglass and Ron Simpson for setting the course and doing so much of the organising, plus all the other volunteers and caterers who made this birthday event so special. Check out Julie and Barkley (the ACTRA mascot) with the birthday cake! More photos in the gallery.
