Mid-winter 4 hour defies bleak forecast Print E-mail

IMGP0999.jpgSixty-one teams defied dire forecasts to compete in the mid-winter 4 hour event. They were blessed with relatively benign weather, but it was definitely very wet and treacherous under foot. Snow was visible on surrounding hills. (Lots of photos of the event are available on Smugmug).

Thomas Banks and Thomas Brazier emerged as strong overall winners with 1730 points ahead of Mark Euston and James Bailie on 1640. Julie Quinn and David Baldwin finished third and took honours in the mixed with 1610. Supervets Mike Hotchkis and Neil Hawthorne came in fourth with 1550, while Laure Gauthiez Putallaz, Alice Bates and Sarah Buckerfield won the women’s open and the award for the most colourful clothes with 1450. Hannah and Alistair McClusky won the family event with 890.  Full results are here.

Thank you to all participants who braved the weather and for making a great event, especially our NSW friends. Our many thanks to all the volunteers who made it all possible, including the setters and vetters Doug Collier, Neets Pluschke, Damien Ayers and Glenn Bridgart, and to Ron Simpson who masterfully managed the computer. A particular thank you to Susie Sprague, who once more cheerfully and capably led the team.

We now look forward to the metrogaine on 16 August and the ACT 8/24 champs over 5-6 September.
