The Election Nightgaine wrap up Print E-mail

A band of hearty electors spent Saturday night unglued from their seats and TVs. They voted with their feet and collected points from some spectacular high hills including Rob Roy (Gillard’s grunt) and Big Monks (Abbot’s folly). Not many made it right down south to the Green’s Gamble, but those that did, picked up lots of ‘votes’.  The creeks ran, the frogs croaked and the stars shone.  Everyone was back before the bells rang to enjoy a wonderful spread from Hartley Lifecare. 
The Men’s Open Fishing and Lifestyle Party (Greg Jolley and Peter Young) were the overall winners, closely followed by Jasmine Elson and Craig Mottershead from the Australian Mixed Open Sex Party. The Hardworking Edwards Family First team did well and the Women’s Super(vet) Fast Socialist Equity Party came in with a very respectable score.
A big thankyou to the setters Mike and Marg Harrap and Doug Collier for a challenging and interesting course, and to all the landholders for giving us access to the area. We would all vote to go there again in the daylight!

The Election nightgaine 2010 Print E-mail

21 August: 4pm to 11pm
Cast your vote, then come to the party in the Rob Roy Nature Reserve. This year's nightgaine is on the hills east of Lanyon and runs from 4pm till 11pm. You will have the bonus of a couple of hours of daylight before the lights of Canberra twinkle and the moon shines brightly.  For those scared of the dark, you are welcome to do just the daylight portion (about 2.5 hours).  You'll miss the stars, but the sunset will be good.  The area is a mix of open grasslands, native forest and some grazing country.  There are a few fire-trails and some hills to keep you toasty warm.  Elevation ranges from 670m to 1094m.  Entries are now open or contact Jean on 6248 9874.

ACT Cycle Rogaine Print E-mail

A beautiful day welcomed about 60 mountain bikers to the Billapaloola Cyclegaine on Sunday 25th July.  25 teams competed on a course that featured a good range of cycling from a bit of fast bitumen around the hash house to short sections of very sticky clay.  Sweeping vistas were gained from the hilltops and blackberries negotiated to get to the controls off the road.
