Happy New Rogaining-Year.
We have a couple of other events in the pipeline but no date for these as yet. Paul Liggins is organising a Mt Wellington foothills metrogaine to be tentatively held in May, and we also plan to hold a metro Hobart foot and bike event in late August. These events need more setters, vetters and admin assistance. If we are to have these events, then we need you (yes, you) to help.
Thanks to Lex Bull, Jane Boucher and their team for the running Bangor 3 – The return of the Oysters. I’ve done a lot of rogaines all over Australia and some of the checkpoints at Bangor were amongst the most spectacularly-located that I’ve ever seen. Special mention also to Jeff Dunn and Nicole Carpenter who not only managed admin, three event durations and the idiosyncrasies of the Navlight electronic punching system but who had to contend with the blustery front that blew away or broke their shelters in the early-morning darkness. Thanks also to Darryn and Chris who ran the catering and who were also badly impacted by the rough weather. Further down in this newsletter you’ll find reports from Lex and the 24-hour State Champs winners.
