Show Profile  Rog Posted: 23 January 2009, 9:41 AM  
The 2009 NZ National Champs entry form has changed. Version 2 is available for download now from the event website.

This will affect those of you who got an entry form at Oceania, or have downloaded the entry form before today (23/1/09).

Event two, the Middle distance event.
Venue and Map has changed as the relevant area of Woodhill Forest has been felled without warning.
The event is now a single race middle distance course. The entry fee has been reduced.
Check event web site for details.

The online entry form will be available soon.

You can subscribe to email updates as well

The southern end of White Lightning, which we have been saving, has been felled without any notification, and a few years ahead of the usual 26 year life. Apparently there was an order for coastal pulp, and they chose this area.

This is on top of thinning Hedley Road after only one use when they forgot about the next event we had planned to have there,and the removal of Celebre, Pot Luck and Stags Roar for the 4 wheel drive park, so we are feeling a bit hard done by in Woodhill forest.

The new map is gully/spur with enough clean forest for one middle race.
The farmland will be kept for the NI Secondary school champs 2 weeks later, which was the original plan for the map, and we are certainly lucky we have such a good backup.

Bit of a shame, but beggers can't be choosers and therefore I'm sure that the new map will be worthy. Should just have it at Slater Rd ;-)

There would be too many elites having to run unofficially.

The new map will be a good challenge, and unknown terrain.

Disapointed about white lightning (will give my mate who does harvest modelling for the woodhill managers a kick up the bum next time I see him). Not disapointed that the NZ middle distance champs will be A middle distance race.
