IOF have taken pity on NZ and OZ again, and given us 10 runners in each grade.

...and now qualification is actually qualification for the sprint, with 40 runners going through to the final. Unlike previously, in which I heard it was for just determining the start order.

Maybe I've missed it it known if there are to be any Trials for the WC? If so when?

Show Profile  Greg Posted: 5 August 2014, 6:15 AM  
I'm waiting for the 6 month notice

How do we know if the ' NZ team World Cup Initial Entry' is going to be covered off? (see notice from World Cup website below) Plus who should I direct this query to (especially while there is no HP Leader keeping an eye that all these deadlines are met?...

Who has put their name up for the WC team? Will we see some young ones sneaking in?

Lets get around the sometimes lack of transparency in past selections and post a list of all those available here.

Tim, Nick H, Gene, Matt O, Tom, Cam T, Chris, Tane? who else has their name down

Lizzie, Georgia, Immy, ????

Confirming Laura & Tim will be back from their adventures and will be trialling

Hardly seems necessary to go through all the expense required to get there when there are probably only 10 likely candidates for both Men and Women anyway. Why not just put names forward and let selectors sort them out, if necessary.

Tane is not going to Tassie, but most of the JWOC team are going, and also for the women, Rachel Smith and Renee Beveridge will make the team.

Just hope they don't pick 10 men and 10 women because they can.

It would be a real shame if we can't field a full team. What a tiny sport we still are in New Zealand if that is the case.

Personally I think if you are keen to do well in Tasmania you should be trying to do all the events you can in the next while... Of course I'm biased and want people to come to PAPO's event. But I don't think it should be that expensive - if you booked tickets a while ago then there lots of cheap options and probably you can still get reasonable flights. If people need rides when they get here they should let us know - I'm also happy to organise a minibus etc if it's needed and if people want to stay Sunday or nights before in Chch, we have a guest room that we specifically included, when building our house, to host orienteers (on the bottom floor away from the kids and with its own bathroom)!

I totally agree with Jenni re doing well in Tasmania. Over the years, our family training philosophy has been to compete on as many new maps/different terrains as possible. Plus I think of all the times the South Island orienteers pay the extra travel costs to get to predominantly North Island events - we should make every effort to get to their unique South Island maps! I am really looking forward to the weekend down South

If anyone needs a ride for the Geraldine races that's coming from the North Island I will be hiring/driving a van/car. We've got 5 so far. If anyone else is keen email me thomasreynolds123 @ gmail. com

I'm going to smash you Tom.

I won't be racing against you in m35 Brent.
