Picks for NZSSC

Show Profile  PaulS Posted: 20 July 2005, 10:44 AM  
See who gets closest...

Sen: Thomas Reynolds
Int: Josh Nicholls
Jun: Scott McDonald

Thomas Reynolds and Scott McDonald will be too strong for their competitors. Intermediate boys is wide open as a result of all the regular orienteers in intermediate devaluing the grade and choosing to run up... I'm backing a fellow Napier BHS mate.

Sen: Lizzie Ingham
Int: Cara McDonald
Jun: Kate Morrison

If Lizzie can repeat JWOC form no one will be able to touch her. Cara's been ill lately, hasn't done a lot of orienteering but she is the most experienced in the grade. It's hard not to back a Morrison.

I think the most interesting competition will be the overall schools competition. Can Napier Boys size overcome the emergence of Havelock North as a force in national schools orienteering, or will Birkenhead steamroll them both? It makes out to be a very exciting championships. Hopefully not as wet as last year!

Secondary Schools are this Friday and Saturday at a map called Harakeke. Harakeke is just out of Wangavegas.

Any ideas on the number of entries. Last year event topped 450? which would make it the biggest orienteering event in the country?

You can access the event program at:

I don't think it's quite matched last year's entries.

Have to agree with all those picks Paul...maybe a couple of speed freaks, Kate Rea and Duncan O'Reagan for the senior grades if they can be consistent. Also big wraps on Daniel Barnfield hes good on flat dunes

No one will beat the MacDonalds unless something goes horribly wrong, Kate is not quite so clear cut and intermediate boys is one of those grades that some new fast guy might win, but if its tricky enough Jamie Brigham Watson is a fella with the skills to hold it together.

Show Profile  Jack Vincent Posted: 21 July 2005, 8:24 AM  
I think that whatever happens happens and the winner will deserve the win...

Show Profile  Jamie Posted: 21 July 2005, 10:39 AM  
Lifes not fair Jack...arrogant koozas who don't train win all the time.

Look at Neil Kerrison, really nice guy but what has he ever won?

Show Profile  Neil K Posted: 21 July 2005, 12:30 PM  
I dispute that.

I'm not nice.

Show Profile  Jamie Posted: 21 July 2005, 4:06 PM  
And you have won four times at elite level since your debut in 1998 (4 more than one Brent Edwards has won in the same time period).

Show Profile  addison Posted: 22 July 2005, 12:10 AM  
The best dont always win Jack. Look at Martin in 2003. lol

Arrogant koozas who dont deserve to win do win, look at me I just won oringen day4 lol

Good stuff Simon, what was Ross doing?, he had as many fastest splits as he did last splits.

Show Profile  Martin Posted: 22 July 2005, 8:32 PM  
anyone know the results? cant find them on the webpage, i assume it wasnt SIdent

2003 doesnt show that look at the rest of the year

Simon and Ross having fun bagging splits. The best analogy i can think of for Day 2 and 5 is a flooded Harakeke!

Show Profile  Jack Vincent Posted: 23 July 2005, 2:50 PM  
Congrats to Tom, Lizzie, Jordan, Rachel, Scott and Emily! Great racing. All of you deserved the win...and all of them train. And they all real nice guys.
