Just a few txts from the team with some brief results

Todays race was the Middle Distance

Guys results...
Dave Shep
Neil K
Adrian Jackson
Bryn a few places back

Girls results...
Some aussie in 1st
Amber a few places back

The New Zealander's did enough to grab the points lead in the ANZ competition. Tomorrows race is the Long Distance, about 15km for the guys and 11km for the girls.

Results will be here later on I guess.

Yay, we hammered them on their home terrain, again!!!

We let them win the quiz night on Saturday though, taking the silver and 5 bars of chocolate at the end of 6 tense rounds. However they did have Blair in the team, so hardly a fair contest.

The orienteering was great, unbelieveably fast, excellent organisation, commentary, sunny, 25+C and the terrain was beautiful. The best technique was to basically run as fast as you could, as close to the red line as you could. If you didn't do this right and you got lost in the vaugness of the terrain, you could easily dump a lot of time.

The Kiwi team ran amazingly well. This type of terrain and the techniques required to race well in it are quite foreign to us and everyone put in really solid performances to comfortably beat the Bushrangers on both days.

This is the second time we have managed to win on Aussie soil and we managed it this time without most of our speedy WOC stars.

Aussie champs (foot and bike) are near by in a similiar area in 2008. Book your tickets now it will be a great event.

Well done team. In particular its tremendous to see both Morrisons overcome difficult-to-diagnose injuries.
