Poles Apart at the Piggery

The NSBH team after the raceSunday 26 August 2012 - Belanglo - well here we are...garingal.com.au is back on line after a few weeks break due to a website update.  We kick off with the news this week that the North Sydney Boys High School orienteering team took out the NSW Schools Championships at the Piggery on the weekend.  This was the first time that the NSBH team has won the title and a proud moment for Garingal as most of the team are members of the club.  Some of the team have been competing in the Junior League for a number of years and for others it was their first event.  Well done to the boys.  A new title was added this year for the champion region.  The Combined Independent Schools team took out this title and we congratulate Aidan and Michele Dawson who were members of the winning regional team. 

The races were held on a map known as "The Piggery" which is located at Belanglo State Forest.  This was the second day of a weekend State League double header in the forest.  Day 1 was held about 6km away in the southern end of the forest on a map that was so old it seemed new.  There were some long times on the day 1 course with some downed timber on the ground and a challenging map. Both days were entertaining orienteering in a quality forest.  State League 10 - Results - Splits - NSW Schools Champs (State League 11) - Results - Splits


Moonlight Madness 6 -  Wednesday 29 August 2012 at Brennan Park at King Street Waverton.  GO's Wendy Stevenson set a night score course of 30 controls around Balls Head & Berry Island, particularly challenging for the elites but with a good selection of control options for the recreational orienteers to exercise body and mind over 45 minutes or so.  Results and the map can be viewed here.

Next and final MM for 2012 is to be around Putney under the September Full Moon - click the moon wearing the headlamp for details.
