This was certainly the most successful event we have held in years.  It attracted many entries from the mainland and some from overseas.  Particular thanks are due to Gary Carroll, Matt Chamberlain, Bernard Walker and Sarah Brain for the many days they spent designing and setting the course.  Thanks also to the many others who helped with the event organisation too.  We were grateful for the help we received from competitors who helped collect controls on the Sunday after the event.

Both events were won by teams from the mainland.  David Baldwin and Julie Quinn from ACTRA won the 24hr event , Steve Loch and Polly Weston from WARA won the 8hr event.  Read an account of how they won kindly provided by Julie Quinn here.

Some Tasmanian teams performed well: Luke Rapley and Kris Clauson came 3rd in the 24hr event, Kieren Blake, Bromwyn Kimber and Steve Lock came 2nd in the 8hr event.

This event was held last October.  The University of Tasmania was represented by Jess Fuller-Smith, Omar Martin-Gonzales and Charles Hooley.  They performed well, coming second in the event.  Read an account of their experience kindly provided by Jess here.
