Here are some follow-up notes. (Re-published due to repeated requests for some of this info).
NSW Long Championships Results Monday, 12 September 2011 They came, they shivered, some conquered, some conked out. Thanks to everyone who came. We had fun, even those who camped, we hope you did. Congratulations to all the winners.
Metro League 3, Appin Sunday, 29 May 2011 Results and splits of Metro League 3.
MetroLeague 1, Harrington Park Monday, 21 March 2011 Through hell and high-water
Sydney Sprint Series #10, Callan Park Monday, 7 March 2011 The last event of the series and Andy Hill finished the series with yet another win on what was a long sprint. Another quality map and a great course from Helen Murphy and the Uringa crew.
Sydney Sprint Series #9, DADHC Parramatta Tuesday, 1 March 2011 SHOO staged round 9 of the Sydney Sprint Series on a newly reworked map. Having the mapper, Lyn Malmgron, plan was a great idea as she extracted the best from a small area.
Summer Series 21, 2010/2011 - Results, Splits, Routegadget Wednesday, 23 February 2011 Great planning by Gill Fowler, despite the sudden unavailability of the Showground. If you are looking for more of Gill's work, check out the NSWRA mini-rogaine (3 hours)coming up on 20th March and timed so that you could also run Metro League.
St Valentine's Day Massacre ! Tuesday, 15 February 2011 Carnage was the winner at the Valentine's Day Sprint-O as seven runners fell for "dummy controls".
Sydney Sprint Series #7, Olympic Park, Homebush Bay Monday, 14 February 2011 Andy Hill made it two wins in a row on Sue Davis' Sydney Olympic Park course, overhauling Ian Meyer at the 12th of 14 controls, whilst Matthew Hill flew the flag for the juniors after a slow start. Fastest woman was Kiwi rep Amber Morrison, beating Big Foot's Cath Chalmers by almost two minutes.
Sydney Sprint Series #2, 2011 - Bicentennial Park, Homebush Bay Monday, 10 January 2011 A short first control threw a few competitors minds at the start of the 3.2km sprint course. Planner Mark Shingler was delighted to see Josh Blatchford win the event in a little over 15 minutes, whilst Catherine Murphy (18:46) led home such a large pack of women, the guys will be asking for shorter courses.
Summer Series 14, 2010/2011 - Results Wednesday, 5 January 2011 Thanks to Saint Ignatius' College, Riveview for giving planner David Gatwood great access for this event. David made great use of the privilege and set a cracking course.
Orienteering - what's that about then ? (video) Friday, 17 December 2010 For those stumbling onto this site in pursuit of enlightenment, or anyone who wants to see what you wear orienteering in a cold climate, watch this excellent BBC video (thanks Mark S for the tip-off)
Summer Series 10, 2010 - Results Wednesday, 8 December 2010 **Update - RouteGadget is now available for this event*** Thanks to Debbie for planning, and all the Big Feet helpers. Congratulations to everyone who used SportIdent for the first time without problem. Special mention to the two competitors who swapped SI sticks on the way around the course (despite the fact that they were different colours) - that really challenged the results team.
Summer Series 10, 2010 - Splits Wednesday, 8 December 2010 Summer series number 10 of the 2010 season was an all-electronic affair with the club using SportIdent for the first time. For those Summer Series fanatics who really want to see split times, here they are.
Gill Fowler wins World Rogaine champs as Mounty fixes mispunch blues Saturday, 27 November 2010 Gill Fowler, recruited by Big Foot number-cruncher Andrew Lumsden won the women's division of the World Rogaine champs last weekend competing with Alexa McAuley. Ahead of Gill, but competing in the mens division, Richard Mountstephens and partner Dennis de Monchy finished 13th.
Sprints: Stewards enquiry & results Sunday, 31 October 2010 Note that Tracy Marsh was declared winner on the day in the women's division, just pipping Lisa Grant in an unedifying brawl which also involved known trouble-maker (and Tracy's husband) Paul Marsh. Since Big Foot Sprints is a first-past the line event, and (the last I saw) the giant Toblerone was no longer so giant, the prizes stay. However the table of record will show that the race was a tie.
Big Foot Sprints Sunday, 31 October 2010 Thanks to everyone for coming. Splits are now available. Consolidated results to come.
