Blood and Thunder Event

Wednesday, 1 July 2015

Lovely weather, good courses and, at least for some, a convivial BBQ afterwards.  This event was marked by the noticeably good level of newcomers, especially several who had made the  transition from Adelaide parkland events to the forest.  Andrew Kennedy set a really good suite of courses and the area remains challenging enough even if it has been frequently used.   The longer courses started into the rocky area and looped back through there before the Finish (see Course 2 below).


We  also had very helpful input from the local landowners (Kate and Dave Thorsteinsen) in whose paddock we parked as well as the local ranger at Mt Crawford.  The walk to the toilets was unfortunate but happened because the ranger explicitly asked that we set up well away from the campers. As ever thank you to the Wallaringa helpers especially because absence and illness stretched things somewhat.

Results are available on the results page - also a new view of the splits in the graphical format of Splits Browser - see the link at the top of the Results page (provided by David George).
