Australian Three Days Concludes

Monday, 6 April 2015

The final day of the Australian Three Days was held on a new area – Mulga Valley today.  In contrast to the warm (and at times dusty) weather of the previous three days, a cold change passing through resulted in cold southerly winds and light rain through the event.  Some re-organisation of the assembly area was necessitated to give a more sheltered location for spectators.  However they still had a good view of all finishers as they negotiated the complex eroded gully system prior to the last control and finish, and of the elite competitors as they passed through both sides of the arena on their final loop.

For links all the results for all days (including Badge Splits which have now been added) – see here

Congratulations to all South Australian orienteers who were involved in the organisation of the carnival, and to all those who competed. 

We also hope the team from Hong Kong enjoyed the carnival and the visit to this semi-arid area of South Australia.

In addition congratulations to Olivia Sprod who was named in the Australian team for the second year to compete at the Junior World Orienteering Championships.
