SA Long Champs Review

Long Champs at Mulga Valley

mulga sunset resizeThe Long Champs was held at Mulga Valley on Sunday 19th August.  For full results, badge splits, winsplits, splits browser and route gadget go to the Results Page.

Jeffa Lyon set the courses on the mallee map featuring complex erosion gullies and drainage systems and was ably assisted with legwork by John Lyon, Bob Smith, Gil Hollamby and Phil Hazell for course checking and control placement.

Eighty five people participated in the courses and there was lots of congregation around the prototype display stands being trialled at the event with live results.

OHOC also perfected their start procedures, having lots of practice in late starts with TT members who were helping, SA runners who didn’t make their start, and their own members who started after their official start times. Looking good for the nationals.

It was a “testing time” for many – with the prototype results stands (built by John Nieuwenhoven) being used for live results for the first time, and Aylwin Lim’s “cup return” also being used by those who took a drink after their run.P1000743

With the camping at Bri Glen, this was a wonderful opportunity to return to the bush, enjoy some quality orienteering and relish time with great orienteers for company.

Thanks to TT members for their assistance, and to OHOC and Peter Mayer (controller) for your efforts assisting.
