Alexa says: " I've now been through and checked your queries on the provisional results; I've also double-checked the results for the top three teams in each category.  Now everyone should have a result, and hopefully it's a result that you're happy with!

I should mention that the times in the results sheets are nonsense - this is because we didn't use the computer at the event, and I wasn't able to put in the correct times later on at home.  Any late penalties are factored into the scores.

I have mailed out the maps to those who entered then elected not to come with the rain.  If you do the event some time before the end of April and time yourselves, we'll add your result to the website, but we will list it separately to the others, because I think that fine weather will give you a fair advantage! 

If you have lost anything, please let me know - Gill took home a rain jacket and I've got a mug which was left behind."

Event description

The minigaine was held in quite acceptable conditions in the end, as long as you didn't mind getting your feet (or, if you fell into a big hole like certain NSWRA secretaries, your entire body) wet.

After its success last year the 3-hr Minigaine was back again in 2011! This year, it was held on Sunday 20th March in the Lane Cove area. The area had a great mix of bushland tracks and local streets and our intrepid course setter Ted set a swagful of top-notch control locations.

To steal a quote used on the local radio recently- "Rogaining: it's just like 'orienteering on steroids" - and this event sure was. We used an orienteering base map, so for anyone who has been doing the Wednesday night summe rseries runs, just imagine 4 or 5 maps combined - YEEEHAAA!

Of course, there was plenty of opportunity for a calm and sedate stroll around the area, visiting the odd control point at your leisure, and stopping for a nice cup of tea at a scenic spot too!

It was held in the afternoon with a rolling start from 12:30 - 3pm followed by a BBQ from around 5:00pm. The NSWRA AGM was alsoheld afterwards at 6:30pm.
