For those who weren’t there, I’m sorry.

For those who were, wasn’t that the most fantastic event ever?

It had it all - a beautiful open valley for the hashhouse, challenging course, regent honeyeaters, plenty of bush-covered hills, an excellent map, lovely open spurs / gullies / creeks, huge wombat burrows, delicious food, just a few trails, hopping roos, spectacular sandstone pagodas, all night cafe, a bit of scratchy stuff, some decent sized cliffs - what more could you want?

Congratulations to all the winners, who came from far and wide for this great event.

We are keen to collect some photos from the event, so if you have some you can email them to the webmaster webmaster@nswrogaining.org and he will add them to the web site.

Thanks to all involved, especially Gill Fowler, Jess Baker, Michael Watts, Sonia Kupina, Alan Mansfield, Anita Bickle, Russell Rigby, Enfield Scouts, John and Robin Cameron, Rob Vincent, Ian Dempsey, David Stone, Matt Palmer, Pam and Bob Montgomery, Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Squad.

Message from our Equipment Officer: (Mark Vonhuben)

I would like to thank Alan Mansfield, Mike Hotchkis and John Havranek for towing the association's equipment trailers to and from the Oz Champs. The sport of rogaining only exists because of its volunteers.

[and thanks to Mark too, for organising all that stuff!]
