State League - Snow Hills, Sunday 18th March

Information & Program

Round 2 of the NSW State League is scheduled for Snow Hills on Sunday 18th March. This will also be round 2 of the ACT league.

Round 1 of the NSW State League will be staged by the ACT the previous day (Saturday 17th March) as part of the ACT league round 1.

ACT Competitors

ACT league competitors can enter their age class as per ACT championships, or a harder age group.  NSW State Leagues offer a range of courses that don't map directly to the ACT course structure. If you really want to run a course that is different to the courses available by age group (see table below), then enter the corresponding colour course like a normal ACT league event. Note the following NSW classes that correspond to certain ACT courses:

  • Blue (ACT) is Very Easy (NSW)
  • Green (ACT) is Easy

Orange, Red 1 - Red 7 (ACT) will correspond to NSW course Hard 1 - Hard 7 at the event,  special classes Red 1 - Red 8 have been added.

There is only one orange course.

NSW Competitors

Do not enter the special classes Red 1 - Red 7 if you want to score state league points.

If you are using one or more NSW government Active Kids voucher(s) for State League, please enter as normal and advise the organiser of which entries/entry it applies to. You will be refunded for those entries by the organiser who will co-ordinate use of the voucher with ONSW. In the event that you have attempted to double-dip and claim the family discount too, then the refund will be adjusted appropriately. This only applies to State League 1, events in the ACT are not part of this scheme.

And we are back online


OK, so only a couple of people noticed that the BF site was down, but quite a few more noticed that the Big Pink rankings were offline. A mistake by that fool Andy Simpson while renaming the domain caused all sorts of grief. In the end we have moved to a new hosting server which happily solves the original problem he was working on and has some bonus features for hosting.

Main improvment: now the site(s) are accessible via https rather than http.

Feet dig gold at Hill End

The Australian Orienteering champs carnival is in full swing with Big Foot heavily involved in the organisation and competition. Despite the early morning starts to get the start up and running, some Big Feet have been performing well with a few taking out Australian titles.

Big Foot double win in Metroleague Finals 2017!

Big Foot got a rare double win in the Metroleague Finals at Boggabilla on 10 Sep 2017. The BF Division 1 team regained the trophy after a hard fought victory over Garingal, ending up level on points with WHO, but with a better points difference. BF were awarded the newly minted Frank Assenza trophy, named after Frank who was the NSW Metroleague coordinator for many years. This breaks the run of 2 victories by Garingal in 2015 and 2016, which followed 6 in a row by BF 2009-2014.
