Big Foot Sprints Results

Splits (AttackPoint) |  Overall | Eventor

A great end to 2020, albeit a few months late. Top planning and organising by Mounty and Andrew who took the lockdown delay in their stride.

Metro League 2020 titles in Div 1 & Div 2

Big Foot took out both the Division 1 and Division 2 titles at the final Metro League of an odd season held at Landsowne.

For the div 1 team, this was the 4th consecutive title, the run of 6 titles from 2009-2014 now looks under threat, with a few grizzly veterans still in the team from that era. For the div 2 team, their wins seem to come every 3 years and again the team was a blend of youth and not-so-youth.

Falnash Frolic wraps up the season with (almost) no orienteering

What should have been the final state league of the year became the only state level bush orienteering event of the year on the first weekend of November. Despite the dearth of orienteering a relatively poor turnout from other clubs turned out to run some great courses planned by promising youngster Ewan Shingler. 

The event can be reviewed in LiveLox here.

Ski-O 2020 - Cancelled

Ski-O is cancelled for 2020 - the Nordic shelter at Perisher is unavailable for use as a race HQ which leaves the logistics pretty broken.

There is snow however, so we hope to post some virtual courses on the date of the original scheduled weekend.

There are a number of Covid-19 based new rules in place, please familiarise yourseof with them if you are going skiing in the NSW national parks this year.

Big Fat Quiz chaos

Big Foot's answer to University Challenge saw more post finish audits than a Sydney-Hobart. With Aoife Rothery taking line honours, a clinical investigation by auditors Ernst and Eric found that several questions were marked incorrectly.

Thanks to competitors and question setters.
