Lucy Mackie named Orienteering Australia athlete of the year

Lucy Mackie added to her silverware collection at the weekend despite being unable to compete as she recovers from pre-season surgery. Orienteering Australia named Lucy as the athlete of the year following her silver-medal winning performance at the Junior World MTBO champs in 2017.

Yay for Lucy, who has been having some surgery to repair damage done to her shoulder through too many podium hugs, such as this disturbing incident at the end of the World MTBO champs:

State League 2, Snows Hill

Thanks for coming, heat, wind and dust nothwithstanding.

Half the organisers only got home between 8 & 9 after an epic day, so apologies for the late results.

Note: the RouteGadget bug is now fixed smiley so if you hadn't got it working before, try again.

Thanks to the Big Foot team for all their help today and also Maggie, Savanna and Gareth for control collecting help.

To anyone who got very lost - join the club. The planner and controller both got lost whilst setting and a group of three with over 100 years orienteering experience between them managed to get lost while trying to check a control this arvo.

Special thanks to Simon, Eoin and Cath who both visited the area on multiple occasions. It is a 3 hour drive from Sydney, so that is a lot of their time invested.

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.
