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.

Place getters in the Sprint champs:

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.

Breaking news from http://o-news.cz:

V juniorkách zvítězila superfavoritka své kategorie Veronika Kubínová, která z loňska obhajuje 4 zlaté medaile. A při úvodní disciplíně všem ukázala, že i letos si do Litvy přivezla skvělou formu. Druhou Australanku Lucy Mackie zdolala o 1:59, třetí Ruska Uliana Sukholovskaya měla ztrátu ještě o další minutu vyšší. Na velkou bednu za šesté místo vystoupala i Vilma Králová. Do nejlepší desítky se vešla i devátá Veronika Grycová.

Great weather for Ski-O

Swiss skier Christoph Gasche (pictured below) took out the long course at this year's ski-O event ahead of Canadian skier/orienteer Caelan McLean with Victorian orienteer Warwick Davis just bagging 3rd place. A great turnout of 41 people enjoyed a beautiful day in the alps which followed a couple of very wild and woolly days.


Jukola 2018 preparation starts here

There is a video of the 7th leg mass start with go-pro and camera footage, but this is funnier:


Ali and Eoin rock the rocks

Alistair George had a good crack at positioning himself for JWOC selection with a solid 3rd place in M20E at the Australian 3 days at Wagga, whilst Eoin Rothery overcame a 3 minutes deficit entering the final event, a sprint at Charles Sturt Uni to win his class outright, but his time for JWOC may be past.

A bunch of other feet did varyingly, looks like the longest leg time any of us managed was about 40 minutes. Jock Davis, Greg Barbour, Jo Parr and Lyra all had their moments in the sun winning an individual day, but ended the weekend badgeless for one reason or another.

Thanks to the Mackie family for putting on a great event - Hamish was the planner, so blame him for your fun.
