Perfect foreshore conditions for Ada Ryan Gardens event

Thursday, 22 May 2014

The street event held with the Ada Ryan Gardens as s base was enjoyed by over 70 orienteers on the 30th March. The shady trees were a good place under which to relax after the event, the perfect place for a BBQ and cool refreshment  especially on such on a warm day.

Several children took advantage of the Ada Ryan Gardens course with Zali Munday completing her course with the fastest time of 12:59 minutes, Olivia Clark a few minutes behind in 16:00 minutes and young 7yo Nemayah completing her course in 28:30 minutes. A number of family groups also completed the course around the Gardens with the children enjoying the challenge of finding the controls.

Alan Holland was the only individual to complete the short 2.7km course, but this was popular with many of the family groups too.The medium course of 3.9km was the course with the most competitors with Greg Hancock the fastest individual and Gary & Will Sheasby the fastest group. Two teams from a local youth groupo gave the medium course a go and we hope they enjoyed the experience. Jason Mundaywas yet again the fastest in the 5.2km long course with four other competitors also completing the course.
