8 August 1999 The small turnout to this event was not surprising due to the very cold, windy, wet (hailing at times) weather. Many of the DNFs were due to the very cold conditions, infact several of the men returning to the finish had early signs of hypothermia. In hindsight, thermals/raincoat and gloves would have been advisable for most competitors. Those competitors that finished said that they enjoyed the well thought out courses. Unfortunately, the theft of a new start tent and all of the Tintookies result blocks, sometime the night before the event, put an extra dampener on the event (beyond the weather) from the organiserís perspective. Lesson learnt Ė donít leave any equipment unattended near any track or road at Mt Gawler.
