Merridee Orienteering  Results

 Saturday 24 March 2007

The Wallaringa Club ran an amazingly successful event. Estimates of potential participants ranged from 30-60 and we were pleasantly surprised when an even higher number was recorded.
Most of the work was done by Frank Tomas and Peter Kreminski, who found the hardest part was putting out controls the day before the event in temperatures in the high 30s.
Fortunately, the night before the event, an almost miraculous half inch of rain fell in the area, the morning was cool, the sun was shining and most participants enjoyed themselves. Other Wallaringans chipped in to run the event including Dorothy and Jim Casanova. Thanks also to the Yalangans, who supplied equipment that the Wallaringans no longer possess.
