Rongotai Rogaine

Southern Bays 25 Mar 10

This rogaine was planned by 15yo Alex Nicholson, and he made a really good job of it. There were nearly 60 controls from Seatoun to Island Bay, and from Evans Bay to the south coast. Alex is actually pretty cunning - it is a school assignment for which he will get NCEA credits. The skills required to set up something like this are not just navigation but include project planning, event management and safety. There were 66 participants but see below**

Tailpiece. Bill Edwards got held up in the downtown traffic and started late; but did the full 3 hours. He was checked in (after most of you went home) but didn't furnish an answer sheet. In fact he didn't write anything down because his right hand (his WRITE hand) was bandaged up, the bones in his little finger were shattered by a difficult catch in a cricket game. Bill has furnished his route and this unofficial count is 1660! Which is not surprising if you have been rogaining or orienteering for a while. Bill is in fact the current Mens 40 World Orienteering Champion in the sprint distance.
