The Paddocks Wrapup

on .

CaptureThe event at The Paddocks on 1st April was held in ideal (cool but dry) weather for orienteering.

 After a wet night, the weather cleared, and the four courses that Jeffa had set were a great puzzle for those who attended.  The tricky wetlands area, and the new out of bounds area (discovered in the previous week) were fun to negotiate, and Jeffa’s tricky planning had us all thinking hard.

Thanks to Tintookies members who assisted to make this a success for the 52 runners.

The brief AGM was held at 12noon, where we duly elected Rob Tucker as President for another year, along with Andrew Kennedy (Treasurer) to be ably assisted by Brodie Dobson Keefe this year. Erica Diment will continue as Secretary, Robin Uppill as Technical Officer,  Zita Sankauskas as Schools Coordinator, Bridget Anderson as Coaching Coordinator, Olivia Sprod as Publicity Officer and Frank Burden as Newsletter Editor. 

The Orienteering Season is now well underway.
