Australian Champs Carnival, South Australia
Several club members made the journey to SA to compete in the Carnival in late Sept, early October. The venue for all the events was the beautiful hills surrounding the Barossa Valley.
Rob and Helen Edmonds along with many other orienteers members took the opportunity to visit Kangaroo Island. It’s amazing how many cars, trucks and people that can be loaded onto these catamaran ferries. The Parkard Car Club loaded up with their amazingly kept vintage and classic cars.
Alan Watts visited the Flinders Ranges and checked out water filled Lake Eyre. Helen Edmonds and David Lotty finished 3rd in the SA Champs, David Lotty was also 3rd in Australian Long Distance Champs. Most members were happy with their performances in fast but sometimes tricky terrain. Joyce Rowlands and Sue Healy had a close tussle in their class, while Robyn Sunderland, Alan Watts, Rob Edmonds and Kevin Maloney had promising performances.
