Alex Shepherd

Alex took part in the World Police and Fire Games in New York City. He was accompanied by Lenore on the trip.

The orienteering event was held at West Point, and it was the hardest run I’ve ever done. The forest was dark and dense, and very rocky and steep. I had trouble reading the map at times. They are a little different to Aussie maps. However, and there’s a story in it, I managed to get a Silver in Grand Master Section D. I also got a Silver in the darts, the Open Men – Cricket – Doubles, losing the Gold Medal Game 3 sets to 1.
