Nillumbik Emus back-to-back at Victorian Teachers Games, September 2013

A Nillumbik Emus Orienteer, Rob Fell, took out the Open Men’s title at the Victorian Teachers games.¬†¬†Rob won the 60min score event by completing the course in just over 45min; almost 3min clear of second place.

This year’s competition was held in Ballarat and organised by Eureka Orienteers.

From Mt Clear Secondary college, competitors traversed the logged areas south of Canadian Forest and explored the newer Mt Clear estates.

Last year’s teachers’ games event was won by Robert Edmonds. Rob broke the drought after a run of 5 silver medals, in 2012.
