After a hard day pooring over strategic plans, legal liabilities & funding proposals, the weather gods relented allowing the end of day OA annual conference orienteering event to be held in fine but humid conditions.
On offer were a series of 26 control sites around the Australian National University with multiple choice answers rather than the more normal control flags. Choice was between 30min or 45min score events.
A (small) choice of lollies was available to finishers. Even one of the spectators, a young Master Morris, partook in the post event sweets no doubt spoiling the lovingly prepared dinner awaiting him at home.
Results are listed below in the order competitors crossed the finish line.
