Event report: NavDash 4 Hale School

Sunday, 16 April 2023

Hale School, Wembley Downs

It unexpectedly turned out to be a beautiful day for a run in the luscious school grounds of Hale. Lots of twists and turns kept competitors on their toes. We were very appreciative of Hale School for being very supportive of the event and helping make it enjoyable for all. The NavDash had 96 starters and 106 courses were run. It was great to have such age diversity in attendance including some first timers.

The fastest navigator on the long was Sandro Truttman, with Noel Schoknecht on the short and Chip Lundstrom on the easy course.

A big thank you goes to the event organisers, Helen Bailey, Anthea Feaver and Tracy Burns. Thanks also to the instructors - Nicole Davis, Richard Matthews, and Mike Howe; the control collectors - Liisa Hirvonen, Sandra Tarr, Isaac Madden, Duncan Sullivan, Jennifer Binns, Tony Simpkins, and Phil Taylor; and those who assisted with setting up and then packing up - Rosemary Kullmann, Moreen Cox, and Paul and Josie Burns.
