Event Report: NavDash 5 Russells Gully


Sunday 9th June 2019

Some 53 competitors braved the weather and came and enjoyed the Russell Gully event set by first time setter Sarah Richards, who is in the middle of sitting her Year 11 exams. The rain added to the challenge with slippery rock surfaces and water in the creeks. The long course included a map flip to keep the course interesting and on the short course half the branches has blown off the dead tree in the strong winds. The rain held off an most competitors managed to get run with only a light shower.

Special thanks to Russel Wade and Carol Brownlie for helping out with putting the controls out and Carol and Ken Brownlie for organising and towing the caravan. 

Thanks to the long list of helpers:

Instruction: Russel Wade and Carol Brownlie.

After a few hiccups (car trouble) registration was provided by Melinda (McTeam)

Controls collectors: Carol Brownlie, Ken Brownlie, Russel Wade, Shaun Richards, Mason Eves, Sasha Eves, Sarah Richards and Michelle Martin.
