Alan Mansfield reports ...
The NSW Championships have been run on some of the most complex and challenging terrain that a rogaine is ever likely to be held upon in NSW.
Two teams visited all of the controls! Rob Vincent and Shane Trotter finished by 0823 Sunday morning just in time for breakfast. Julie Quinn and Karl Perry-Strode finished at 1102 Sunday morning. Congratulations to them and everybody else who entered. We hope you had an adventure to remember.
If you have a tale to tell about your experience and or photographs, and would like to share them please send it to myself or the editor of the newsletter. The organising team will provide a longer report for the next newsletter due out early in November 2005.
