AWOC increases lead with home win at Nail Can Hill


Albury had another solid win in Interclub Challenge #5 at Nail Can Hill South, an area not used for some years.


The dominating features on the map were the parallel contour lines all spaced about 2mm apart, indicating a steep side slope. Consequently, courses involved several excellent exercises in contouring, a decent climb or two, and some fun descents. Dropping too low meant more climb to correct; staying too high often resulted in not seeing the feature from above.


Deb Davey was the only Waggaroo course winner with a strong effort on the 4.3km Hard course, holding off Albury's Tony Perrott. Jack Janetzki also had an excellent run but had to settle for fourth place, albeit less than a minute from second place. Alex Davey, Tom Janetzki and John Oliver all managed placings in their respective courses but overall AWOC had quality and quantity on the day, eventually winning 71:31.


After 5 events AWOC now have a strong 250:195 lead in the Interclub Challenge.

Visitors too strong in Livingstone NP

A strong turnout from both clubs ensured a good tussle but congratulations to AWOC on a solid "away" win.

Given the constraints imposed by NPWS concerns over unexploded ordinances, Jack set some excellent challenges – as if getting up and down those hills was not challenging enough! At least the competitors saw some parts of the forest that are rarely visited.

AWOC outnumbered and generally out-orienteered Waggaroos on the Long and Short courses; Waggaroos Deb Davey’s excellent winning effort on the Short Hard being an exception and keeping the home-side in touch points-wise. Liz Wood and Rob Simmons took 2nd and 3rd for Albury.

The Long hard saw the AWOC trifecta of Peter Mousley, Matt Flower and Fab Andreoni all well ahead of Wagga’s Alex Davey and John Oliver.

It was close on the Moderate course – in numbers and points – and although Waggaroos Stuart Young had fastest time, AWOC just won the course thanks to Josh Roy and Nick Mousley taking 2nd and 3rd places (no points awarded to Murphy family on this course because this was their second course).

Waggaroos managed to win the Easy course with Tom Janetzki, Nathan and Hayden Earl and Ryder Seaman filling the placings.

AWOC won a close encounter 53:48 and after 4 events lead the Interclub Challenge 179:164.

Rocky Hill Interclub, 20th June 2021

As if the profusion and confusion of rock features on the aptly named Rocky Hill map were not enough, getting through the long grasses also proved to be quite a challenge.

Although outnumbered Waggaroos filled the first three places to take the honours on the 4.6km Hard course. The course featured a pivot control and traversed the hill

north-south a number of times to avoid too much climb.

AWOC won the 2.8km Hard course through the efforts of Liz Wood & Rick Armstrong taking the minor placings after WaggaRoos Briohny Seaman.

Julie Gooding splitting AWOC’s Josh Roy and Emma Flower and weight of numbers helped WaggaRoos narrowly win the 2.7km Moderate course.

Weight of numbers allowed Waggaroos to take all points on the Easy course although it was won by the Hinchcliffe group, regular walkers on the hill, who just happened to

come by and decided to enter.

In the end Waggaroos won the day 64:31

After 3 events AWOC still lead 126:116

Mother's Day at Pommy

On Mother’s Day it was lovely to see Chontelle and Deb take the honours in their respective courses at Pomingalarna.

Wonderful to have Niam Airey and his family attend. Niam attended the Riverina Schools Orienteering Day mid-week and enjoyed it so much he brought the family along today.

Setting his first bush event, Phil did an excellent job with most legs on the Hard courses needing some serious thought about route choice, and the easier courses striking a good balance between leading the participants around and inducing them to think about how to get there. And a key feature of the events was trying to avoid becoming entangled in the massive spider webs that stretched between the trees.

Albury comfortable winners in first Interclub at Chiltern

A very wet forest and steady rain throughout did not dampen enthusiasm at Wallace's Gully. It was lovely spur-gully terrain that was remarkably open and beautiful to run through. The wet conditions did mean that not much wildlife was seen – even the orb-weaving spiders were sheltering and out of sight. It was wonderful to catch up with our Albury colleagues after so long – even if they did thump us 47:23.

Waggaroos who attended acquitted themselves well: Jack Janetzki starred on the Short Red course winning by almost 15 minutes.
