Hot weather at Wagga beach

Post date: Dec 3, 2017 11:02:13 AM

Izzy Hutchinson and Chantelle Dailey excelled in Event 2 of the Waggaroos Summer Series of orienteering conducted last Thursday evening.

Starting from Wagga Beach participants had a 30 minute time limit to find the answers to as many questions as possible about the locality. Points were earned for correct answers and lost for exceeding the time limit. Questions included identifying specific information on plaques and signs, the brands on specific padlocks, and when the amphitheatre opened.

Although the warm evening reduced participation the Beach was a very pleasant assembly area and provided the chance of a dip to cool off. Most participants focused on answering the questions on the area north of the Wollundry Lagoon.

Briohny Seaman continued her good form from event 1 finishing with time to spare and amassing a very good 115 points. Izzy Hutchinson and Chantelle Dailey participated as a pair and did outstandingly well to also score 115 points. Because Briohny finished in a slightly faster time she was declared the winner but Izzy and Chantelle won the handicap honours.

Bob Moore had a solid run to finish third just ahead of John Oliver and Trent Seaman.

Event 3 in the Summer Series of orienteering will start a 6pm from the playground in Maher St Tolland, opposite Martin St. Newcomers welcome. All that is needed is a watch.
