TSSSA Rogaine Results Update

Sorry about this, it has been pointed out to me that the winning Intermediate boys team was from NPBHS not Spotswood. This gives NPBHS a clean sweep of the boys first places and makes Boys High and Girls High equal on the points table. Hopefully this is the last update.
Latest results are here

TSSSA Rogaine Championships 2014

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the event. I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who gave lots of time in the organisation of it. Especially Jeremy and Ted for putting out controls, Annie for running all the administration and Len for the event setup. Also Tom Spencer for getting in controls. Well here are the results. Please let me know if I've made some mistakes and I'll do my best to correct them.

Congratulations to all the participants (954 of you). The winners completed the course in just under 2 hours, with a couple of other teams hot on their heels. A big thanks to the myriad of helpers including orienteering members, St Johns who were kept busy with many minor injuries and Search & Rescue teams who wore off their dinner looking for a couple of lost teams. SAR also broke out the search plan to find the 2 teams who did not return on time, but thankfully they were eventually located on their bus half way home.
PS. The food helpers were really impressed with the kids fabulous manners and patience.
