Hillary Challenge results

Congratulations to our 2017 Hillary Challenge Champions from New Plymouth Girls and Boys High Schools. An amazing effort to win all 3 components of the race - team challenges, expedition and multisport race. Great results from Waimea College/Sacred Heart Girls (our very own Tayla Simpson) in 2nd place, and Thames High in 3rd.
And a great write up in the Daily News

Te Henui results 7 May 2017

An incredible turnout of 68 groups today which pushed our map stocks to the limit. Thanks for setting some great courses Graham, you really shook us out of the sprint mode we'd been in over summer!! with a few gnarly control sites on the red course.
Results are here. Control 87 didn't work for the yellow course. Your results all show as mp (= mispunch) and I can't fix that, sorry. If you look at the second line of your name that gives the final time taken e.g. Thomas & Stephen took 16:28

World Masters Orienteering results

CONGRATULATIONS to Carey and Karl for their podium finishes.

Carey Nazzer   W55 1st/120 - Long, 3rd in sprint
Karl Dravitzki  M35 2nd/48 - long,   4th in sprint

And Jay Paterson W55 44th/120 - long,  27th in sprint
Annie Sanderson  W60 83rd/128 - long, 30th in sprint
Nick Collins         M65 15th/162 - long,  16th in sprint

These are all excellent results as you can see by the impressively huge numbers in each 5 year age bracket. [By comparison in a normal NZ Champs there would normally be 20-30 people in a 10 year age grouping.]
