Yep, OA Board workshop in Sydney on Sat, rogaine 9-3 Sun, 8:30pm flight home that night. Don't suppose there's any chance that NSWRA have started printing maps on waterproof paper yet?

Checked with organiser. Quote: The maps are "water resistant" or the correct term "aqueous sealant"

The forecast for Sunday is potentially interesting, so this may be put to the test.

The maps are on semi-waterproof paper - withstand a sprinkle of water but not immersion.
Gloss 150GSM with a sealer on both sides.
This is from the actual setter; the previous response from the organiser. I thought Blair you could do better with the weather than what seems to be on offer. However Newcastle is running 2 MTBO events this weekend. One of the maps to be used is viewed as mud wrestling on wheels - haven't had a dry event there yet.

At least QBIII was great weatherwise (and in many other respects). As one of the original 'explorers' it was very satisfying to see Bush n Beach, albeit with some help, run a really enjoyable and successful 3 day event.

Is there more to B&B than just the Woolford clan? :)

Definitely! Bruce Meder and Julie Irvine (about 45, contemporary of Jenny Enderby/Anderson - originally from Central Coast) and Gavin Rayward (ex Newcastle) are the leading lights. Gavin and Julie are Grafton based and working together in Street/Park area there. Coffs now has a couple of bush type maps + 3-5 urban. The Bom Bom map also used for MTBO.
But good solid base of beginners.Several school maps (maybe 8-10) which rockman and another mapped about 3 years ago. Only real disappointment was absolutely no tv coverage. We usually get good support in country areas, especially for the 1st events. Getting good support from Northern Tablelands too.
