You and Cath both ran past your #1a (even now I can't distinguish the "pond" on the map).

Did Keith come back OK ?

Yeah, 1 looked easy on the map,but then when I looked at the description I thought, oh dear, they've hidden it in a bush.

Keith was fine; he couldn't find 184 andspent a long time looking for it. Then he skipped another couple near the end to get back in time to see his mother in law.

I have Keith's details to send you, he wants to but an SI stick.
Jul 27, 2014 12:34 PM # 
He's hooked !

Yeah, nothing like spending 2 hours in thick scratchy bush and not finding 3 or 4 controls on your course. Addictive.

We don't have any XL left, not sure a L would fit.

I'm with Milo, I want to see the splits and the RANKING points... Will grilla get got ? Can I get a break on O-ing ?

A twenty minute turnaround in a week should help your cause!

Mmmm - it just squeezed into my counting scores, but with same score as the one it knocked out. Milo improved by 2 points.
Jul 29, 2014 6:50 AM # 
Phew! I've still got 23 points to throw away.
Jul 29, 2014 7:18 AM # 
Wow. That was my worst scoring run in the last year. Hall of mirrors time I think.

Splits would be nice to see just how much time I really threw away in muppetry, I think I know the answer but confirmation would be nice.

Number of races around Sydney that don't spit out splits amazes me, need to go back to the old 30 lap watch :)

The word Garingal springs to mind when it comes to a lack of splits.

Well if people have kept their printouts we can enter them....
Jul 31, 2014 10:25 AM # 
I'll see if I can get (all of) them

I have contacts, lets just put it like that. Maybe not to the big man, but enough to get the job done - see

Well those confirmed suspicions of Muppetry
