Orienteering race (JIRC's Relay ) 38:22 [4] 3.5 km (10:58 / km) +110m 9:28 / km

Me James Alison and John Ockended

dreadful relay everyone went out too fast ! and everyone messed up the first control was tempted to go off my own way but the whole pack seemed to be going one direction which is stupid of i need to learn too not get distracted by people on relays especially on 1st legs! after mistake at 1 got back into the leading pack, catching up Joe woodley, zac field etc. proabably in the top 5 then me chris and dane all started running across a long marsh when they had a different gaffle which i new because we checked with each other, i tried aiming off but i was with them for too longg befroe aiming off so a bad final route choice ( 4 minute mistake) this cost me a lot) was in about 10m from the control but too low down . came back 15th out of 30. James made a lot of mistakes but got a few places back, 13th then john had a okay run and got back to 9th. Overall a GOOD weekend catching up with everyone and NW squad won overall! :)

Event: Jircs 2011

Orienteering race (JIRC's) 53:10 [5] 7.5 km (7:05 / km) +160m 6:24 / km

Been on this terrain two or three times didn't really help as this was back in year 7/8 when i was on oranges.Decent and fairly clean race! made up to about 2-3 minutes mistakes stopped short on about 2-3 controls. we were like running in 28 degrees of heat which seemed to drain me a bit and slow me down! the race was technical and physical in both aspects (good planning from chris) was first starter and set the pace, was good as i could concentrate on my own race and had no one to distract me! watched everyone come through after me...didn't think it would be fast to get me top 3 but came 3rd in the end which i'm really happy with ! happy with the race stratergy i went through with richard about starting slow and getting faster, as well as the reading the map more closley as the dunes were more complex! good individual and first out of all 1st year m16 :)

Orienteering race (summer evening event) 34:52 [4] 4.2 km (8:18 / km) +230m 6:31 / km

pretty decent race went off well good runing speed! navigated well. caught Mike on leg 8 left him on leg 10! two of the controls were put in the wrong place as this was confirmed when everyone got back :L one was just put on a random boulder, the other to low down on the marsh. Good area though, mix of fell and woods, came 1st. Buzzing for JIRCS ! lets hope it goes well . not gonna go out too fast, going to gradually build up my speed around the course I think to ensure everything goes well!
