Northern Territory Orienteering Championships

The Top End Orienteers (TEO) put on a terrific 3 day event at the beginning of the month. I was the top ranking Uringan in all I was the only one of us there. (This is a corollary to my long term strategy of orienteering until there is no one left alive in my age class.) The good news for me though was that I actually came first in my age class in the sprint around Charles Darwin University - the 'practice' run around Newcastle University as part of QBIII was clearly good training.
TEO provided not only orienteering, but also airplanes, history, music and great food. The photos tell the story. (Photo above thanks to TEO.)
