Saturday 9th January
After a scorching week the weather cooled down somewhat to allow the Shelley event to go ahead with 72 competitors / groups participating. The course was set by junior Kate Braid with good feedback from the short course competitors who noted that all first four finishes took different routes for their 7 controls. Duncan Sullivan was first finisher on the short course with Ken Brownlie second who was closely followed by his grandson Archie Brownlie in 3rd. First female finisher on the short course was Rosalie McCauley followed by Janet Fletcher and Amy Dufty.
For the medium course, winner of the female competition was Marlene Flett with Liam Dufty easily winning the male competition and was first overall for the medium course. Ricky Thackray won the long course and Rachel West was first in the female competition.
As always, many thanks must go to the volunteers who assisted at the event including Rosalie McCauley, Dave Pass, Wendy Hobley, Emma Plummer, Graham Braid, Ceri Pass, Vanessa Smith, Robert Boekelaar, Jason Simpson, Georgie and Rod Russell, Jenny and John Major, Heike Behrbohm and the Coleman Family.
