Event Report: MetrO 4 Bannister Creek

Saturday, 27 November 2021

Ferndale Park, Dampier Way, Ferndale

Although it was one of the hottest days we've had so far in this MetrO season there was a good turn out for the Bannister Creek event. The trees around the creek and Canning River offered some great shade, and some tricky map reading led to a few people cooling off in the un-crossable river. It was good to see some newcomers, with a few making it into the top results!

Noel Schoknecht was the fastest on the Short course, with Ruben Claessens not far behind him and Jenny Sansom the first woman. Matt Seward had the winning time on the Medium course and Ron Marcus was second with Liisa Hirvonen winning the ladies class.
