Macleans 3 Nov 11

Summer Series Results from Macleans 3/11/2011

We certainly had luck on our side tonight with a beautiful early evening which lasted until exactly official course closure time before the rain began to descend. Unfortunately that did mean we needed to start and collect controls a wee bit earlier than sometimes as darkness started to descend a bit early and a few people out late found reading a map in the bush was no longer possible. If some of you think driving across Auckland to an event takes a while you will be impressed to hear we had a group of about 15 come all the way from Thames for tonight's event. That shows true dedication! Also someone from Sweden!!

Next week the SummerNav event moves to WEDNESDAY, 9th November, starting at Michaels Ave Reserve, Michaels Ave, Ellerslie (Michaels Ave runs between the Ellerslie Penrose Highway and Marua Rd). The longest course will also visit the very pleasant Waiatarua reserve. If you have not yet bought a seasons ticket and would still like to you can still do so at an event or over the web. You can subtract off anything you have already paid in entry fees.

Auckland Interclub Relays - THIS SUNDAY, Hobsonville map. See AOC website for access details.  Club members, if you have not let your club know you are coming, please do so as soon as possible. We are wanting to make this a really fun finale to the year. There will be both a mixed long and mixed short event (with white, yellow and orange courses). It will also be followed by a series of fun events for the INAUGURAL CLUB CHALLENGE TROPHY (from tugs of war to a string course race) Rules yet to be decided!! Your club needs you!!! We have also hired a room at the cafe where there will be a BBQ or you can purchase food from the cafe. If you really don't want to take part in the relay you can still come along and run one of the courses. The relay teams are made up by random draw at 11.30am, followed by a briefing at 11.45 and the mass start of the first leg at 12.00noon. Starts for people not taking part in the relay from 12.30
Non club members, you are welcome to come along and run one of the courses, from 12.30. However, to ensure we have enough maps please email auckoc@hotmail.com to tell us you will be coming. Costs $12 adult, $6 student

The Great Ape Race  Thursday 17th November AUCKLAND ZOO!!
This race is on to save the critically endangered orangutan from extinction - and all profits from this Great Ape Race will go to the Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund to support the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP).
This fun evening event is a chance for you and your family, or friends or workmates to get a team together for an amazing race at the zoo - no experience required, just a commitment to team work! (but being an orienteer will certainly help!!) The 30-minute race for business/work teams and 45 minute race for family/social teams will get your heart pumping, your legs racing and push your brain into over-drive as you strategise to work out the fastest way to reach a number of destinations throughout the Zoo, answer questions correctly, and make it back to the Band Rotunda within the time limit. See http://www.lacticturkey.co.nz/GreatApeRace.htm for details

Please accept our apologies for a group of Course 3 runners (for their names and their times) for the Auckland Domain 27/10/2011 not being displayed in a email and on the club web site. This mistake is now rectified on the club web site.
