12 March 2017 - SHOO HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES STARTS
This year's winter series in the bush around the Southern Highlands got off to a great start on Sunday with our first event on the Soapy Flat map. Val Hodsdon set some challenging courses that caught some off guard after a summer of easy running around the suburbs.
Val's report and a link to the results for download can be found on our Results page. Results and future events can also be found on Eventor.
Thanks to Angus for the photos.
Details of future events can be found on the Events page and the series flier is available here: Highlands Forest Series flier.
18 Feb 2017 - SUMMER SATURDAYS FINAL ROUND 7 - STORMS ALL AROUND
While thunderstorms were reported to be causing havoc nearby, the weather at Camden for the final SHOO Summer Sats event was almost ideal for running. It was cool and the threatened rain held off until the last runner was in and all controls collected.
The results and Peter's report can be found in the linked PDF file.
11 Feb 2017 - WE SURVIVED SUMMER SATURDAYS ROUND 6
A record hot February day in Camden greeted us at Harrington Grove for the penultimate Summer Saturday for 2017. A hardy group of runners came and conquered the atrocious conditions. It was still 40 when we headed out to collect the controls!
The results and Garry's report can be found in the linked PDF file. The progress point score after 6 rounds is here. Results and future events can be found on Eventor.
The next, and last, event in the series will be held on Saturday 18 February at Onslow Park, Cawdor Rd, Camden.
4 Feb 2017 - SHOO SUMMER SATURDAYS ROUND 5
Another very hot evening for a run around Picton Botanic Gardens on the Antill View map. This was Natt and Kristie Carroll's first attempt at setting courses and by all reports did a marvellous job. Only Angus managed to get around all the controls but there were some very good scores from other competitors.
The results and Natt's report can be found in the linked PDF file. The progress point score after 5 rounds is here. Results and future events can be found on Eventor.
The next event in the series will be held on Saturday 11 February on the Harrington Grove map. The assembly area will be the lawn out the front of the Harrington Grove Country Club, Forestgrove Drive, Harrington Grove.
7 Jan 2017 - SHOO SUMMER SATURDAYS START
This year's Summer Saturdays got off to a flying start with 37 starters for a run around the Harrington Park West map. Neville tried a new area to start from beside the lake in the shade (which was appreciated). Locals conspired to make life difficult but Neville overcame new fences and flooded walkways to give us a great event.
The results and Neville's report can be found in the linked PDF file. Results and future events can be found on Eventor.
17 Dec 2016 - CLUB CHRISTMAS PARTY AND PRESENTATIONS
This year our Christmas Party and Presentation will be held at the Shedden's place - 56 Boardman Road, Bowral.
The program for the afternoon will be: nibbles from 1pm, presentation from 1.30, BBQing and socialising from 2pm. Perhaps a bit of orienteering. If you can’t get there by 1.00, don’t worry, the BBQ will be fired up into the late afternoon.
23 Oct 2016 - CLUB RELAYS - ANOTHER INOVATIVE EVENT FROM SUE AND PAUL
Our traditional club relays were held at Warragamba Recreation Reserve on Sunday 23 October. As usual they were set and organised by Paul and Sue. And as usual they came up with another interesting way to run a relay.
Partners were drawn and a decision had to be made - course A or course B. They were both roughly parallel and about the same length.
For the results and a report from Lyn click on this link: Relay results and report (PDF).

8 May 2016 - HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES #2 FOR 2016
How else would you spend Mothers Day but run around the bush in the rain! It was very good weather for a run - the rain was more a nuisance than a soaking. This also meant we had most of the Lake Alexandra park to ourselves. It was very pleasing to see 34 competitors turn up with many of them being first timers.
Angus and Ruth set a very demanding event for those who chose to attack the hard courses but there was always the Moderate and Easy for those who did not want too much challenge.
A full report is now available on the results page. The results are available through Eventor or the following links: Results; Splits.
10 April 2016 - HIGHLANDS FOREST SERIES #1 FOR 2016

20 March 2016 - METRO #1 FOR 2016
The individual results and splits are in. There will be a brief report and team results to come.
Our expert MetrO planner, Stephan Wagner, has once again made great use of this excellent area. There were some tired runners after having to struggle up several hills. But the views were worth it.
