Paddy’s Pond draws a small, wet crowd

Seventeen brave orienteers tackled rarely explored sections of the Paddy’s Pond map on the rainiest day of the year last Wednesday.

Seventeen brave orienteers tackled rarely explored sections of the Paddy’s Pond map on the rainiest day of the year last Wednesday.

The downpour even kept the bugs away.

The fastest time on the intermediate course was Lee Hawkings in 45:14, followed closely by Colin Abbott in 47:05. On the long advanced course, Brent Langbakk was the fastest with a time of 47:37.

The fastest women on the long advanced was Justine Scheck with a time of 79:30, followed closely by Pam James in a time of 81:54.

Good luck to Justine Scheck who is competing at the World Junior Orienteering Championships in Lithuania from July 3 to July 8 with the Junior National Team.
