Bill Wins Big QB Competiton

Queens Birthday 3-day 2016, Horowhenua

Link to Full results.

In spite of course planning duties today, Bill Edwards was OHV's best runner at the 3-day event on the weekend. He won M40 on Sat and Sun before heading out to place controls for today. Other wins were scored by Lynette Porter (W40B Sat), Jill Dalton (W70 Sat), Sophie Smith (JGB Sun, Mon), Lisa Caulfield (W21A Sun), and Gavin Scott (M70, Mon).

The weekend was a cooperation between Wgtn OC and OHV, with WOC providing the overall management including results, while OHV contributed volunteers over the three days, and the map and courses for Day 3. The map was a complete re-work of the coastal part of "A Map Called Wanda" now named Walda. Bill Edwards planned the courses, and Susan Edwards was the controller. There were 80 controls and 7 marked routes on Day 3, probably more on the other days!

Several competitons rested on the results. World Ranking points for elite orienteers, in which complex statistics enables comparison with athletes all round the world. A test match between Australia and NZ elites, with junior elites added for the first time. The final round of the Superseries. A regional schools competition. Trials for a school team to compete in Australia in September. And not forgetting our regional WOA Championship in the Middle (Sat) and Long (Sun) distances. Our region is the southern North Island, including Taranaki and Hawkes Bay.

But right now here's a summary of the OHV individual results. Bear in mind the event attracted 450 people including Australians and especially large junior fields. SBA (Senior Boys A), SBB, SGA, SGB, JGA, JGB, JBA, JBB replaced M/W-14 and M/W-16 so that classes aligned with those used in the Sec Sch competitions.

Kudos to those members who achieved placings, considering the size of the competition. WOA Champions are shown with an asterisk.
