Club Christmas Picnic

Keep Sat 17th Dec free for the Bennelong Christmas Picnic at Manly Dam. We have booked Table 1, the closest to the entrance. Parking inside the reserve is free to local residents only. Others may like to drop off their gear then park back in King Street outside the Manly Hydraulics Laboratory (250m walk). Table 1 has shelter, power and electric barbecues. BYO food and drinks. Seating is limited so you may also like to bring a fold-up chair. There will be water sports and short and long orienteering courses. You could also bring your mountain bike to ride around the dam.

SSS Round 2. Ups or Downs?


Week two down. Time to see who has maintained, who has gained and who the rest of us are.

This week's event was hosted by Garingal at North Epping. If you made it through the Epping Road traffic you will have been greeted with some fireroad and trails in the upper end of the Lane Cove National Park, some steep hills around the streets and some ominous skies at had many grabbing a plastic slip for their map. The National Park and steep slope down to the creek meant it was a long loop running along the top of the map, with just one other entry point. With lots of points along the track you had to venture down there if you wanted a 400+ score. It also gave you a sight of the map's namesake, Whale Rock.

SSS Week 1 - Who kept up the training in the off-season

This week we had our first Sydney Summer Series run for the new season, and we were treated to great weather, a great start location and some great views. There was even a free 1km, 10 control mini-course around the park with one control two steps across the sand hanging from a shipwreck!
