Easter at Molong 2021 proved to be a huge challenge due to the black dots and lines sprinkled like 100's and 1000's all over the map. Take your hats off to the following Garingalites who had podium finishes on one or more of the days, and especially to Istvan, Niki, Ian, Aniko and Cooper for a podium finish overall. Notably, Cooper was running up an age class in order to have a challenge.

At the Garingal's 2020 Christmas Party - held this afternoon at Manly Dam - the Perpetual Trophy for the 'Most Improved Junior in 2020' was awarded to Riley Grainger. The Junior Encouragement Award Medal goes to Kieran Joseph. The Silver Hare perpetual trophy was awarded to Warwick Selby for running our events calendar for several years now (over a dozen non-SSS events per year that he finds the Course Planner, often also an Organiser, and a Controller - no mean feat). The Silver Hare was donated nearly four decades ago by Garingal member Moira Whiteside who believed that the people behind the scenes contributing to the organisation of events should be recognised too. The list of awardees on the base of the Silver Hare is a veritable who's who of Garingalites. Photos L to R: Riley Grainger, Kieran Joseph, Warwick Selby (all courtesy of Tony Hill).

The awarding of the overall Garingal Champion for 2020 has been held over until after the results of the 2020 NSW Middle and Long Championships being held at Eugowra the week after Easter are known. This way the profile of Garingal events that count toward the Club Championships will better represent the typical nature of orienteering across a year (distorted of course by the coronavirus situation).
