Middle Final

Today was the first final of the 2009 World Orienteering Championships. Hanny came 18th and Grace 15th (one better than last year!) We are all really proud of them both - it was a really tough course and area.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR COACH ROB!!!!!! We are about to celebrate with some cake :-)

Hoot dog anyone?

Does Rob look older or is the week looking after the girls taking its toll... ;-)

One of our stars of the day cooking dinner for us!

How else would you want to celebrate your 30th birthday?

  6. Hanny, Kathryn, Shannon, good luck, run well in the sprint. Can't wait to hear Per calling ".....(insert H, K or S) is running so fast"


  7. So far so good. Definitely looking forward to the remaining races.

    It was a big day for the Elson household - Bert and Jan's Tasmanian bushwalking book was the one used for the Substitute section on 'Spicks and Specks'. (For those who haven't seen it, this involves one team member having to sing a song using the words from a completely unrelated bit of text and their other team members having to work out what the song is).
