No this is not a doppelganger!
No this is not a doppelganger, Sandra Austin really did win both the best poker hand in Life’s Poker Bike ride on Sunday 4 October and the street orienteering prize at Docklands with a team mate on Saturday 10 October. Numbers were down on both events but enthusiasm was riding sky high.
Nick Grange from Diamond Creek OM:NI, see https://omnidiamondcreek.wordpress.com for more photos, was right in the thick of it again this year hoping to win a hat trick in the poker bike ride, but his hand was topped by Sandra’s full house. Better luck next year Nick!
Orienteering in Docklands – we had help from the experts
We had help from the experts to stage this new event. An experienced club team set the course and a few stalwarts of Orienteering Victoria http://www.vicorienteering.asn.au/ offered advice leading up to and on the day. Thank you all. It was a bit of a hoot with one or two people running to the finish line but one of the teams who actually got the top score on Sunday – June, Martin and Catherine – claim to be ‘serious amblers’ and took the course at a more leisurely pace and had lots of fun.
