From the settors

All those West of Woop Woop know that a Pine Pursuit is no Fairytale. Those Livewires amongst us are keen to get Into the Wilganess and Escape from Isolation. When we first went into lockdown we all had grand plans of making the most of the enforced idleness to get out and get fit. Little did we allow for the lure of the refrigerator light, nor did we expect Netflix binges to be so addictive. So now it is time to flatten that curve around our mid-sections and put some real physical distance between us and everyone else.

Taking all this into consideration, we have planned an event that that has no steep hills, no deep gullies and plenty of nice rounded features that will be easy walking. It has been logged in the past so no big trees to get in the way of that line of sight. And did I mention heaps, and I really mean heaps, of tracks. The hash site is on an airstrip, but with the lack of interstate travel, it is unlikely to be used too often while we are there. But it is flat and heaps of room to spread out.

With Covid-19 restrictions in place there may be limits to the number of competitors allowed, so get in early if you want to escape from isolation.

Results will be posted once they have been verified.
