Mars Bar Cup 2016

By Jenny Ball

Even though many club members were involved in championships in Queensland and it was AFL Grand Final Day, many people braved the cold to participate in the annual Mars Bar Cup (or Mahers Barr Cup) challenge held in the picturesque Sedgwick forest on October 1st.
It was great to see Lillian Maher representing her Maher family. Jimmy Cameron was in great form following his run in Queensland – he was the only one to visit all controls in the given hour (about 8.3 km).
Conditions were very wet underfoot. Gullies became water courses. Water courses flowed like creeks and many tracks had turned into water courses.
Most people managed to visit their selected controls in the hour. There were a few late penalties applied.
Brettt Houlden raced to the finish with 2 seconds to spare and Ian Johnson was delighted to complete a course successfully.
In the easy course Harrison Carter excelled with a time of 15.25 minutes and his sister Isabelle also completed the course in good time considering the conditions of the tracks.
At the end of the event all participants received a Mars Bar, which put a smile on many faces (thanks Jenny for donating the Mars Bars).
Thanks to John W, Lorraine L, Nola J and Andrew W, for picking up controls and also to Brett Houlden for bringing the trailer.
