Two Shoalhaven Bushwalker teams competed in the 1-day event in Class 1, the women's team finishing equal 16th and the men's team equal 41st. They would have finished equal 20th and equal 48th (out of 62 teams) if all three classes had been combined.

The women's team consisted of Yvonne White, Denise Davies and Karen Davis with the men's team being Alwyn Martin, Jim White and Geoff Vercoe.

When asked why his team did not do as well as the women's team, Geoff Vercoe replied "Yes, I remember very clearly what happened that day - basically the problem was we didn't have Ray Kates. He was excellent on the route planning for maximum points. We thought we had a great plan but got off-course slightly in the morning so missed a strategic point. By lunch we were still under 100 points so at least after lunch we got into triple figures!

"Another part that should be recorded in club history was the very sweet dumplings that Yvonne White made for Friday night supper. We seemed to eat a kilo each which felt like a big handicap the next day."

However, Denise recalls that the dumplings were saved until after the event on the Saturday night ...
