South Island Injury Count Thankfully Stops at 3

28 November 2011

This weekends South Island championships managed to claim the welfare of 3 of our star orienteers; Gordon Smith rolled his ankle badly on Saturday, Carsten Jorgenson after tirelessly re-mapping and planning Acheron Forest for us to enjoy (?) was blown away by the intense heat while Graham Garden was taken out by a rescue helicopter after impaling himself in the jaw with a tree (you must have been going really fast Graham!) Thankfully he is ok, thanks to the many people that helped to build a stretcher, phone for the helicopter, etc. Martin Etherington captured the touchdown of the helicopter here.
