Their first event was at Pakowhai Park, no not the latest colour map, a black and white map with controls marked by green buckets. His most notable orienteering ability was his unerring skill in finding, and getting caught, in blackberry.

Ted was made a life member in 1994 for his services to the club. The club secretary in 1982-1983, instigated and organised the Ruahine Mountain Marathon 1988, created the Kaweka Challenge event in 1990, was on the Kaweka Challenge organising committee 1990-2002, created and set the Smedley Medley Long O events 1992-1996, was on the APOC organising committee 1994 and coordinator for the three APOC events held in Hawk’s Bay.

Thank you Ted.
