The 101-cone-challenge was the highlight from Saturday's racing. At first nobody could get through it without knocking a cone down, but slowly people started to master it, and then the times started falling steeply. If we'd had more time we might have all got down to sub 30-second times.

1 Haggy Strom 29.09
2 Ross Sulfaro 31.45
3 Gareth Fitzgerald 31.64
4 Colin Beck 32.33
5 Jackson Shapiera 32.70
6 Owen Davey 33.21
7 Daniel Monaghan 34.14
8 John McGrath 35.22
9 Dave Robertson 36.12
10 Neil Willington 40.35
11 Evan Miris 42.94
12 Bernie Griffiths 43.04
13 Scott Taylor 55.29

Thanks to all who put in a big effort by either travelling from afar, organizing, or even just showing much stoke.

Bugs I'm loving being able to go over all the race results and times.

Robbo, you beat me in Rd. 2 by the narrowest of margins. 0.005 secs! I kept a very tidy cone count all day but that one cone I hit in ours cost me the race.
