Nine teams lined up for the first ever inter-house adventure race. Teams of 4 had to navigate their way around the campus completing activities at 7 different checkpoints. Activities such as navigating a passenger in a wheelbarrow while blindfolded, caused for loads of fun and funny moments. As the teams completed the activities they were awarded numbers, which in the end, were part of a code that needed to be deciphered in order to complete the race. The race was a close affair for most of the way, with six of the nine teams busy with the final activity at the same time and the race could have therefor gone to anyone. Bendigo made a final clean sweep by winning the u19 and the u15 categories.
Thank you to all the teams who participated, not forgetting the marshals, with a special thanks to Mr Meintjes.
The first inter-house adventure race was a huge success and the next one will be bigger, better, wetter and more adventurous!
