Navrescue 09

The annual Navrescue event hosted by Wollongong SES has once again been run and won. This year’s event was held in bushland at Belanglo State Forest. Some 24 teams from 17 units participated on the day.

As with previous years there were the 4 activities that tested teambuilding, first aid and radio work along with 15 or so checkpoints dotted throughout the bush. An unseasoned hot day made the walking and bush navigation all that bit harder with many teams doing it tough.

Southern Highlands Bushwalkers eventually won a close contest, followed by Baulkham Hills and Parramatta SES.
