G'Day All,

Well it was a great weekend, alot learnt by all from OD. The winners were Northparks (NSW), 2nd Stawell (Vic), 3rd Rosebery (Tas), Fosterville, Oscar1, Bendigo, OD, CSA, Angas. 4-7 were separated by 2% and 1st & 2nd by only .5%.

Overall for a green comp team we did well, for us its just a mind set of remembering to get out of practicality mode & into comp mode.

Talk is we will start training for next year ASAP.

Congrats.
Could you expand on the above quote. I am not sure what you mean by 'out of practicality mode' ? Why do you need to ?

In regards to competion mode i mean verbalising everything & i mean everything.

With the practicality thing, we did a skills event underground with a guy in a grader suffering an heart attack, our medic & myself decided to get him the hell out of there straight away to enable ease of CPR (if required) and for the purpose of the drill the ambos were waiting on the surface for him. It took us 3 min to get him out & 4 min to get him back to the fresh air base. We got docked points for not doing a secondary survey before moving him.

There were a heap of other things that in real life you wouldn't do, but in comps they want you to do.

Hope that clears it up.
