Day 3 is the final make or break day in the competition, where leaders work hard to hang onto their leads, and others strive to improve a few places on their day 2 positions.
After Day 3, our club members finished the Australian 3-Days as follows:
M17-20E Ian Lawford 2nd today, 2nd overall, and only being outgunned by Ollie Poland.
M55A Geoff Lawford 1st today, 1st overall; Roch Prendergast 7th today, 6th overall
M65A Andrew Campbell 13th today, 5th overall
W21E Aislinn Prendergast 6th today, 5th overall, with a really solid and consistent effort across all stages and only 11:33 overall behind the winner Grace Crane; Belinda Lawford 11th today, no overall result because of her Day 2 DNS
W50A Jenny Bourne 1st today, 1st overall, and won W50A on all three days!
W55+AS Judy Prendergast 4th today, 3rd overall, and less than 10 mins behind class winner Jane Watt
W65A Rose Campbell 5th today, 12th overall
