The Dual

The Dual Rocked!

Great fun had by all on the weekend!   There was quite a large contingent of DoC members involved in the Dual on Saturday on Rangitoto.  Great fun had by all in a few different disciplines.  Check out the results here

If you look through the results you can see some of the Jafakids starting to catch their parents (if not beat them).  Looks like the Jafa’s are getting stronger by the day.
