Intervarsity 1968 trophy

ARA was recently contacted by Gavon Balharry, who won the Intervarsity 24 Hour Walk in 1967 and 1968.

Gavon is now retired and resident in Switzerland. Gavon related that in the 1960's he and David Moriarty were postgraduate students at the Waite Institute at Adelaide University.

According to the Phillips' rogaining book and David Hogg's article, the 1967 24 Hour Intervarsity was held in Adelaide and won by Adelaide University, the 1968 event was held in Newcastle and again won by Adelaide.

Gavon has kindly sent a copy of the 1968 Intervarsity results and his trophy. Intervarsity "24 Hour Orienteering" was unofficial until the 1969 event held in Victoria, whose 50th anniversary was celebrated last year.
