The final random draws have been conducted for entries to the Xmas 5-Days carnival, and organisers are pleased to announce our last batch of winners:
Jet Boat tickets for 2: Diana Charlton (Newcastle) and Miles Bryant (Enoggeroos from Queensland)
Sydney by Sail refund: Rudi Landsiedel (Newcastle) and Oonagh Grassie (Moravian Orienteers from Scotland).
Speaking of Moravian, check out their great short video.
Our earlier prize winners were:
Sydney Harbour paddle for two: Camilla Bevensee (OK Pan Arhus, Denmark)
The Rocks Ghost Tour: Martin Wehner (Weston Emus, ACT) and Keith Goode (Big Foot)
A big thank you to all our sponsors for their generous prize donations. As well as these prizes, our carnival sponsors are offering discounts to carnival entrants, and these can be viewed here.
Entries have now closed, and we are delighted that there are more than 200 people entered each day and more than 300 for our debut on Cockatoo Island on Day 2.

It's a hectic time of year, and little things - like remembering to enter upcoming events - can sometimes slip our minds as we head into the festive season.
There are three closing dates prior to year's end (and two in the coming week) that orienteers need to be mindful of.
Our big end-of-year carnival in iconic Sydney locations - entries close Sunday December 14. There will be a limited number of enter-on-day maps available each day, although day 3 at Pyrmont will operate as usual for Sydney Summer Series regulars.
Big Foot Sprints
The annual two-race sprint is on Xmas Eve at St Ives Showground - entries close Monday December 15. Again, pre-entry is strongly encouraged.
Is in South Australia next year in early April, and early bird entries (which attract a nice discount) close on Wednesday December 31.
Sydney Summer Series participants are also reminded that the last two events for the year are on MONDAYS - the 22nd at Mosman, and the 29th at Pyrmont (as part of the 5-days).
