Andrew Brown is our Stinger of the month for November.
Known affectionately as 'Brooner', Big Foot's lanky Scottish import has racked up some impressive results of late.
He was third at the Victorian sprint titles over the weekend, backing up his win in the two-race Big Foot sprints at Sydney Uni by a commanding 38 second-margin.
Andrew also ran in each round to help the Feet land a fifth straight MetrO League championship, and has been very generous with his time this year, helping out with coaching at numerous junior events.
We wish Andrew the best of luck with his training and racing. He wins an Endura pack – nutrition for elite athletes to help them train harder, race faster and recover quicker.

It's time to join up or renew your membership for 2014, and for the first time this process is now available through Eventor.
If you are after a family membership, each person will need to register and 'join' or 'renew' separately. This is due to the way Eventor has been set up.
Click on the 'My Pages' header in the left-hand column, then click on 'My Memberships'.
This will show your current membership(s). From the dropdown menu, click on '2014'. Now select your state and club. Then choose your membership type.
Check your details are correct, then proceed through the payment steps.
Once you have finished, each subsequent family member will need to log in to Eventor and proceed as above. Except... when they click on family membership they need to find your name in the dropdown list and click on it - this will link them to the membership already generated by you and as such they will not have to pay a second time.

Since 2001 the Carbine Club of NSW, a philanthropic organisation that supports the development of junior sports through sponsorship grants, has supported the NSW Schools Orienteering Team.
The team is known as the NSW Carbines in recognition of this support.
Funding provided by the Carbine Club helps reduce the costs to team members of competing at the Australian Schools Championships.
Over the 12 years of continuous support the Carbine Club has donated more than $35,000 to the NSW junior team. This year ONSW was fortunate to again receive a grant of $5,000 for 2013, presented by Carbine Club member Tim Cox (L) to ONSW president Paul Prudhoe recently (pictured).
Whenever we can reduce the costs of training and competition camps we can immediately improve the opportunity for participation of all NSW juniors.
The NSW Carbines and Orienteering NSW greatly thank the Carbine Club for their continued support. A special note of thanks is also extended to Tim Cox for his assistance and support as a member of the Carbine Club.
