2012 National Interschool Championships The Nationals returned to Toowoomba, Qld, for the first time since their inaugural year in 2008. This year we required the riders to apply to be a part of the team in an effort to get them to be proactive and stay in contact with us. In the past many had indicated they would like to be a part of the team but when the final entries were closing they backed out leaving team management to find replacements at the last minute. Despite repeated emails being sent out to the riders who had attended the qualifying event only a small number applied to be a part of the team. This was possibly due to a number of factors including cost, time and other events however the team that we did have was of a high standard. Issues aside it was once again a wonderful event. The weather for the first couple of days was actually cool and blustery but it didn’t take long for the Qld weather that we had ordered to arrive! Qld had one super initiative which was appreciated by all in that they gave each state a BBQ and an area in which to hold their team BBQ. Our entire team and all of their families attended and it was wonderful to have everyone together. 1 2 3 64
