James is also WHO's highest level event controller and was the course controller for last year’s Australian Schools Championships.

Hank Van Oost Award - Graeme Hill
Graeme has been the longstanding WHO Treasurer retiring from the role at the recent AGM.
As Treasurer, he delivered a 2018 surplus despite the President planning for a loss and kept the club bank account in great shape. Graeme prepared the club budget and improved WHO's governance by making decision making more budget conscious.
He competed in 29 events , hosting and attended 7 out of 9 club meetings during the year.
He was the setter/organiser/control deployer and a major contributor to the Sydney West Schools events. Graeme set the courses for two WHO events and was the event director for another.
He is control collector extra-ordinaire and offers assistance at all events he attends.
Graeme is a strong advocate for use of the Wyangala map to be used for next year's NSW Championships. On his own initiative he redrew the original huge map on OCAD.
Graeme is an SSS tragic from way back being heavily involved in the series organisation with Ross Barr.
He is the performance benchmark in the SSS Legends Men class.
