Saturday Series

Welcome to our page for the Saturday Series (fondly known as "CakeO").  The increasingly popular Saturday afternoon events are particularly enjoyed by family groups.  CakeO runs from April-October each year. In off weeks and over summer we often hold informal "BrunchO" training runs on Saturday mornings - see below.

Quamby Quandary

Sunday, 9 July 2017

Quamby Quandary lived up to its name, with course setter Ian posing lots of quandaries to be solved, both physical - how to avoid the worst contours? and mental - how to get all of those pesky controls in the middle loop? Is it worth going all that way out and back to 12?

Newcomer Alastair was a force to be reckoned with, cleaning up A course in under 50 minutes; Steven and Ron had to settle for second and third.  Mark was a touch faster than Phil in scoring 57 points on B to take the win, with Peter D in third.  Barry, Robert and Ros all scored 59 points on PW but it was Barry who made it back first to claim the 100 points.  Of the RadiO competitors, Ian shared 120 points with Bruce but completed the course, set by Mark, in a tick under 63 minutes to win.

Overall, Ron moved to first on A course, Dale is now second, and Steven and Stephen are tied for third (lucky they spell their names differently!)  On B, Phil kept his lead, I moved up to second, and Philippa is now third.  Michael claimed first place on PW, Robert is a handful of points behind in second, and Ros has nudged out Kay to take third.

CakeO takes a break next Saturday, but returns on Saturday July 22 at Banyule.

Saturday Series

About this series:

Welcome to the Saturday Afternoon Series.

Where:  Parks and streets in and around Melbourne suburbs.

When: 2pm on most Saturdays from April to October.

Cost:  $5 per event for adults, $2 for juniors/students

There are two Runners courses (60 mins and 45 mins) and a 60 min Power Walkers course. All courses are SCORE format, with the aim being to visit as many controls as possible in the allocated time.

Refreshments are available after all events. Please stay for a while and bring a plate of food to share. Do not rely on public toilets being available or accessible near start locations on Saturdays.

All Park and Street Orienteering events welcome people of all abilities and ages. There are a range of courses that accommodate everyone from the elite sports person right through to those who are just looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Saturday events are ideal for newcomers, and for kids.  Families and friends can participate in groups or individually.  Groups such as schools, scouts, sports or social clubs are very welcome - but please contact us at least a week prior to the event, so we can make sure enough maps are printed.

Printed programs covering all of Melbourne's Park and Street Orienteering events are available at the events. And of course information is available on this website.

Enquiries:  Peter Yeates, tel 0407 345 368
