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.

Gardiners Bend

Sunday, 10 September 2017

Congratulations to last week's course setter Graham, who completed his 750th event!  This week, Tim was determined to send us to every corner of the map, setting a lengthy course that forced everyone into making early decisions.  I just folded the map in half and reset my expectations to those controls that remained visible, and luckily there were a few high pointers in the equation.  Some nice control placements required reading the map detail.  Quite a few opted for Suzanne's RadiO course, which was also a good sightseeing opportunity!

Highest scorers on A course were Stephen with 52 points, Helen on 51, and Ray on 48.  On B course, Peter D won with 39 points, ahead of Graham on 32, then me and Louise both on 31.  Michael scored 45 points to win PW from Barry on 37, then Robert, Peter and Damian all on 36.

This was the second last scoring event for 2017, so every point counts, and if you havent notched up 8 events, you wont be in the running.  Stephen C took advantage of the absence of Steven and Ron (and Ian on the radio course) to move within one point of second, and clear of Andrew. No-one can catch the three leaders now.  The placings on B also look final, with Phil out in front, Peter D leaping up to second, and Philippa in third.  On PW, the top three look like being Michael, Robert, and Ros.

The next Saturday event is at Mullum Mullum on September 23rd.

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
