Monday Reports weeks 12-14

Wednesday, 24 June 2015

Once again apologies - gremlins in the system have affected the Score results, but they should be rectified very soon. Meanwhile here's what's been happening:

In week 12 we headed to Balwyn Central for a very tricky course set by Bernie.  It looked deceptively simple but the hills made up for the distance, and figuring out when to get the controls in the middle occupied a lot of everyone's mental energy!   Graham, Lara and Noel took the top places in the 37s division.  Ian, Rick and Peter M won the Score Run, and Michael S was the winning PW.

Week 13 was at Clarinda, with a start location right in the middle of all those complicated dead end circuits which make this map so difficult.  Course setter Ian used these to full advantage to create a real mind-bender! Lara, Ian P and Keith were the first three back with their 37 points.  Andrew, Rick and Warwick took the Score Run honours.

This week saw us at Wantirna South, where Roger did a great job of bamboozling everyone.  This time it was Ian P, Dale, and Pam who got back first.  Ian, Warwick and Peter M were top Scorers, with Andy taking the PW win.

See you next Monday at Ringwood Wilds for the final event of Series 1.  Event 1 of Series 2 is at Glen Eira, but right now there is no course setter - please see me asap if you can set this one, otherwise we might all be having a break on July 6.

Monday Night Series

About this series:

Where: Southern and eastern suburbs of Melbourne

When: 7:00pm Mondays; all year round

Cost:  $4 per event for adults, $2 for juniors (under 21)

What to bring: jogging/walking shoes and comfortable, light coloured clothing.  Bring a watch, a drink, and a torch for winter events (late March-mid October).

Please arrive 20-30 minutes early. This will provide time to help you register for the event and explain how to take part.

Groups (schools, scouts, sports or social) are extremely welcome, but please contact us at least a week prior to the event so we can ensure enough maps are printed. 

In winter (March-October), there are 25 controls marked on the map.  Choose one of two formats - a 60 minute Score course (visit as many controls as you can in the allocated time, aiming to score as many points as possible), or a "37s" course, where you are allocated a handicap as your starting score, then you aim to visit enough controls to bring your points score to 37. 

Enquiries: 9878 9168 (Debbie)

In summer (October-March), there are 4 runners courses ranging from 3.5-10 km, and a 60 minute power walkers' course.  For runners the format is Scatter (visit a designated number of controls in any order, first back wins), and for power walkers the format is Score format (visit as many controls as you can in the allocated time).
