Shepherds Bushed

Wednesday, 16 April 2014

We started at the bottom of the hill, which meant the only way was up! Of course, that also meant a nice downhill finish.  Course setter Ainslie managed to bamboozle us nicely.  Last week's winner, Greg, donned the yellow fluoro jersey, but he was unable to hold onto it, and this week's winner Steven will do the honours at Fitzroy.  Mike took second place, followed by Jay, Henk, and Darren. On the Score course, Roger was first back with 100 points, followed by Warwick D and Matt (results are provisional at the moment).

Just a clarification about late penalties, and an apology for any confusion - on ALL courses, the finish time is 8pm.  For Handicappers, you will then lose 1 point per minute, until 8.05pm.  After that, you are DNF'ed - so even if you dont have your 37 points, you must return to the finish.  For the Score course, Runners and Walkers will lose 3 points per minute, until 8.05pm. After that you are also DNF'ed.

Hope you enjoy the fabulousness of Fitzroy next Monday! Your correspondent will be away, so I look forward to seeing you the following week.

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, 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: tel 0402 844 302 (Mark)

In summer, 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).
