Mulgrave

Tuesday, 25 August 2015

Despite the dark clouds down south, and the drizzle, it turned out to be a fine clear night and we had a pretty good turnout - everyone is acclimatising to the cold!  This is one of those maps where keeping contact is vital, and the compact course layout made that even more important.  An inviting cluster of 2 pointers in the northeast made that the direction to head.

This week's winner of the 37s course was Denise, followed by Gwennyth, then Hamish who was the first runner to return.  They were followed by a mix of walkers and runners on a spread of handicaps so there was no bias in the course setting.  The shorter distance saw more Score course runners "get the lot", led by Ian, Warwick, Mark, Paul and Peter M.  Andy had a narrow win from Pete on PW, 63 points to 62, with Henk third on 56.

See you next Monday at BoulderDash in Northcote. Handicaps for week 9

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.

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).
