Dingley Village

Tuesday, 9 September 2014

We haven't used this map a lot, which is a pity, because it's a cracker.  And flat to boot.  We had a nice sheltered start location out of the howling wind, then we were across the main road and into the twists and turns of the map. It's surprising how much distance can be squeezed out of a seemingly small area, and course setter Ian made the most of the confusing street layout.

First back were the Newburys so another yellow jersey for them, and another win to the Walkers.  Second was runner Ian P, followed by Henk, Andrew, and Simon - so it was the boys turn this week after last week's female domination.

Warwick won the score course - he got 100 points but was 3 mins late back - still enough to sneak ahead of Christine, Roger, Rick and Dave, all on 88 points.  Andrew won PW with 69 points, ahead of Ainslie and Michael.

Join the fun next week at Coburg.

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).
