Heaney Park

Tuesday, 17 May 2016

Blustery winds greeted competitors at Heaney Park, in a repeat of the wild weather at Clarinda the previous week.  It seemed to be blowing in all four directions simultaneously!  Despite course setter Merv's rogaining credentials, the controls were a lot less than 1 km apart.  For Target competitors, the trick was spotting the outer ring of 2 pointers - once you picked it up, it was a very nice flowing route that had the points flowing as well.  One of the great things about a variety of course setters is that each course requires a different approach to planning - some courses are best worked out right at the beginning, others you can get away with figuring it out in the dying stages (my preferred option!)

Ian and Vic were the only two runners to get 36 points; Andrew was close with 32, then there was a bunch on 28.  Graham again planned his time well to score 20 points on the Short course. Bernie, Andrew and Annie led the PW contingent, all scoring 20 points, while the rest of the field scored 16.  It was a little tough on the Score course.  A 3 point late penalty robbed Mark J of a perfect score and he had to settle for 97, still enough to claim the win over Rick and Roger.  Alicia had a big win in PW with 67 points, next best were Sue, Gwennyth and Pat, all with 41 points.

Join the fun next Monday at Dandenong Creek in Heathmont.
