Tunstall Junction

Wednesday, 4 May 2016

The southern end of the Tunstall Junction map provided plenty to think about, especially when you went south of Springfield Road, then met the dilemma of coming back around the outside, where the points were higher, or cutting back across the middle.  As the halfway point nears, you really have to start planning and deciding whether to go for those extra 4 points, or play it safe with an early return.  It certainly kicks up the adrenaline a gear, as once you've made the choice (and who amongst us ever plays it safe!) you are fully committed for the rest of the race.

This week only Steven and Ian got the full 9 targets (36 points), with Dave third on 8 targets.  Bernie, Annie and Noel were the highest scoring power walkers, with 4 targets (16 points) apiece.  We had some new runners join in the Score course, where Mark J won with 100 points, ahead of Warwick on 95 and Alicia on 88.  Lara won PW with 64 points, Michael was next on 55, then Ilze on 50.

Next Monday we head south to Clarinda - a truly tricky map where devious course setters can put two control circles apparently adjacent, but in fact hundreds of metres apart.  Can you outsmart the setter?  Come along and find out!

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).

Enquiries: tel 9872 5710 (Annie)
