We used a less familar but very interesting part of the Ashwood map.  Course setter Lauris provided quite a challenge; the hills did the rest.  The bisecting railway line also made planning a little harder, and all those angled streets made orientation quite tricky.

Our scorer is away this week so check back on the weekend for results; however I can tell you that the first person back, and wearer of next week's yellow jersey, is Pat.  She was followed by David P, then Ian D.  On the Score course, Warwick was the only person with a full complement of 100 points; Dave came close, just missing out on no 18.  Sorry walkers, my mental maths isn't up to working out a winner!

Our next three events promise plenty of contours - Endeavour Hills North next Monday, followed by Highbury Hill (which is actually not as hilly as it sounds), then Greensborough.  For the flat-earthers, you'll have to wait until Rowville Lakes!

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).

Enquiries: tel 9898 4316 (Gwennyth)
