Greensborough

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

Greensborough is always an interesting and challenging map.  Some love it, some hate it. I love it ... mostly.  Geoff took account of the hills and shortened the course, but it was still a real workout (anyone else struggle on the climb up to 24 from 8?). Quote from Pete: "I thought it would be flat down along the creek".  Err, no ...  We had a misty sort of drizzle that dissipated before it hit the ground so it wasn't really a bother.  All very enjoyable. In a tortuous kind of way.

First handicapper back was Steven, and proving that it was a night for walkers over runners, he was followed by Ilze, Lauris and Lyn. On the score course, first-time-Mondayer Jarrod quickly got the hang of things, and was the winner over Bruce, Paul and Dave, all of whom got 100 points. On PW, Ewen narrowly beat Suzanne.

Join us next Monday at the mercifully flat 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).
