Monday CatchUp

Friday, 15 May 2015

Time for a recap!  Since the last report, we've been to Kangaroo (Very) Flat, Forest Chase, Waverley Woods, and Colchester.  A contour analysis suggests that we've been gradually making our way up bigger hills.

On the flats of Murrumbeena, the 37s winner was Allan, followed by Christine and Helen. On the score course, winning runners were Ian, Warwick, and Paul S. Top scoring PWs were Robert, Dale and Chris.

At Forest Chase, Keith kept things compact with a confusion of controls in the estate just east of the start.  Tony, Allan and Ilze were the first returnees on the 37s course.  Ian, Glen and Dave were the fastest score course runners, while Robert, Peter and Sandy scored the most PW points. 

Ian's course at Waverley Woods was a mind bender - you know you're in for a good one when the course setter says Go, and nobody budges. Hamish, Phil and Denise took the top 3 spots on the 37s course, while Ian, Andrew and Paul took top spots on the score course,and Robert, Dale and Andy did the same on PW.

Finally to bring us up to date, Pat set a great course out at Colchester and it was pleasing to see so many come to one of our most eastern maps. With judicious planning it was possible to stay off the worst of what I call the Volcanic Cone.  37s places went to Hamish, Pete and me.  On the score course, Andrew B emerged the winner ahead of Warwick and Ian; and Andy, Michael and Schon scored most points on PW.

See you next Monday at Mitcham.

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.
