Knox Fields aka Bermuda Triangle

Friday, 17 April 2015

Wheelers Hill has its Vortex of Doom; Knox Fields has its Bermuda Triangle.  Plenty of people have come unstuck in the midwestern part, where straight and diagonal roads meet at angles - parallel errors abound.  I just had difficulty counting to 21, and found myself with more points than I needed at the end, resulting in a bypass of a couple of very close controls, having gone quite a distance earlier to pick up one or two that I (wrongly) thought I needed.  All just part of the fun!

This week's 37s winner is Bernie H, who was first to return with 37 points. He was followed by Lauris, Christine, Steven and Annie.  On the Score course, Andrew was the only person to earn 100 points, closely followed by Bruce on 98, Warwick on 97, and Ian on 95.  Just a reminder on finish times - for 37s, you have until 8.05pm to get back - after that, you DNF, and your handicap is not adjusted (so its better to come back on time with fewer points, than to be late with 37 points).  On the Score course, the finish time is 8pm.  After that you incur late penalties at 3 points per minute.

See you next Monday at Kangaroo Very Flat, Murrumbeena.  Wonder what geometric conundrums await there?

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)
