This was only our second time on this map, and a different start location made it feel brand new.  The street layout around the start allowed course setter Peter to provide plenty of options, and I spent a lot of time trying to make up my mind.  The strong southerly wind added an extra challenge, especially if, like me, you chose an anti-clockwise route.

The Monday series got off to a great start the previous week at Ashwood, where Lauris really had us thinking hard.  The creek that bisects this map, with limited crossing points, complicated matters further.  There was certainly a lot of talk and no particular consensus on the best routes.

So after two weeks, the A course leaders are Andrew, Simon and Paul.  Tim's two wins on B course have him firmly on top , ahead of Steven and Bill.  C course also has a dual winner, Ian, ahead of Janet and Peter, while Tony leads D course from me and Pete, who are tied for second.  Bernie, Annie and Christine currently have the top spots in PW.

Next week's event is at Wantirna South, and we hope to see plenty of people along enjoying Cup Eve. What better way to prepare for a holiday than to get some exercise, before indulging in all that chicken and champagne! 

Don't forget that next week is the final week to purchase a Season Ticket.  These are great savings - 22 events for the price of 12, and the convenience of not having to scramble for change each week.  Anyone who has a current (2014 or 2015) Orienteering Victoria membership is eligible - by paying the new low joining fee ($25-$30) through your club, you'll save $40 per series! Over 12 months, that's a considerable discount.  See IAN next Monday night.

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 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)

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.
