The final scoring event of the summer series was held at Clarinda, a map famous for making long distances look short, thanks to the many streets that go round in circles (or squares).  Some streets are through roads, but they don't necessarily have controls in them, as I found out when heading down a long straight road exactly one block north of where no 10 was ... grrr.  

There weren't too many surprises in the results, with the Andrews again dominating on A course (followed by the Ians, and the Marks to wrap it up); Tim H, Stephen, and Carolyn on B course; Kelly, Greg and Neale on C; Tony, Steven and Ray on D; and Peter D, Michael and Sandy on PW.

So now the final placegetters are sorted out: A1 went to Andrew (with a perfect 1100 points), Andrew and Rick; A2 was won by Dave, Roger and Paul; A3 placegetters were Ian, Merv and Mark. Tim H won B1 with another perfect score, from Tim J and Jay; and Christine took out B2 from Ray and Dale; while B3 was won by Geoff and Darren.  On C1, Ian, Janet and Reg were the winners; Greg kept the lead on C2 with Neale shooting into second and Suzy third.  Tony won D course with the third perfect score of the series, ahead of Ray and Pete.

On PW1, Michael was the winner from Steven and Helen; Lauris won PW2 from Bernie and Ilze;  Ian, Christine and Adam took the placings on PW3, with Liz missing out by one point; PW4 went to Kelly by two points from Kevin, and Bev finished third.

Next week at Bentleigh will be a non-scoring event with a twist of some sort - you'll have to wait and see what it is!  After that we're into the Winter series, and you'll hear more about that next report.  Don't forget that Monday presentations will be part of our big Awards Night on Wed March 18 - everyone is invited to our BBQ at Maroondah Triangle.

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).
