Ahh Melbourne... 30 degrees one day, 15 the next.  A chilly wind and the threat of rain kept some people home - a shame, as this was a great course on a great little map, set by Bernie.  Most of us were back before torch turn-on time (about 7.50pm).  I love being able to read the light pole numbers - can we have daylight saving all year please?

Winner of the final 37s for the year was Pete, followed in by Ian P, Mike, Tina and Christine.  Plenty of score course runners got 100 points, but first back was Bruce, then Paul, Warwick, Ted and Dave. Ros won PW with 82 points, ahead of Rick and Shata.

Prizes for the overall winners, plus the Most Improved and Most Consistent, will be handed out on Wed Oct 22 at Gardiners Bend.

Huge thanks to our series coordinator and scorer Simon, who handled 30 weeks of indecipherable control cards and handicapping complaints with cheerful aplomb.  I personally must apologise for the card I handed in with scratch marks made by a stick; my pen having been left behind.

Monday Summer Series kicks off next week at Ashwood.  Runners - remember it's Scatter format for the next 22 weeks.  Season tickets will be on sale from Tina - get in during the first three weeks for huge savings.  See you 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 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.
