Camberwell Central

Saturday, 16 July 2016

The 7pm temperature was as warm as it had been all day, as Melbourne endured a blast of chilled air from the Antarctic.  Once we got moving we soon warmed up and warmed into the map.  Keith had done a very nice job of offering lots of options, and it took a while for some to move off as we pondered our choices.  The full course was a little short, coming in at a bit under 10 km, but it certainly wasn't easy or obvious, with early decisions leading to later errors in some cases.

Alex took out A course, returning ahead of Ian, Paul, Colin and Geoff.  Tim won B course with a massive score of 68 (I believe he only missed no 3, right in the middle), in front of Ian on 63 and Jay on 61.  Tony won PW with another big score of 62 points, ahead of Mark, Ron, Peter K, and The Girls.

It's early days and the divisions haven't yet been determined, but after two weeks the leaders are Ian, Colin and Geoff on A, Tim, Jay and Reg on B, and Ron, Barry and Peter K on PW.

Your correspondent is taking a break for a few weeks, so reporting will resume later in the series.
