Although the conditions weren't quite summery, conditions were excellent for a run or walk at whatever pace you chose to go.  Glenn's course was really tricky, as demonstrated by the seeming reluctance of people to head off at the start.  The box configuration around the start was an obvious loop of 7, but as soon as you started to add in the extra controls that you needed, the loop no longer became practical, and many people dropped controls that were very close in.  A great start to our 22 weeks.

A Course was won by Bruce in 8.6 km, ahead of Alex and Bryan.  Tim took out B Course, followed by Mark and Jay.  Phil was quickest on C course, then Denise and David; while Ewen returned first on D course ahead of me and Ray.  Lynn, Warwick and Greer were the first three on E course. For the Power Walkers it was all about points, namely how many they could get before 8.05.  Mark scored highest with 60, next was Peter K on 59, Ron on 58, and Helen on 57.

Season ticket sales were booming - and it's not too late to get one!  We'll be selling them for the next 2-3 weeks.  At just $60 per series for 22 weeks, the savings are massive.  You must be a member of a Victorian orienteering club, and new memberships taken out now are valid until the end of 2017.

See you next Wednesday at Highbury Hill in Burwood.
