A new start location gave a new perspective (even if some of us got a little geographically challenged just finding the start).  Course setter Dave offered plenty of options which created plenty of talk afterwards.  The five pointers were dangled enticingly, luring you ever further away from the finish, resulting in a dash for home for some.  The A course winners were Simon, Ian, Colin, Paul and Tim.  On B course, Tim top scored with 55 to Nick's 54, with Deb third on 49.  Phil took out PW with 59 points, ahead of Ron on 53, then Peter K, Mark, and Kay.

We have passed the half way point, which means that next week's event will actually be Spring - yay!  It also means that some competitors have reached 8 events and will now start to drop their lowest scores.  Leading A1 is Ian, then Colin and Warwick, but Simon has the best average with 5 wins from 6 events.  Hugh is out on front on A2, ahead of Andrew and Janet.  Lauris is first on A3, followed by Ray and Mark B, with Ken looking to threaten.  Suzanne has the advantage over Dale and Lara on A4. On B1, Tim is the clear leader with 7 wins from 8 events.  Next is Peter M and Jay.  The other Peter M is on top of B2 ahead of Reg and Greg, with Reg, Graham and Jenny all on strong averages.  B3 sees Steve leading Pete.

On to Power Walkers ... Peter K lead PW1 from Phil and Mark, with Tony in great form.  Ilze is in front on PW2 followed by Kay and Michael but that division is in for a shakeup as more complete 8 events.  Ian heads PW3 from Gwennyth and the third Peter M, while Mike, Barry and Newbury lead PW4.

See you next Wednesday at Wheelers Hill.
