Highbury Hill

Thursday, 20 November 2014

First time course setter Steuart did a great job with the Highbury Hill map.  Apologies about control 4 - we're blaming the work experience kid who helped put the controls out. There was plenty of post race debate about the best course, as it seemed no two people had done the same thing.

Bruce continued his winning streak on A course, keeping ahead of Andrew, Peter, Colin and Alex.  Lanita was back in the winners circle on B, ahead of Bryan, Peter, Coral and Alicia.  C course was won by Darryl, from Chris, Janine, Tony and Jay.  Mason, Torren, Buzz, me and Pete were the first five back on D course, while Felicity, Sophie, Samantha, Pat and Bernadette were the top 5 on E course.  Ron outscored his rivals on PW with 62 points, ahead of Mark, Len, Helen and Sandy.

Bruce retains his overall lead on A, with Geoff and Rick each moving up one place.  Ray now tops the B course standings ahead of Peter D and Katherine, while Lanita tops the averages. Suzy continues to hold the lead on C, but Tony and Janine move up to second and third, and are separated by just one point.  On D, Mason has a one point advantage over Torren, with me in third.  And keeping it in the family, Sophie leads E course, from Pat.  On PW, the lead has changed hands, with Mark moving into top spot, Ron in second, and Len in third.

Join us next Wednesday at Blackburn North.
