Great job from first time course setter Jonathan, with courses that had everyone thinking hard, and so many choices right from the start.  AND he didnt put a five pointer on top of the slide!
A course saw Bruce make his first appearance this season, and he took the win from Paul, Colin, Geoff and Rachel.  The super competitive B course went to James, ahead of Tim, Steven, Nick and Eleanor (flying the flag for the UK).  Camberwell Grammar dominated C course, with Tom, Nicholas, Edmund and David taking the top four spots, and Tony (whose school days are behind him) in fifth.  

Carolyn, Matt, Benjamin and Keith all returned faster than me on D - I was kicking myself after slacking off in the finish chute, only to be beaten to the punch by the two boys.  That'll teach me!  Pat was the winner on E course.  Dave won PW with 60 points, ahead of a tight cluster - Ron, Len, Ros and Garry all within 2 points of each other.

Overall there was very little change from last week, so we'll revisit things next time around.  See you next Wednesday at Belmore Parklands.
