Waverley Parklands

Sunday, 19 November 2017

This map is well known as a former Champs venue, and as one where if you get it wrong - you can get it very wrong!  Local intel says head east - go down the hill under the power line, to avoid coming back up that hill at all costs.  Those in the know have figured out the best way to return to the finish is from the south, where the contours ease off a bit.  Course setter Ian didnt make these strategies particularly easy, but it was possible to circle the bottom of the hill and avoid the worst of it.

A course winners were Andrew, Steven and Helen.  First back on B were Chris, Jay and Eleanor, while quickest on C were Amanda, Graham and Reg.  Ian, me and Margi returned fastest on D course.  The highest scoring power walkers were Dave on 64 points, Ros on 60, Garry and Helen on 58, and Barry on 57.

Overall, while Andrew has four wins from four starts, Helen and Geoff are both ahead of him in the standings, having completed five events. Ian and Steven are tied for fourth and fifth so that will be interesting to watch over coming weeks.  Stuart and Lauris are tied for the B course lead ahead of Robert; Jay has the early form but is one event in arrears.  Damian leads C course (his course setting score needs to be added), with Eric and second and three time winner Amanda third.  D course has me, Pete, and Allan filling the top three.  Dave is out in front on PW, Barry is second, and Chris third; Helen and Garry are showing great form as well.

See you next Monday at Camelot Rise.

What to bring: jogging/walking shoes and comfortable, light coloured clothing.  Bring a watch, a drink, and a torch for winter events (late March-mid October).

Please arrive 20-30 minutes early. This will provide time to help you register for the event and explain how to take part.

Groups (schools, scouts, sports or social) are extremely welcome, but please contact us at least a week prior to the event so we can ensure enough maps are printed.
