ODDS & EVENS EVENT WRAP

The summer series is done. Sofie’s Odds and Evens course was a fitting final challenge to end our first 12 event summer series. The CovidSafe requirements certainly added greater complexity, but the basic fact that we could all enjoy StreetO again, outweighed any negatives. The “anytime” option has also been a clear winner for many, which I’d imagine will continue for future series.

So how did everyone perform at Odds and Evens ?? In the walking it was Spencer McR with 20 controls and 560 points, that was the winner over Kimbo J and Nicole B (both on 540 pts). In a tight finish in D grade, Jane S with 360 points did enough to hold out Heather L (350 pts) and Stuart L (340 pts). In C grade, John G had a strong run to accumulate 510 points, which was ahead of Sarah C’s 490 pts. Angus S with 510 points in B grade snuck in ahead of Zoe F (500 pts). Ed and Helen S also had 500 pts after losing 60 penalty points for a late finish. With Dom C and Andrew T both on 640 points in A grade, it was the shorter time that gave Dom the win.

To be considered for the series win, a competitor needed to have completed a minimum of 7 events in the given grade. In A grade, Dom C with 7 wins, was the winner over Tony McR . We had no female contenders for the series win in A grade. Angus S had an excellent series in B grade and was the clear winner, while Zoe F and Aimee W couldn’t be split. John G overcame health issues to be the winning male in C grade, with Sarah C edging out Jenny C to be the winning female. Winning D grade male was Stuart L, while Jane S was the winning female and had enough points on the board to be an overall winner in this grade. Sue T had to return to NZ before the series ended but she still had enough wins on the board to be the clear winner in the walking. Tom F was the best of the male walkers.

Well done to all and well done to those that participated in every event. Whether you’re a competitive beast or simply enjoy a walk with friends everyones a winner. Thanks to all the course setters, scorer (Toby C), MapRun admin (Sofie and John), QR check in/out and entry payment (Heather) and everyone else that chipped in to help the events run smoothly.

We will have a break from Geelong StreetO until our winter series starts in early June. There’s still plenty of orienteering opportunities to explore.

Cheers,
