ENDEAVOUR GREENS

After wet conditions the previous week, it was a lovely mild, verging on warm, night for the Endeavour Greens event. Endeavour Hills began to be suburbanised in the 1970s so the street and park design reflects this, with roads going up and down steep hills, no grids and multiple crescents and courts. However, it does have a lot of cut-throughs and, in the east, an extensive park. In the south various freeways separate the map into sections (though with connecting paths and bridges). The hills inspired one experienced orienteer to comment that this was more like a Northern Series event!

Mark Besley was the course setter this evening and his course took those doing the longer courses (or the more ambitious power walkers) to all sections of the map. This included an extended section around the eastern park network. His course also encouraged people to make use of the cut-throughs. The road network though meant those who went west had to work. Even with the cut throughs getting all four controls required going up and down the hills!

While there was a clear first (Ricky T.) and second (Ian Dv.) for A course, just five seconds separated third (Arthur S.) from fourth (David P.) David P. found the shortest course this evening.

The biggest group this evening was those doing the B-course. Alaster M. was first back, followed by Tim H. and Bruce P. Stuart McW. found the shortest route though.

Two seconds separated first from second for C-Course. Lucas K. was first back for the second week in a row. Mark B. was just two seconds behind though. Greg P. took third place. Eric D. found the shortest route around the course.

Graham L. was first back of those doing D-Course this evening, followed by last week’s course-setter, Tasha T. Robert H. was third. Peter Y. found the shortest route.

The course proved challenging for power-walkers. First placed, Dave S., stayed north of the Monash Freeway to return with 61 points. Elizabeth H. chose to pick up more controls, rather than getting all of the high point controls, which resulted in her taking second place, by one point, from Lauris S.

Next week we return south to Waterford Valley!
