While Heaney Park had a few more contours than last week it was still at the flatter end of the distribution of maps for the southern series. The street network looks particularly complicated with a mixture of disconnected loops and incomplete grids and lots of distracting courts. Keith Anker was the course-setter this evening – the course featured a good mixture of external and internal controls requiring concentration when going around on the longer routes. A challenge was also put to the power walkers with some high point controls tucked away (like 19) and other low point controls relatively distant (9, 4, 5 and 6). Would anyone collect the lot this evening?

The answer was no. Series leader Dave S. was back this week and he returned with 85 out of 100 points. Mel K. did well to return with 78. Noel McV. and Kevin M. both came back with 65 points but Noel McV. was a bit quicker so to take third place.

There was almost a complete turnover in the placings for A course this week. Ricky T. was first back, followed by Thomas W. who jumped a place (and found the shortest route). Andrew H. snuck into third place, just 15 seconds ahead of Ian Dv.

Alaster M. was first back this week in B-course, returning 12 seconds ahead of Tim H. Bruce P. once again came in third. Alaster M. found the shortest course as well!

Lucas K. returned to take first place in C-course. Lachlan B. was second back, followed by Greg P., just ahead of Rhys E. (though the gap narrowed to six seconds). Eric D. found the shortest route this evening though.

Tony B. was first back for D-course, followed by Brigitte G.-S. and Chris G.-S. Tony B. also found the shortest route.

Next week it is back to the hills when we run the Waverley Parklands map, with another interesting street network.
