Monday Wrap

Latest Monday Wrap – Waverley Woods

Now that it’s March, the days are definitely shorter, and next time we compete on a Monday, there will be torches; though hopefully still plenty of warm weather. People were eager to grab the brightly coloured winter fixture – we have plenty, so take them for friends, family, work colleagues, gyms, libraries etc – spread the word!

I’m not sure I’ve seen a crowd spend quite so long studying the map before moving off; and with a ring of 5 pointers around the start, it was no wonder (even runners doing scatter courses get drawn to high points; we can’t help ourselves!) Returning competitors agreed it was a real challenge to find the best route, so great job by Rick for the last Monday Summer event.

Winners were Ian, Steven and Andrew on A; Mark, Jay and Bruce on B; Phil Deb and Reg on C; Melanie, Luke and Holly on D; and Ian, Dave and Andrew on PW.

Final overall results saw Andrew take out A1 with 1100 points; and Ian and Steven in a tie; after a tight tussle all season, they could not be separated. Helen clung to her A2 lead by a 2 point margin over Rick, with Mark third. Jay claimed a big victory on B1 from Lauris and Bruce. On B2, Stuart took the overall win with Ray sneaking into second ahead of Dale in third.

Damian was another almost uncontested winner, on C, but Reg came from behind to take second, with Erick in third. I held on for D course, with Pete second and Kerryn third. PW1 saw another neck and neck result, with Dave another 1100-point scorer, Garry in second, and Helen hanging in for third with a 1 point margin over Barry. PW2 was a bit similar, with Muriel the clear winner, Chris second, and Hans keeping his hard-fought third place. Mike was victorious on PW4, with Gwennyth taking second and Schon third in a close result.

So that’s it for another summer! Series prizes will be awarded at the BBQ and Awards Night on Wednesday March 14, along with our other end of summer presentations. Monday Autumn Series gets underway on March 19 at Rosanna Parklands – a map to really enjoy while we still have daylight at our disposal.

Huge thanks to those who made this series happen – coordinator Rob who brought the gear, kept you informed, and kept it all ticking along; scorers Gwennyth and Andrew; caterers extraordinaire Lauren and Andrea, who provided that delicious fruit every week; and to the course setters, club coordinators, and control collectors – we couldnt do it without you! See you in two weeks.
