Event Report – Quamby Quandary

A new start gave a topsy turvy feel for the map – usually the first task is to climb one of the hills, but this time it was downhill first in every direction, whilst trying to puzzle out the best way to tackle Rick’s course. The descents came to an abrupt end as the hills kicked in, and we had to factor in contours to our time management – as of course the customary downhill into the finish, was now an uphill! I for one wasnt quite brave enough to risk one last control, preferring to play it safe as I struggled up aptly named Tortice Drive.

The top three A runners, namely Andrew H, Steven and Andrew B, all got the full 70 points, and well done for managing that! Victoria led the B course pack with 58 points, ahead of Peter D on 52 and Phil on 51. Ros top scored on PW with 54 points, ahead of Liz and Sandy, both on 47.

With everyone’s best 12 scores to count, overall results are still largely attendance-driven, and we don’t have our divisions yet. Robert, Steven and Peter lead A course, with David and Stephen just a few points outside the top three, and Steven showing the best form with an average of 98. Greg, Victoria and Joel are the leaders on B course, with Victoria’s 97 point average the highest. On PW, Ian M, Lyn and Ros make up the top three, with Ros’s 98 point average the strongest.

We take a short break for the long weekend, before returning with another great Park event and colour map at Ruffey Lake on June 15.
