Event Report – Albert Park

Another beautiful day for park and street orienteering in another historic part of Melbourne – even more of a maze than North Carlton with laneways – both Victorian and part of some contemporary developments nearer the foreshore. The course setter, Suzanne O’Callaghan said she found it required being careful even when putting out controls. Suzanne deliberately put the controls in the parks and along the foreshore. With three five point controls in the centre of the map this meant participants had to decide when to get them, while not missing the others on the edge.

Helen W. scored her first 100 of this Saturday A series, making sure she collected all of the high points – pipping by one Steve O.C and Peter M. who each dropped a four point control each. Denise P. also navigated well to come in fourth. In B course, Steven D. followed up his first place in Carlton North with another first, one three pointer ahead of Victoria G., followed by Peter D. For the power walkers, Geoff A. came in first with an excellent 56, followed by Barry G., Andrew H. and Ros K.

After two weeks of flat inner city courses, we head out to Eltham – where the course setter promises the opportunity to see many of the sights of Eltham: the railway bridge, dirt roads, mud brick houses and the odd hill…

There was also some discussion today of using public transport to get to the event today to avoid the congestion of Hoddle St and South Melbourne. The Eltham starting point is a short walk from the train station (and the main bus stop).
