Event Report – Royal Park

Our final Saturday event was on a great colour map of Royal Park. Course setter Andrew gave us plenty to think about, placing all controls in the parkland or very close by. This is a map that you have to keep contact with; complicated by the railway and tram lines, hockey centre, and the zoo. Good to see some new families, some returning travellers, and Noel with his new knee.

Despite not counting towards the final results, all categories were hotly contested. On A course, Steve T and Peter M both got 64 points, with Stepehn C third on 61 points. It was a close result on B course, with Kate just pipping Peter D 46 to 45 points, and Rod third, also on 45 but with some late penalties; David and Reg were unlucky to miss a place on 44 and 43 respectively. On PW, Andrew finished 2 points clear of Barry, 51 to 49 points; Lauris was third on 45 points.

Certificates were awarded to the series winners and placegetters – congratulations to all! Our thanks to series coordinator Pete, assistant Robert, caterers Lauris, Phil, Ros and Bernie, and scorer Derek; as well as all our course setters and control picker-upperers. Every little bit of help counts!
