EVENT REPORT: JELLS PARK

What a great venue to return to Saturday Series!  The weather was amazing, and the park was full of socially distanced small groups doing their thing.  Course setter Phil placed plenty of controls within Jells Park, and stretched the distance outside the park with some controls west of Jells Road, and up into the hillier parts of the map.  It was a great way to explore all areas of the park, and a tricky course to judge your timing.  We had a great turnout, with many people who don’t normally come along on Saturdays unable to resist the chance to get outside into the sunshine.

At over 11 km, the distance was just a little too far for anyone on Run60 to get a full 70 points.  Andrew H was closest on 67, followed closely by Steven on 66, and Peter M on 65.  Best scorer on Run45 was Robert C with 53 points, with Stephen D just behind on 51, and Andrius on 50.  PW65 was less nailbiting, with Vic top scoring on 58 points, ahead of Sue on 52, and Peter G on 48.

Overall scores will be adjusted again to allow for the lost events; with 18 events possible, it will become best 10 scores to count.  Steven is leading Run60, and his score will improve when this adjustment is made, as he is dropping a lowest score of 82.  Peter M has moved into second, and Stuart is third. No change to the top three on Run45, with Jim out in front, Greg second, and Debbie third.  On PW65, Lauris continues to lead, Lyn holds onto second, and Ros moves into third.

Next Saturday’s event is our second EndurO, at Brunswick.  You’ll have twice as long to get twice as many controls – times are Run120, Run90, and PW120. Points scores are multiplied by 10 – and so are penalties, so don’t be late!  Start any time from 1pm to 2pm.  Bring your phone for QR code check-in, and to use MapRun.
