Check your result Event Report – Westgarth We began the Thursday series at Westgarth, in the first of half a dozen in the Northcote-Preston-Ivanhoe area, with a cleverly arranged course by Reg Saunders. The railway forms a barrier but in addition, Reg offered (indeed, tempted) participants the chance to go to the southwest corner (which isn’t often used) with a set of four seemingly closely placed controls plus a straightforward route home via 16 and 12. However, it turned out (for the A runners) that dropping 15, 13 and 2 considerably shortened the course (as was discovered in different ways by locals Bruce A. and Josie Y.) Scattering controls well north and right next to the railway line further complicated the challenge for participants. Thanks to Lauris S. for running the table as Reg was unable to be there (and thank you to whoever brought the finish line lollies!) Among the power walkers, Len B. took out first place with 54 points, just ahead of Vic S, on 52 and Barry G., who came in before Ros K., both on 50 points. Ewen T. was first back for D, followed by David H. and Ruth G. For C. Sue C., Dennis M. and Bill B. took the first three places. Victoria G. and Stuart McW were first and second respectively for B. Finally, Bruce A. was first (with about a kilometer shorter course) from David P. and Warwick D. in A division. The next few weeks probably include the flattest courses in the Northern series (at least until February 2020) so come out to enjoy them – next week we go to the Bellfield map at Ivanhoe.
