EVENT WRAP – Essendon

With the Essendon event we have come to the end of a very enjoyable Autumn series. We have had the best of the weather, with only the first event at Travancore getting us wet, and even then it was just a light offering. With all the balmy autumnal evenings through the series, it seems that Tuesday must be Huey’s rostered day off. The courses have been challenging thanks to the setters, and on well lit maps. The competitions have been close with some going right down to the wire. There were quite a few newcomers who we hope to see again in the spring, with some becoming regulars throughout this series.

The courses for this week’s event were set by Rodney on this well established urban map. The area is basically a grid system of streets but Rodney set the controls in a manner that challenged your navigation and route choice in collecting maximum points. The six pointers were within gettable distance from the start/finish, and the five pointers were basically across the south with a journey slightly west for #19 and #17 being close to home. One factor to consider were the hilly areas to the west and south, but these were friendlier than in some areas encountered; especially during the summer series.

Post the event we went to dinner at the Infinity cafe bar lounge, just up the street from the assembly point.  The establishment is under new management and the present owners welcomed us and provided efficient service. About 30 attended and seemed to enjoy the meals, and definitely the company. Jenny got up and thanked all for coming and congratulated the course setters on their courses, the helpers in setting up packing away  the assembly area, and those manning the admin. section. I thanked Jenny for ticking everyone off each week.

Thanks again for coming along and trying your skills in a pleasant atmosphere of competition. I think we provided an enjoyable experience.

See you again in the spring, starting early October.
