Event Report – Altona

This week we went west to Altona for the finale of our Tuesday Western Night Series. The assembly was outside a well lit estate agent, with plenty of shelter, and next to a large car park. An ideal site for a night event. We orienteered on a map with no contours, seaside views, and a railway line bisecting the area from east to west.

Maria set the courses with a spread of high point controls either side of the line, and left or right of the centrally placed start. It was very important to note the crossing points on the railway line so as to avoid extra distance and not doubling back on yourself. I ventured along the Esplanade between control B and 17 and was amazed by the large houses which have been erected in recent years. They all have this panoramic view across Hobsons Bay.

The post event presentation dinner was at Pier 71, the Italian restaurant just 30 metres from the start. We all enjoyed a meal of pasta or pizza, and waited for the presentations. There were some surprise results with some competitors being able to join the podium with their last results, and another possible tie being resolved by the finish order in this final event. Amazingly, there three tied results, 2 firsts and 1 third. Maybe we need a statement from Bruce McAvaney as to whether this has ever happened before in the many years of park/street orienteering.

It’s thank you all of the course setters, helpers, and competitors for contributing to any enjoyable night series.

See you in the spring
