Tuesday Event Report

Well here we are at the end of an enjoyable Western Autumn Series for 2018. This year we introduced and trialled the MapRun app. which uses GPS on your phone to locate controls. A number of competitors used the app and were keen to hear the familiar beep from their phone when at the correct light pole.

The final event was held on the Yarraville map with narrow streets to the south and tree lined avenues to the north of Somerville Road. The weather was kind to us as it has been for most of the series, and we had an influx of visitors from the Eastern suburbs for this final event. The presentations were made after a welcome meal at the Yarraville Club, and it’s congratulations to those who made the podium. Actually, we should congratulate and thank all who competed during the series.

Thanks to Jenny and John for supplying food and drink and equipment, Judi for overall organisation, the Gavens family for managing MapRun, and Edward for processing the results.

If you want to rerun any of the courses from the series, you can with the MapRun app. All events (Melbourne and Geelong) are available under the applicable tab and “Past Events”. Select any event.  Then go to “Go to Start” as normal and the event will open without the need of a PIN.  You need to go to the start, controls and finish as for a normal event. Upload is optional.

Don’t forget the 6-event Geelong night series starting on Thursday 14th of June. The fixture can found here.  Format for the events is A 50, B 45, C 40, PW 50 minutes. Informal meal after.
