MelBushO at Maroondah Reservoir on Sunday March 28

Our third MelbushO for March was held in the graceful surrounds of Maroondah Reservoir Park, just past Healesville. The trees were starting to show their autumn colours. The terrain was a mix of grassy slopes with scattered trees, some thick vegetation where staying on the tracks was well advised; numerous small man made features such as rotundas and picnic tables; and one really large man made feature – the dam wall!  Running across this while admiring the expansive view across the water, was a highlight.

Plenty of newcomers tried their hand at navigating around the courses; though we couldn’t persuade the visiting lizard (or its owner) to have a go!

Thanks to Ruth and the Yarra Valley crew who put on a highly enjoyable event.
