Another week, another series - it's Spring Carnival time!  Winter is almost half over and before long we'll be basking in the gentle glow of evening sunshine.  Well a girl can dream ... Congratulations to Jenny Chapman, who joined the ranks of The Millennium Club by completing her 500th event.  

The five pointers were in easy reach, making the lower points the ones to think about.  For example, was no 3, so close to the start, a trap? Probably - I ran out of time to get 10 even though it was just within reach. Early decisions were potentially costly.  Ian emerged the winner on A course, ahead of Paul, Andrew, Tim and Geoff.  B course saw Tim claim victory with 66 points, just pipping Simon on 55, with Ian, Jay and Peter M making up the top five.  Dave had a clear win on PW with 58 points; Rob, Helen and Lyn all got 53, and Kay was fifth on 52.

The overall results will appear after the next event - then we'll see who has been promoted!

See you next Wednesday at Dandenong Creek in Heathmont.
