Jan Juc Nailed Again !!!

Jan Juc Nailed Again !!!

Is Jan Juc the perfect location for street orienteering ?? Cliff-side tracks, sandy trails, irregular street layout, watercourse and associated parkland snaking through the centre of the map, rolling hills, multiple walkways linking roads, ocean views - how could it be any better ?!?!

Course setter, Peter B, has once again captured all the features that the area has to offer, and set a course that challenged everyone's navigation and route selection.

In A grade, it was Sam M first home from Ron T, followed by regulars Andrew T and Toby C.

The smarter navigational choices of Don F, saw him first home in B grade followed by myself, Geoff L and Frank E.

Fiona made it a very successful night for the Fell family, by being first home in C grade, with Stuart McW next.

Heather L and John G enjoyed having an event in their back yard, being first home in D grade.

The leaders in the walking have changed from week to week for this series. This pattern continued, with Michael H the standout in this event with 67 points. In a tight finish for second place it was the astute navigator Helen A (59pts) that held off Fiona K and Des G (both on 58 pts).

We now have 4 events remaining in the series. Keep in mind that to qualify as the series winner in each of the grades, you must complete a minimum of 6 events in that grade.

For those participants with a competitive nature, you should study the overall results for your grade to get a clear understanding of your current standing and who your competitors are.

Of course, we are not all competitive and many of us seek the simple joy of participation in a sport that introduces us to many new neighbourhoods.

Next weeks event will Douglass St, Herne Hill on Thursday 9th Feb with the usual 7pm start.

Cheers
