Mondays have seemed to feature climactic variations this year. Academy Hill was HOT. Course setter Hugh gave us a tricky layout, and stretched the course lengths a bit, so it was a tough one both physically and mentally - a good final tuneup before the Champs (unless like me you had already entered the tapering/carbo loading phase ...)
The big points on A course went to Ted, Steven and Ian. On B, the winners were Ian, Andrew and Jay. Rick, Tony and Andrew were quickest on C, and Mark brought Denise's winning streak to an end on D, with Ray claiming third. PW honours went to Dave, Roger and Helen.
This was the penultimate scoring event for the series, so what are the scenarios? A1 will not change for Andrew, Ian and Steven. On A2, Warwick has a chance at beating Rick, but he needs to score 96 and have Rick score 94 or less; Ian G will finish in third either way. B looks like a certain win for Jay and second for Andrew, but Lauris will be waiting anxiously to see if Mark completes his 11th event and claims third. Ian D has C1 sewn up; Reg is just three points ahead of Jenny, but if Tony runs C next week he will take second and push the other two down a notch. C2 has been a fascinating three way battle for second, with Stuart entrenched as winner. Murray now has a one point advantage over Margi and Greg who are tied; mathematically, Peter and Eric could also claim second or third!
The outcome on D course all hinges on whether Denise competes next week; if she does, she will take the overall lead from me, moving Robert down to third. PW1 is settled for Dave, Michael H and Helen. Bernie and Annie will take the top two spots on PW2, but Allan's third place is under threat from Gwennyth and Lara. PW3 will go to Ian S, Ilze, and Suzanne.
Next Monday's event is at Camelot Rise in Glen Waverley, where final outcomes will be decided once and for all! Don't forget that series prizes will be awarded on WEDNESDAY March 15, at the BBQ and Awards Night in Ringwood East. It's an occasion not to be missed!
