The first official event of the Monday Autumn series was held in very summer like conditions. With only two weeks until we bid farewell to daylight savings, it was a good opportunity to enjoy an event with visibility before we plunge into darkness and torchlight. A new start location in the north meant some of us were on streets we'd never visited before. Course setter Ilze set us a real puzzler, and we soon got back into the swing of aiming for targets (multiples of 4 points), with its associated decision making - will I aim for 4 more points and take the risk, or will I play it safe? The Target format certainly pushes you to go harder, and offers a different kind of exercise for your brain - definitely well worth a try. It's very flexible as you adjust your aim as you go, rather than pre-setting your objective. If you are looking for something new, why not give it a go?
No-one was able to achieve the full 9 targets (36 points), but 3 runners managed 8 targets - Chris, Lauris and Josie. On the PW course, Phil managed 7 targets (28 points), with Helen and Ros on 6 apiece. On the Score course, four runners had a perfect score of 100 - Steven, Ian, Ron and Bruce; Dave topped the PW results with 74 points, ahead of Michael and Gary.
The next event is at Kangaroo Very Flat in Murrumbeena. Season tickets will be on sale. We also have a couple of course setting vacancies, so check the signup sheet.
