Wednesday, 5 April 2017
A lovely mild Autumn evening - the lack of daylight did not mean a lack of warmth, and conditions were ideal. We had a great turnout, and the new start location positioned us closer to the western parts of the map and allowed us to break out of our usual routines on this well used map (its a long time since I've ventured very far south of Hawthorn Road). Reg set a good challenging course with a nice baseline of 2 pointers in the centre, and plenty of options to improve our targets by venturing further afield.
Andrew was the only runner to achieve 36 points, while Vic and Lauris each got 32. Ian, Jay and Jenny all opted for a pre-7.45 return, putting them onto the Short course. On PW, Phil and Dave both scored 28, while Bernie, Annie and Pete all got 20. Meanwhile on the Score course, Steven and Andrew B each earned a maximum 100 points, followed by Bruce, Tony and Ron. An anonymous walker scored 78 points (please put your name on your cards!!), ahead of Gary, Kay and Michael.
See you next Monday at Warralong.
