This is one of those maps where you start off plunging downwards, feeling fantastic! Then the awful truth hits as you realise you have to climb all the way back up. Time management becomes critical, as the laws of physics say what goes downhill fast, must go up slower. And so it proved. No-one on the Target course made it back early enough to qualify for the short course. Winners were Vic and Josie with 8 targets. In the PW category, Phil got 6 targets, while Annie and Ros both got 5. Meanwhile on the score course, Ian got the lot, with Warwick the runner up on 94 points. Tony, Andrew and Dave were the top scorers on PW.
We're 9 weeks in to our first 15 week series, and with the best 8 results counting, people are starting to drop their lowest scores. Lauris is out in front on the Long Target course, just ahead of David, with Ray third. Ian leads the Short Target course by one point from Jay. Henk heads up PW from Noel and Ian, with Mike just out of the top three. Roger, Robert and Warwick are the front runners on the Score course, while Gwennyth, Dave and Suzanne lead PW.
Next week's event is at Bellfield. Remember - there's chocolate at stake for the overall placegetters, so make sure you get your quota of 8 events to be in contention!
