Scout Adventure Racing


Event 11 - Blackburn South

Merry Christmas Everybody

As Christmas approaches, we were blessed with interesting terrain and perfect weather. While scouts have stopped for the year we still get around 100 regulars turning up and a steady flow of new chums that have heard about our series:

=> Harrison King, a very fit looking young lad, turned up with Dad Graham - initially Graham had planned to wait in the car, but he decided to try out the walking course. Harrison top scored the Junior section this evening - scoring 67 in 52 minutes. He had navigation issues finding control #10, but I suspect that he'll do better than this in the future. Dad did well too - returning after 58 minutes with a credible 63 points!

=> Welcome too to Caitlin Wood - a Rover friend of Ryan Beeby. Ryan briefed Caitlin before the event and then headed out to win the runners section....leaving Caitlin to make her own way. Well done Caitlin! 12 controls is a good effort for a first-timer!

 

Famous Author Visits Australia

Thanks to Wilf for coming along this evening. Wilf noted that few of the controls were on obvious features - and mentioned that he actually had to "orienteer" this evening. Those that take part in the series will realise by now that we try to avoid blindingly obvious features - preferring to use something nearby instead. The concept here is that of an Attack Point - a clear location that is easy to find. Once you've found the attack point, you can navigate in easily from there.

Wilf is the author of a  number of orienteering books - Schon and I met him at World Masters a few years ago, when it was held in Germany. We bought a couple of his more popular titles - Murder at the 14th Control and Modern Orienteering Training - an excellent introduction to orienteering techniques - one that continues to be relevant even 20 years after initial publication.

Christmas Dinner

Thanks to everybody that came along to the Christmas dinner this evening - apologies to Stuart, Hamish, Charlotte etc for delay in getting seated and finally getting their first course as others closer to the food table were getting stuck into 3rd helpings. The Thai restaurant did a superb job and everybody present seemed to be satisfied with the food - great quality Thai food, good value for money.

All the best for Christmas and we wish you all a safe and happy New Year. If any of you would like to grab a couple of our brochures and stick them up at work or pass them to friends, we'd be most grateful. We bring a stack of these things to each event - so please feel to take some or ask if they've run out.
