Suburban Adventure Racing 
Scout Adventure Racing


Event 12 - Blackburn North

The parkland and rough ground on either side of the Eastern Freeway provide some very pretty control locations - as I ran through the pine trees near #14, I thought it would be nice to provide an event format that ran the entire course within that terrain. Those of you that have run over pine needles will understand - the soft ground, the smell of pine needles, the shade and the cool breeze that one experiences running through pine forests.

Mapping Issues

Our maps are a work in progress - one of the advantages of me running on them in recent weeks is I get to see what they're like in actual use. My general impression is that the early maps that were produced for our series are pretty awful - but the quality has gradually improved as we've learned more about the mapping software and how to map different sorts of terrain. As a result, we've thrown a few of our early maps away and started again - most recently with the Deakin Uni map, but in the next few weeks, we'll review all of our maps and see how they stack up. If anyone out there is interested in mapping and would like to assist/learn how to do this stuff, I'd be happy to work with them to teach them how it's done.

Late Penalties

As I ran through the park to control #7, Michael cursed me for setting a longer course than normal - one that saw him becalmed on the other side of the freeway as his 60 minute time limit approached. He sat in a corner pouting after the event and made a strange noise when we poked him - but eventually seemed to recover enough to pick up some controls. As we laughed about his 96 point penalty afterwards, he mumbled something about defamation and a call from his lawyers....so we agreed to submit his claim to the Suburban Adventure Racing Court of Appeals for Slander and Malice. Sadly, we're now able to report that his appeal was unsuccessful and that after much deliberation, a succinct verdict was delivered ...."Suck it up princess..."

On the good side, we're checking to see if this is a new record and, if so, we'll submit it to the StreetO Guinness Book of Records and nominate Michael for inclusion in the Suburban Adventure Racing Hall of Fame.

Next Week

Is at Tally Ho Business Park - the courses will be complex, but short - we hope to keep the entire course within the business park and the nearby Burwood Reserve. The start location is at the Tennis Club in the North-West corner of the reserve.
