Event 14 - Vermont

Lost and Found

Keys now returned to a grateful owner.

Our apologies - the second hand Subaru advertised for sale is no longer available.

Welcome to Wobbies World

This evening's course took many participants through the area previously occupied by Wobbies World - an amusement park that operated in Springvale Road from the early 70's until the late 90's. Wobbies World was, in the opinion of many....a bit tacky. It featured rides based on a Bell helicopter, local W class trams, mower driven all-terrain-vehicles and a miniature train. In addition, there was a theatre that operated inside a Vickers Viscount propeller driven aeroplane. In spite of widespread advertising, costs continued to rise and the rides became even more tacky and dilapidated during the mid 90s. In 1998, the park went out of business and closed.

Those of you that remember the Late Show may remember its sketch on Pissweak World - a parody on the park and its mediocre advertising.

Several-minute advertisements for mediocre theme parks with the 'Pissweak' brandname, e.g. Pissweak World, Ye Olde Pissweeke Worlde, Pissweak Movieworld, Pissweak Town. Each would feature a guided tour with examples of the many low-quality attractions. Featuring the Pissweak Kids and Tom Gleisner as the park guide, with narration by Tony Martin.

Examples (from Pissweak Town):

  • "Ride a bucking Bronco" - clip showing a child sitting on a Golden Retriever (a.k.a. Charlie the Wonderdog).
  • "See a bush printing press" - clip of a man holding a child's head on top of a photocopier printing out a copy.
  • "Ride a stage coach" - clip shows dejected children inside a trailer being driven down a road.

Wobbies World was probably fun for some little kids, but older kids stayed away in huge numbers (it was considered a "moped" experience - like riding a moped...it's fun until your friends find out you did it.

In 2012, the State Government built the new Forest Hill Police Station on the site. That was the big building you passed on the way to control #16 (or perhaps running 16-5)

Greg Andrews achieves a Personal Best!

I think he needs to recalibrate his Garmin Watch. As he finished his run this evening - only 2 minutes and 15 seconds behind Andrew Horne, his watch advised him that he had just completed his fastest kilometre and his fastest mile - it did, however note that his predicted recovery time was 3 days.

Rachel Returning from Injury

The mild conditions brought people out from everywhere - and we were pleased to see Rachel amongst them. Rachel, a top runner when fit, has been recovering from injury and is gradually working her way back into form. She was the lass with legs covered strapping tape - but she assures me that it's just there to hold things in place and that she's fine to run. Her first run back after a long rest period proved very impressive - only a few minutes behind today's leader.

Welcome to our Newcomers

Lots of new faces this evening - and we hope to get a chance to catch up with some of you in the future - our apologies...a couple of regulars were otherwise engaged, so we didn't get much time to chat.
