Event 15 - Gardiner's Creek - Deakin Uni

We've been running events in Gardiner's Creek/Deakin Uni for 6 years now - and people never seem to tire of the area. Late last year, we were asked if the orienteering Sprint into Spring Series could use our map and we weren't really happy with the one that was there. The map this evening was the one used for that event - with an extra bit tacked on to the North - to try and provide a little more distance for those with longer legs. The downside of adding this extra distance was that it forced us to print the map at 1:5000 to print it on A4 paper - thereby making detailed areas somewhat harder to read for those that are visually challenged.

Our maps never stay still for long and those of you that ran through the university will realise just how quickly the area changes. Fortunately, as a result of our mapping efforts late last year we had a pretty good base - one that is reasonably clean and maintainable. So we'll spend time in the next few months tidying it up and improving those areas that don't represent what's there accurately enough.

Numbers were down this week - low 90s. Maybe it was the weather earlier in the day, maybe folks are bored (or terrified) of Deakin Uni...I have no idea. Recognising that we had good BBQ facilities, I purchased a few sausages and some veggie burgers and Peter and Kaye Brooks were kind enough to step in and get things up and going. Thanks also to Gillian and Gary Nutt for pitching in too - Gillian and Gary live next to 1st Bennetswood Scout Hall and have been associated with that group for many years.

Newcomers

A warm welcome to those of you that took part for the first time this evening - and also to those of you that haven't run in urban terrain before. Please don't be put off by the increased complexity of such maps - Deakin Uni is probably the most difficult that you'll see in our series. If you survived this evening, you'll have no trouble with the others. Based on this evening's results most of you already seem to have gotten the hang of this - Emma and Melissa were right up there among the leaders and Anne and Fiona got to 15 out of the 20 controls in their 60 minutes.

Thanks also to Bruce Arthur for bringing Mason, Torren and Sophie along - all of them (including Bruce) are National Champions within their age-group in this type of event. Based on the photos taken by Rachel and Darian, they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Deakin University Sculpture Walk (by Katherine)


Several of our controls this evening were on sculptures - and for those that are interested in such things, there is an organised walk that takes you around the entire collection. My personal favourite was Echidna just NW of control 18 (and down two levels).

Some of the others that you might have run past - or punched at - are shown below. For more details of the sculpture walk (and perhaps an opportunity to visit one of the many cafes on the campus) see -
