Event 2 - sURREY dIVE

Our Hosts for the Evening

Thanks to 1st Mont Albert and 9th Box Hill for use of their facilities this evening. We were blessed with superb conditions - mild weather, late in the day with a gentle breeze - perfect running conditions. Ian Talbett, the leader of both groups helped earlier in the day setting up the course and then pitched in with our other organisers/volunteers - Lauris, Claire, Ian and Schon to run the event.

There were map changes! As we wandered around yesterday to set the course, we realised that Whitehorse Council had made a huge number of changes to the area around the swimming centre. Lots of the old stuff had been removed and heaps of new stuff had been added. The new paths, boardwalks, toilets and lots of additional walls left us no choice; we could either rework the existing map extensively or begin again. We chose the latter choice - starting the new map around Monday lunchtime.

By late that night, it seemed OK and it seems that while there is much work to be done, nobody was inconvenienced by map issues. We hope you liked it - it's a wonderful area - made even more so by the work of our local council.

Our Guests for the Evening

The Mont Albert North Scout Troop joined us this evening - led by a very experienced leader, Phillip Dodson. Phillip was a huge help in coaching his scouts and then walking them through the registration process - much appreciated Phil....scout leaders pitching in like this means our volunteers can head out for a run all the sooner.

The Course

This evening's menu included a 1:4000 map of Surrey Dive - that provided a 2.1 km sprint course for adults and a 1 - 1.5 km score course for Juniors. On completing the LINE course, there was a map exchange - where people switched to a black and white street map that provided a 4-5 km street run. Interestingly, I had assumed that the best score course would start 18, 19 and go anti-clockwise around to finish 15, 20, Home.....but discussion with those that took part suggests that there were shorter routes. Course lengths varied from 6.8 km up to 7.8 km.

A special feature of this evening's courses was the ability to use controls 1-5 as a "warm-up". It seems that when the clear control failed last week, we replaced it promptly with one of our spares - which happened to be labelled as #6. When the deluge of rain hit us, we threw everything into boxes and packed the car to head for home.....unknowingly, putting the spare #6 (now programmed as a CLEAR control) into the box. Thus, as people punched at control #6 on the Western side of the park.....it cleared their tag.

We've recovered as best we can with the data available. For most of you, we can see the time you passed through the registration computer - and we used that as your approximate start time. While we do recognise that some of you like to stand around and plot strategy / route choices for several minutes - we point out that this is not supposed to happen. The correct procedure is to take your map, press the START control and then turn the map over. Those that study the map for long periods before starting gain an advantage by doing so - which is probably not fair to others that act in concurrence with the rules. The general concept is that you are allowed to think for as long as you want - but thinking time is part of the game and should be added to your time.

So next week - take the map, press start and GO. Enjoy the thrill of thinking at high-speed (or whatever speed you run at). Savour the delight of finding the correct route through complex terrain and recognise that we all make mistakes or poor choices every now and then. The key here is to think about why we made these choices and see if, by experience, we can avoid similar issues in the future. If you never make mistakes, you're not running fast enough.

We recognise that this may be controversial, but it helps make the point about studying the map intensively before pressing start. Bruce Paterson suggested that scoring from Control #6 on might be fairer and for those of you that care, here's what would happen if we did this.

Next Week

 

Next week's event is in Blackburn North - a great map that covers the parks and gardens on either side of the Eastern Freeway. Please note - it's Melbourne Cup Day - and the scouts will run a BBQ....please bring some money for a sausage, drink, icy pole etc.
