Event 10 - Yarran Dheran, Mitcham

The Holidays are Here!

With end-of-term approaching rapidly, most scout groups have gone into hibernation for the summer period. From memory of my own time as a scout leader, it's a wonderful time of year when you can focus on relaxing with the family and enjoying the holidays -- instead of stressing about the impending meeting each week.

Congratulations to all leaders for surviving another year - please be assured that our community is intensely aware of the value that scouting contributes to our youth and our community. Enjoy a well earned rest!

Pictured left - our wonderful course setters this week - Denise Pike and Peter Grover. While we did offer opinions about possible control locations, it was Denise and Peter who so kindly took the controls and put them out earlier today. This allowed us to sleep in and spend some time planning a larger activity that we've got planned for late March. A wonderful Christmas present - sincere thanks to Peter and Denise.

This Evening's Course

Some people did have difficulty finding control #20 - in spite of our best efforts to coach less experienced folks at the start. The main issue here is that it's not especially close to a well defined attack point.

If coming from #5, it was pretty easy - just head up the track until you see the road / fence corner and the spur should be over your left shoulder. The cleared area that led down along the spur had vegetation either side - so that too could have been used.

Some came from15 - up to the road and along to that 4th bend in the road - where the road kicks left. If one had a compass, it would be easy to take a bearing to get onto the spur - - but if you step out from the road and you know what a spur looks like - it was pretty obvious.

The view from the end of the spur was pretty cool too. If you had trouble finding this spot, go and check it out next time you're in the area. It's well worth visiting!

 

The World According to Dave

Motor racing enthusiast and highly competitive walker - Dave Stillwell - seemed to have a pretty short course this evening. His GPS trace shows that he took a few shortcuts - which weren't against the rules - but did expose him to a modicum of risk. If you're out there and you decide to do such things, all we ask is that you be conservative - we need you to take care and not hurt yourself. It would spoil your evening and ours if one of our participants was injured - please take care!


The World According to Someone Else

To be fair - this participant was a newcomer that got cajoled - at the last minute - into travelling by bike.

No map board, a complex map, very little experience and the fast pace offered by a fit rider and good bike were a volatile mix - It was a great night for a ride and a terrific area to do it in. We're sure he had a great time and learned stuff that he can think about between now and our next event.

Rest assured Jack - this is probably the hardest course this season - if you survived this, you'll do just fine on the rest.
