Event 15 - Ringwood Lake

Thank Heavens for the Cool Change

As we put the controls out earlier in the day, the temperature had already climbed to 35 degrees and we wondered if anybody would come along to the event.

Things got steadily worse during the day and mid-afternoon temperatures - according to my car - were hovering around 40 degrees. Surely all sane people would stay at home and take shelter from the heat?

Interestingly, around 80 brave souls ventured out to Ringwood Lake and were rewarded by a late-breaking cool change that arrived sometime between 5:30 and 6pm. The graph below shows how quickly the temperature dropped!

 

Those of you that took part in the event will realise that we take our duty of care for your safety quite seriously. We shortened the courses, counselled people on the hot conditions and provided a range of refreshments before, during and after the event.

There were the usual ice-cold water and cordial and in addition, Bill Henley turned up with an esky and a heap of icy poles for the kids that took part. My apologies to Adrian, who just missed out on the last icy pole...we owe you one, next time it gets hot.

What a Gate Scandal

Our apologies to those of you that were inconvenienced by closed gates this evening. As we field-checked the map and taped control sites, we checked all gates over the weekend and again on Monday and Tuesday. Gates that were open on all three occasions were mapped as such.

Sadly, most found that gates 1 and 2 that opened onto Bedford Road were the only usable gates.

Those of you that climbed gate 5 should consider yourself spanked. Please don't do this! It sets a bad example for little kids and, if observed by school staff or residents, it could lead to us being barred from using the area in future events.

Please view the activity as an "Adventure" - like all adventures, things sometimes go awry...and the odds are that this will happen to most taking part. The challenge - to you - is to quickly work out an alternative strategy to get you back on course. Your solution should be safe and within the rules of our competition.

Finally, thanks to Braeden and Sam for pointing out that the pedestrian gate - just to the right of the closed sliding gate number 4 - was closed but not locked. They opened the gate, stepped through and as they ran off it swung closed behind them.

The World According to Dave

While not the shortest this evening - Dave was close. His 5.05 km compares pretty favourably to Eric's 4.6 km.
