Suburban Adventure Racing 
Scout Adventure Racing


Event 1 - Mitcham

Welcome back!

It's Spring again - and daylight saving has returned. Everybody was looking quite refreshed after a 5-6 month break and it was obvious that one or two of us might have to do a bit of work to get back in condition over the next few months.

We were thrilled to get over 90 participants on this first evening - a great turnout, one that will increase when a few of our regulars return from holidays and overseas trips.  This week's event was held in Mitcham - in an area that was primarily streets. We have to do this for the first one or two weeks as local sunset is still around 7:40 pm. This means it's pitch dark by 8:00....when we send kind volunteers out to pick up controls. We do our best to close the course down before total darkness sets in (ie about 20 minutes after sunset).

We had all sorts of great ideas back in April. We made a huge list of hardware and software improvements and were sure that all were achievable as we had 5 months in which to do them. For better or worse we ended up running in New Caledonia and then New Zealand, then visiting interstate grandchildren, overseas for running in Slovenia and general tourist things in various other locations. All in all, we didn't get far through our list.

There's always tomorrow...

Our New Sign

Aha! One thing that did get done was a new sign for Suburban Adventure Racing.

As you travel along the main approach road to our events, look for this sign. In general, we try to point you somewhere helpful. Like the parking area closest to our event.

Thanks to our incredibly talented Graphics Designer, Katherine Dent for her assistance in producing all of our artwork - including the new fixture.

You can get copies of the fixture at any of our events. We'd be grateful if you could take 2-3 copies and stick one or two up in places that you think might be perused by interested people. Feel free to take some and pass them to friends and family.

 

Dodgy Timings?

 

Several people got strange split times for their first leg - and later that evening, we set up potential offenders and ran a test.

We cleared tag 600 and then pressed START, 3, 4, 16 and then FINISH in rapid order.

The results are strange - and we will investigate and report back. If appropriate, we may make minor adjustments to a few late penalties, but the results below won't change much.

Back soon - watch this space!

New Web Site

Over the next week, we plan to move to our new web site. In addition, we'll activate the Suburban Adventure Racing Facebook Page - the current links to these are:

http://street.orienteering.com.au/Sites/SAR01/index.html

and the FB page is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/731801940341849/

The Facebook page is a CLOSED Group - primarily to keep out trolls and spammers. If you'd like to join the group, please do so and one of our administrators will approve it fifthwith. If you'd like to be a group admin person, that works too....get in touch.

 

 

Attention Theatre Goers

The highly talented McGrail family are playing in the GSOV production of Pirates of Penzance. It's on soon - check out the brochure here if you'd like an entertaining night out at the Darebin Arts Centre. From one that's been there - easy parking and good refreshments before the show and during interval.

Which reminds me of a very old pirate joke...

Two pirates, who had not seen each other for some time, met up in The Black Spot pub. Since they had last met one pirate had lost his right hand and was wearing a patch over his left eye. 
The other pirate asked how he had lost his hand. 
"I was fighting foreign pirates in Penzance, one of them cut it off with a sword, I was lucky to survive, with the ships surgeon fitting me with a hook for my right hand". 
"And what about your eye"- he asked. 
"Well I was up in ships crows nest, when a seagull shat in my eye" 
"What; seagull shit made you blind?" - he asked, with astonishment. 
"No, but it was my first day with the hook"

Check out the picture of Andrew below - he certainly looks the part!
