Event 11 - Damper Creek

So Many Newcomers

Welcome to those of you that were attending for the first time this evening - we hope you enjoyed the event and look forward to seeing you at future events. Welcome back to Bill Borrie - over from the USA again this year...and decided to drop in for a run.

This evening was a stark contrast to last week's. The storm cells that formed over Melbourne's Eastern suburbs generated hailstones, the like off which we've never seen. Fortunately, people were sensible enough to take shelter initially and then head for the finish as quickly as possible. With a few minor exceptions, our equipment survived the torrential rain - although we had moved it to safety about 15 minutes beforehand when we noted that the electrical storm was coming our way.

Cut-Down Equipment

You guys are all hardened professionals now - and know how our system works. You grab your tag, clear it, check in at the computer, hit the start control and head out onto the course. Easy!

As a result, we thought we'd operate a stripped down configuration during the holiday period to make things a little easier for our volunteers. This seemed to work this evening - although the tantrum thrown by the split printer did cause some concern. We treated it the same as any child having a tantrum - we ignored it. Thanks to everybody that headed over to the results display to check their score and times. Thanks to Kafay's efforts, we did eventually get it working again, but too late for most people.

Training Corner

It was great to overhear one of our teams discussing how they found a particularly difficult control this evening. "We just aimed-off and then followed the vegetation boundary until we came to the control". Right technique, right terminology - bragging rights well deserved.

Anybody that ran this map previously will realise that we did a lot of work on it for this event. In years gone by, it was all we could do to organise the event each week - whatever map was there had to be good enough - and we tended to restrict checkpoint locations based on map clarity. As our maps get better, we can use much more interesting control locations - and this evening was an initial trial. With luck, we'll get a couple of days to field-check and update our Yarran Dheran map for what promises to be a spectacular event next week.

Yarran Dheran is a nature reserve in Mitcham and we start at Schwerkolt Cottage - a historic area at the Eastern side of the reserve - complete with scenic surroundings, toilets and BBQ facilities. If someone would like to bring some sausages along, perhaps we could stay back for a New Year's picnic/social event. We'll have our hands full setting up the event - so if you'd like to organise the social side of things, just get in touch.
