The fact that the weather was good was a welcome relief after last week. There were eleven competitors, come to test their skills in the forest of the Muldoon Reserve (the old Spring Gully Pony Club Reserve). Again Jimmy Cameron showed his skills as a course setter, striking a fine balance between testing the competitors’ navigational skills and still ensuring that the challenge was within their experience range.
That the winner would be a team from Camp Hill was never in doubt – just which one would be the question. So it was that the Camp Hill Stars were the Stars! Oliver Martin (back from China), Lachlan Feuerherdt and Toby McCaig consistently showed good planning and careful navigation and were the highest scorers in most of the races. Congratulations to the winners and to all the other competitors who braved varying weather conditions and other challenges put up by the various competition areas.
Next week will be the Kids Rule, a race where the competitor guides a parent (parents?) around a thirty minute course at Strathdale Park; the same scoring system will apply but there will not be any prizes for the winners, instead we will have a sausage sizzle followed by the presentations. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for good weather – it is the shortest day and it would be good if everyone could come along.
Next week we are at Strathdale Park. To get there travel out McIvor Road and turn right into Crook Street just past the All Seasons; look for a parking area on the left after a short distance.
