Results: Marong Reserve

Foggy in Bendigo this morning, but it was clear enough in Marong for us to see one end of the oval from the other. Julie must have set a hard course today – only a couple of teams got all 20 controls, and a few more teams were late back. Even one second late costs you 10 points!

Some wet feet today, yeah?

Big thank you to the parents and kids who helped out – supervising at the railway line, and collecting controls afterwards. It makes our job so much easier.

This is one of the longer courses on the calendar, and no one collected all 20 controls this week.

It took me a while to find some of the control sites when I picked up last year’s map, which is why I decided to stay out on the bike around Lake Tom Thumb. I expected to see a few lost people, but you all looked like you knew where you were and what you were doing, so well done.

Everyone who crossed the road followed the rules and punched #45 twice – thank you.

The Bendigo Primary School Championships was held at Mandurang, starting at the oval and extending into the bushland behind the sports ground. Jim had promised us a mostly fine day, and mostly delivered – apart from an anxious 10 minutes before the first Starts as it clouded over and a few raindrops came down.

We had over 500 primary school competitors from 12 different schools around Bendigo; from as far south as Romsey, Taradale and Elphinstone, and from Goornong to the north. Special mention must go to Lockwood PS (1 student) and Big Hill PS (2 students).

It all started at 10:30am, and I was out on the course for most of the morning, helping kids navigate their way to the next control without getting too lost dis-oriented. At times it seemed as though all 500 kids were on the same track at the same time… it was like trying to herd ants! I have to say though, that the Space Racers weren’t the ones asking for help. At the end of the day, we managed to get all 500 back onto the oval without losing any, and we finished off with presentations shortly after 1:30pm.

Today was always going to be interesting. Jim had devised a tricky little course with two red loops and one blue loop, and you had to get the red loops done before you could tackle the blue loop. And then Jim ran off to Tasmania to compete in the World Orienteering trials at St Helens (we’ll have his results for you later) leaving Julie to explain red loops and blue loops to parents and kids.

The kids “got it”, and everyone headed off looking like they knew what they were doing and where they were going. I was manning the download box as everyone came back in, and several pairs got all 20 controls. That’s a huge WELL DONE to you guys.

Did you notice that lean, fast-looking teenager hanging around looking a bit annoyed? Well, that’s James, and he raced around the lot in 12 minutes or so. BUT, he missed a control! So everyone who got all 20 controls because you read your map properly, beat one of our best junior orienteers. (Sorry ’bout that James ūüôā ).

A big thank you to the half a dozen kids and parents who helped us pick up controls and pack up the gear at the end. We’re all volunteers, doing this for the sport we love, and every extra pair of hands helps.

Next weeks course at White Hills

Will be a 3 loop course

From the Start, you will have a choice of the Football Oval, or the Gardens. One pair of each team, will do one of these loops 1st, while the other pair will do the opposite loop, for example, the Team from Bendigo Seniors, which will be¬†Peter, Colin, Julie and Louise, are going to¬†have two pairs. Colin and Peter will do the Football Oval 1st, while Julie and Louise will go to the Gardens. When they have done ‘their’ loop, they will go and do the other loop.

Once you have done these 2 loops (or part of), there will be ‘5’ more controls to get (blue on map). To get to these controls, you need to return to the assembly area/start, punch control #45 on the fence corner, then go and collect controls 46 – 50. You will only score point for controls 46 – 50 if you have been to control 45, likewise, after punching control 45, you can’t go to controls 30 – 44

Results: Strathdale Park

Our first race of the Series took place on Saturday. We had a lot of new competitors and some experienced people from last year. It was good to see some of the older Space Racers take new people onto their teams and give them some help thanks Michael and Daniel!.

Lachlan Cherry is no longer competing as a Space Racer but he did the course as a warm up for his afternoon Bush Orienteering competition ‚Äď scorched around and picked up twenty controls in about twenty minutes! He also kept an eye on the first timers. Thanks Lachlan!
