Belmont Regional Park, 3rd December 2017
Planner: Mark Malone
Some comments Monday 4 Dec from course planner Mark Malone. Who said he was whacked today. No wonder, he's probably the only person to have been to every control...
- #64 was most popular with 22 visits (the bidi bidis won), with #59, #69 & #23 getting 20-21 visits.
- 18 teams found the hut at #100. #51, #53, #82, #65 and #91 round out the top 10 with 14 or more each.
- All the top 10 CPs were in the bush area to the south, with the exception of #91 not far north of the start/finish.
- No one went to Dry Creek CPs 52,63, 30, or 54 in the top NW, and only one team went to 7 of the northern/eastern-most points.
- Many of the three hour teams were tempted by the high points in the bush, but struggled to get back in time. There were plenty of points closer to home, but hopefully the bush was more fun, and points and time became a secondary concern.
Here are the 2017 results, after arithmetical checking and consideration of claims. The latter was quite straightforward really: all claims for #71 were allowed, seems that the ribbon was blown away or eaten:-) But those for 91, 82, 51, 65, 22 and 73 were not accepted. There was only one claim for each, and 6-17 other teams found them. Changes to the provisional results for any reason are shown with an asterisk below.
We have also drawn up some of the top routes. We have taken some liberties to try and make them legible, especially on popular routes. But of course teams were not necessarily there at the same time, or going in the same direction! Or for an animation of half a dozen teams who post their GPS tracks on Strava, you can watch their dots move over the map. Un-tick Megan, Andy, John, Dan and Peter, who appear to be non-rogainers that happened to be in the area. Jon and Emilee were in the same team, so un-tick one of them. Enjoy!
