Woodlands Summer 75 #3 – Saturday Feb 18, 6 pm

Nillumbik Emus ran the event on a well loved Tuckonie map with the assistance of some TK members. With 53 riders gathered there was plenty of action around the assembly area. The Woodlands map has been updated with the 2 x 4 track system and some newly mapped areas. Keith Wade put a lot of thought into the course planning. Geoff and Schon Hudson set up the registration and results system on the clubs new computers. Geoff has developed a very user friendly and compact system with results going up on a screen and a small but powerful battery storage.

All was going well until John Gavens had a serious fall which required a rescue. Phil Giddings abandoned his course to assist and with another rider Gavin Thomas raised the alarm. Thank you also to Carolyn Cusworth for rendering assistance. Keith and Rob drove out and brought John Gavens back to base. He was driven to hospital but fortunately, though sustaining a badly strained shoulder, suffered no breakages or dislocations, as first feared.

Other club members present were Joyce Rowlands who got a bit lost finding the event site, Jim Glaspole who had a solid ride.,Jeff Hughes who assisted with packing up, Daniel Edmonds and Peter Maloney who collected some controls before dark after solid rides. Helen Edmonds helped put out controls and Ron Frederick helped set up and pack up. Phil collected some controls, getting in just before dark; but one control had to be collected next day. Thanks to Geoff and Schon for fetching it in.
