We’re moving away from the Dawnbreaker event this year to allow everyone a chance to sleep in!  Also, as the first Sunday of the month is in Queen’s Birthday weekend we thought we’d stick to our routine of having a run on the Sunday closest to the Shortest Day (21st).

‘Straight as a Die!’

What does the subtitle mean?  Well, we’re all going to be introduced to the concept of a ‘straight line’ map run by Graeme Matheson.  Triallists will be familiar with this concept but this isn’t a competitive version — its a fun one so we can all see what its like.

Instead of the more familiar tulip diagrams, all the instructions are given as though you’re travelling in a straight line e.g. if you were to turn right at a crossroads, the diagram would show 2 roads going off on the left with the arrow that you follow pointing straight ahead!  Confused?  I expect we all will be at some point during the run.

So, its not competitive, its not an intelligence test, its a bit of fun for a winter’s day.  We’re starting, as normal, at the Riverside carpark opposite Princess Margaret Hospital at 10.30am.

Any questions about the “how to” of the run will be answered at the briefing, otherwise contact Graeme M.

NB: There's lots of road works outside PMH at the moment and we're not sure when they'll be over so we're moving the meeting spot to on-site carpark at Princess Margaret Hospital at the west end (basically over the road from where we've met in the past).
