BBQ Stakes 21 April 2010
Initially, 55 signed the book in sheet.
At the end they kept on coming in, by an extra four.
59 was the last total I heard, Damian McCauley did the timing, having won again , after four* weeks from his previous win.
He arrived in time to carry out most of the duties, we think the clock may have been started a little early today.
Three or more new starters today, were told the system and method, and a couple of them finished in the front of the field.
It takes a while to establish a "handicap" and then the handicap is adjusted according to a well defined set of rules.
Today we saw Geoff Monro and alo Geoff Hawke running. Geoff Monro was timed at 29:10 net.
Today the placegetters were Roger Braid in first eligible, Geoff King taking second place and Caroline Campbell in third eligible, although having slightly sore legs from the Black Mountain Run Up the day before.
Progressive points in this year's pointscore total for the following are noted, Terry Levings 889, Raymong Chao 795 points and Damian MacCauley with 743 points.
Anyone can check their own points on the weekly sheets prepared by Terry Dixon, and available at the run each week.
Doug Fry handed out the place cards, and Brian Crowe and Caroline Campbell did the recording of finishers.
Kerry Tanner had a run this week, seemingly getting over her aches and pains following her six foot participation.
