Run ((orienteering)) 48:00 [3] *** 5.0 km (9:36 / km)

Would have expected that the first actual event in Victoria was something not to be missed, but thought I'd better not enter while our area was under a cloud and by the time it wasn't the entry quota was full, so instead I re-ran a 2015 event at Eaglemont Flats.

The map is a few years old, which means some of the tracks were bigger (although sometimes very muddy - a reminder of why I usually gave the Banyule Flats track a miss between June and September) and some of them no longer existed. Some of the lower river flats were also very muddy on the surface although not boggy; my guess is that these were areas which were flooded back in April and it took weeks for the floodwaters to clear from the depressions. The vegetation was also very wet even though it hasn't rained since Thursday night; must have been a very heavy dew.

Found this hard going at times and not always easy to pinpoint controls; not much fluency in the terrain parts (which seemed pretty thick). One control was unreachable in dark green which presumably wasn't there in 2015, and a bit scrappy on a few others. Better in the second half.
