‘Twas the first official race in the club’s orienteering year,
Before midday the first runners began to appear.
They came from Bendigo, Melbourne and overseas,
Ready to take on the spiderwebs between the trees.
One third of all runners took part on course one,
Ahead of Mikkel, Aston and Ben, Brodie has won.
Lots set out on the loops of course two,
Morten, Andrew and Nic were the top few.
The mapper Alex showed up for course three,
He had a win. Next in line was Raelee.
Yarra Valley did well on course number four,
But at the end of the day Jacqui came to the fore.
The kids all did well on course number five,
Ashley, Hugo and Isobel were in overdrive.
There were newcomers to the club who were out for a run,
I hope they found their way and had lots of fun.
Thanks to everyone who helped put on the event.
The satisfaction rate was close to 100 per cent.
Thanks for indulging my April Fools jest,
I think the idea was one of my best.
Clare & Charles
