Event Report: Bush 2 Helena Junction/Mt Billy

Sunday, 09 May 2021

Happily the Mt Billy event was held on Sunday after an interupted preparation due to Covid 19 lockdowns and restrictions. In the end with fine weather, there was a good turnout of 91 competitors who tested themselves on courses set by Matt Seward, Rachel West and Craig Dufty.

A huge tree trunk crossing Yarra Rd found on the Saturday prior to the event added some access concerns for the setters. Half the road was cleared Sunday morning when Jack Dowling used his 4WD to pull much of the tree trunk out of the way. Thanks to Jack and Sue for taking care of this while also towing the toilet and collecting controls.

Thanks to Liam, Amy Dufty and Ruby Phillips who helped with set up. Thanks to our control collectors Rob and Lois West, Hadrien Devillepoix and Ellie Sansom, Penny, Phil and Michael Dufty, Rob Beattie, Toni Frank and Matt Seward. Thanks again to Rob and Lois West who also helped with instruction. Thanks to Melinda Richards for taking care of the computer operation.
