On a fine, clear day in Ballarat on Saturday 5 December, 18 teams tackled the 9th Annual aMAZEing Ballarat. This year’s event was reduced to 3 hours, but this still had most teams busy throughout discovering back streets and little known facts about this historical city.

Teams were caught off-guard this year, when their first task had to be completed before they left the start area and without the use of their mobile devices. Most discovered that they didn’t know Victoria as well as they thought, as they had to place 10 ‘smallish’ townships onto a blank map of the State. Although one team did get all correct, but it did have a Forester in its midst!

There was also a guesstimate exercise on the course this year with teams having to estimate the number of smarties in a jar. A few teams got within 5% of the correct total which was a great result considering there were 852 in the jar.

Target shots with a tennis ball proved something of a challenge for a few of the teams, and the location of Adam Lindsay Gordon’s Commemorative statue stumped some as well – perhaps they were looking for a figure or a bust, when they should have been looking for a horse!

When the time came for the usual handout of prizes and all the calculations had been completed, the real winners again were the local fundraising group for Cancer Research, the Balladonors (who will be presented with a cheque for $1000 this week), and the beneficiaries of the ABC Giving Tree program, because 18 gifts were added to the pile in the local ABC Radio station.

Eurekans

Please see roster attached and hopefully we can cover all that is listed here.  It is meant to get as much as possible locked in, but I am well aware that it will need some adjustment.  We may need to do a little fancy footwork around the Aus Long but I’m sure we will make it all happen.  Please let me know if you have been placed somewhere which just can’t work or even volunteer yourself into something extra if you have the time.

 

Regards,

Mark Valentine

Next Meeting is Monday evening at 7pm at ELC.  Agenda will be to sort out rosters for events in the Aus Champs.  If unable to attend and you have special requests please reply to this notice.  Remember we need your assistance for Monday Sept 28 at Fed Uni, Fri Oct 2 at St Pats and Sat Oct 3 at Chapel Flat.  And it is not too late to book in for the dinner at the Golden City on Thurs Oct 1 –  it would be good to have a Eureka contingent that night.

Just a reminder to you all that the early bird entry date closes on Tuesday night at 11.59pm.  While many of you have key roles, there will in most cases be ample opportunity for you to run on some or all of the days. As the “hosts” it would be good to be seen in the bush as well as around the organising areas.
