Vic Relays. Took me a short time to realise that this looked like a sprint map but wasn't. A standard all to its own. Went as hard as I could to not stand out against other team members and achieved that in splitting their two times.
Not sure I like the idea of the Vic Relay becoming a sprint relay event (next year at Westgate Park). But I don't like the idea of two separate relay events (one bush, one sprint). When it comes to Bendigos time might have to argue for something that actually fits the IOF relay profile- limited visibility in particular. I think the current state of the New Saint Mungo map fits the bill, though it is at 1:5,000 scale. I think visibility is the more important issue.
