First time Park O course setter, Viola O'Connor, set an excellent park course at the Botanic Gardens. Intricate tracks in and around the main gardens area made sure careful navigation was needed both early in the course and again over the concluding controls. The longer legs in the middle ensured competitors would be suffering some sort of fatigue for that last tricky phase. Early starters probably had the best of the conditions although even then the mosquitoes were a hassle! For the later starters automatic sprinklers coming on, followed by a storm and rather dark conditions made life interesting.
