1 Devonport Gift Meet Updates.... on Wed Dec 29, 2010 6:04 pm


Devonport Gift Heat winners:

H1: James Boden (9) 48.12

H2: Tom Burbidge (16) 47.47

H3: Derek Collinge (15) 48.13

H4: Thomas Pfundt (36) 46.22

H5: Daniel Reeves (33) 46.38

H6 Max Waldron (20) 46.99

Fastest 2nd placegetters to advance to the final:
D Lahey (24) - 2nd in heat 2.
B Matthews (16) - 2nd in heat 5.

James Boden had his 400m mark in Devonport reduced to 9m, but still won the first heat of the 400m Devonport Gift.

Pretty ordinary by the TAL to wait until the guy accepts before they tell him the news his mark had been cut from 14m to 9m.

They've had ample time to relay this information but waited until the last minute to let him know.

The actual mark isn't the problem, it's the fact they didn't let us know, say a few weeks ago when we could have looked at our options and perhaps run Boden at the Bay Sheff carnival.

Still not sure how they can reduce a declared mark that is based on all the performances already declared?

Given the results - the variance in times is comical. Boden wouldn't have had a hope off 14m anyway....

Pfundt looks a moral.


Further info to hand on the Boden mark readjustment. Following the heat results, the handicapper apparently apologised for the re-handicap, admitting in the context of the event, it was too heavy. Nice to hear a handicapper admit an error.

Devonport Gift Final

1st Thomas Pfundt (36)
2nd Daniel Reeves (33)
3rd Max Waldron (24)
4th Tom Burbidge (16)
Time: 45.7

Winner won easily with the frontmarkers dominating.

I believe we may not have heard the last of the Boden re-handicap. I'm reliably informed the handicapper is furious with a certain Tassie trainer who complained bitterly about Boden's original mark of 14 - only to have his own charge smash 47sec in the heat which would have clearly beaten Boden, had he run off his initial 14m....

Case of a bird-brained trainer effectively shitting in his own nest.

Women's 400m
1 Tabitha West (12)
2 Bridgid Connolly (21)
3 Abbey DeLa Motte (22)
Time: 54.??

Apparently West was brilliant for 380m before getting the staggers and Connolly nearly got over the top of her.

Women's 70m Final
included both backmarkers Melissa Breen & Alicia Wrench-Doody with Breen just shading Doody on the line. However neither girl placed in the final. Winner was Morgan Gaffney in 8.52.....

70m Open final was won by Jordan Tronnolone. (Finally YGTS enjoy some success in a post Xmas meet!) Hip Hip hoo-bloody-ray!

Does this discourage you from attending in the future?

This should make anyone competing in the SAAL or VAL feel lucky for their level of professionalism!

G'day Iron M,

Let's put it this way, "One swallow does not a summer make."

I've been to several Tassie Christmas carnivals and had many terrific times and had very few disappointing ones. Even when I never won anything over there, I still enjoyed the meets, the atmosphere & the people and kept going back. I enjoy it too much to worry about one unfortunate episode.

This was the first time I've experienced this and as I said earlier, the handicapper admitted he'd got it wrong, so we move on.

We'll be back in 2011/2012 - I'm already planning it.

And it's no big deal really, James Boden could not have hit them with an MCG goal post, even off 14m, so those who will end up with the flack are those who made the handicapper look foolish.

We ended up with a win on the night with young Jordan Tronnolone collecting his first ever open sash, with his narrow win in the Devonport 70m.

James Boden retains his 800m mark and hopefully he goes well tonight.

Should be a good night's racing, albeit very cold night, at Devonport.

That is a very level headed view. Thanks for the response.

Good luck for the remaining races.

30th December 2010

Men's 800m was won by a local in 1-45. James Boden in the red in the final and conceding 20m to the runner in white finished 3rd in about 1-46.

Women's 800m was won by SA's Bridgid Connolly off 55m. That's a 2nd & 1st for Bridgid in her first trip to Tassie.

200m coming up. SA athletes Andrea DiPaolo and Lucy Buckley both made the final.

Robbie James just missed the men's 200m final which is dominated by Tassie runners.

9 Re: Devonport Gift Meet Updates.... on Thu Dec 30, 2010 10:36 pm


Thomas Pfundt won again - the men's 200m in 20.7 off 17m.

Abbey Walters won the women's 200m in 23.8.
