Saturday saw the club champs held in conjuction with the AGM 2015. The event was based at Kincraig village hall. The format was a handicap score with runners having to collect a pre-assigned number of controls.
A highly scientific forumla was used to calculate this - it may need to be made more scientific for next year....
In the end everyone seemed to enjoy Janette's courses on a clear winters morning.
Gemma Karatay continued her run of good form to take the overall win and first senior woman. Johannes Petersen was first senior man. Izzy Cox was first junior (after a close finish with Katrina McGougan who unfortunately got one control too few).
Peter Lamb was first veteran man and Jo Cummng first veteran women.
Thanks to Janette for planning.

A simple Score format with a mass start.
Explanation of Score courses
You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.
Fees: Adults £3, Juniors £2
Entry: On the day and via oentries.com
