Type of terrain: Forest


Event Report

Thank you for coming to the BASOC Festive Fun event, we hope you enjoyed your run around the woods at Nethy and a social chat afterwards.

Paul Frost not only got the results and RouteGadget up at the venue, he was also out north of the river at 9am placing units on the stakes, thank you Paul.
Johannes Petersen collected all the controls back in, yes he did volunteer for this as he wanted a run round, thank you Johannes (and also thanks to Jane & Anna who waited around for him to do this).

The 'results police' have checked the control sequence etc. and there are some adjustments made. These are shown in the 'Manual Adj' column.

  • was a '130' punched immediately after a '120' ? - Yes, everyone complied with this rule.
  • did every competitor visit 114 to 119 inclusive? No, quite a few did not - but they did go to some of the '120's'. 10 points have been deducted for every one of the 114 to 119 controls you did not visit.

The manual adjustments have been removed from the total points column and then the lateness penalties are applied to that.

Please do put up your RouteGadget, I am always interested in finding out where people went.

Event Report

Thank you for your support at the event this evening, I really appreciated the positive reaction from you all when I asked for help with things. Everyone did what they could - some above and beyond with the collection of the crossing point crates (I know, they were a pain to carry out there!). There was a positive vibe around which was due to the food village & computing being in a small sheltered area and this encouraged competitors to stay around discussing their course (and where they would have won if they had not done X, Y Z).

Results were posted to the website before many had left the car parking area, RouteGadget & Winsplits are also up now, many thanks to Paul.
The equipment is back in the store, except for the NNC stuff which is drying out on the floor, with the help of the underfloor heating!

James did all the liaison with the farmer and this has opened up a cracking wee area for training - I have some unused maps if anyone would like to go round in daylight - and meet the cattle at the same time.

I am really looking forward to competing in the NNC rounds 2 to 6!

Please go to RouteGadget and add the routes you took to controls and look at at what others did. You can upload a GPS track or draw it yourself. It's really easy to do and a great opportunity to learn. Videos on how to draw a route and uloading a GPS track
