Event Report

Wow - what a turn out for the last BASOC event of 2013! Almost 60 people came along for some fun hunting depressions in an area where there certainly are many depressions of all sorts of shapes and sizes. BASOC have 40 SI units so there had to be 40 depressions (I looked at knolls but there were over 50 of them). I counted 39 I could get a 6mm control circle around so used one of the small U depressions to make up 40 (and this also added to the challenge). I could have probably used one of the larger depressions as there is some debate as to whether or not one in particular should have been included. Ah well, it was only a fun event!

The cattle stayed away from the event area - an hour after we finished they had ‘swum’ through the tunnel and were back grazing there. No doubt the deer wondered what was going on and then the area went really quiet again and they probably thought they had been hallucinating on those magic mushrooms again. The sheep not think.

Now to say ‘Thank you’ to people

• First of all to Paul Frost who sorted out the computing side and the results. I gave him a bit of a nightmare with the limited capacity of some cards but he has come up trumps again.

• Hilary Quick for responding to my phone call on Monday ‘Can you please print some more maps?’ and we used them all.

• Marion Maccormick for sorting out the access and the farmer for the field parking (well, he was not actually asked for this but we had to use the field!).

• The control collectors (JOK group) and BASOC folks for helping to sort the kit out at the end.

• All who brought along something for the ‘spot prizes’; some very appropriate things were matched up with people!

• Everyone who came along and smiled afterwards! Thank you for your patience with registration and download.

• Terry O’Brien and STAG as I pinched the idea from the Faskally Knoll bagging and Allean Boulder bonanza.

A copy of the All Controls map is below, so you can see what you may have missed.

The next BASOC event is at Revack on Sunday 12th January 2014; if you are thinking of coming it would really help if you ‘booked a map’ via Oentries.

Thank you all and see you in sunlit forests in 2014, Lynne Walker
