Massed Start Handicap Score Everyone starts at the same time – 12 noon – but the number of controls to be visited depends on your handicap. For RR club members, this is the Club Championships, but anyone else is welcome to take part. If you are not an RR member, please let the organiser know you are coming so there will be enough maps and we can allocate a handicap number. There will be 2 maps. There will be 8 controls on the first map. All competitors must visit all 8 controls in any order before returning to the Start to pick up the second map. Competitors need only visit enough controls on the second map to meet their total handicap requirement. For example if you have to collect 15 controls in total you will only need to visit 7 controls of your choice, in any order, on the second map. You will NOT need to punch the Start again when you pick up your second map. The winner will be the fastest to return to the finish having visited the correct number of controls on the second map.
Handicaps are shown further below
The version of the map we are using is at a scale of 1:4000, and was last updated in 2018.
Terrain: Gala Policies is popular with dog walkers and there is a good network of paths. Much of the area is runnable woodland, but in places, there are many thickets of rhododendron. There is a small unfenced pond, so younger juniors should be advised of this hazard.
Massed Start Score Course: Make sure you double check that you have visited the correct number of controls before heading to the finish!
Note about Orange course: this is an easy course, but some controls may be near, but not on, line features.
Please make sure you are registered and ready to walk to the start as a group at 11.45. The Massed Start event will start at 12.00, with the Orange course immediately after,
The finish will be quite near the Start. Please remember that even if you do not do the correct number of controls, you must punch the Finish unit.
Handicaps are based on an analysis of the BOF ranking lists plus somne adjustment for recent performance in local RR events.
