Results from Bowmont 7/12/19

The results from today’s event at Bowmont are HERE

Thank you to all those who came along to Bowmont today. It was a lovely day to be out and I certainly enjoyed my trip around the forest placing the controls, beginning not long after sunrise. Judging from the comments at the finish I think all enjoyed their runs around the muddy grid of paths. It was great to see a few new faces and also newcomers returning for a second outing.

I also enjoyed comparing the variations in routes on the Score. The 30 minute time limit meant there wasn’t much time for dithering and I planned the Score so that it would be difficult to get around all of the controls within the time allowed. Well done to John for being the most efficient in hoovering up the highest score within the time allowance. James actually collected the most points but his ambitions were greater than his time keeping…..

As ever, organising the event was a Reivers team effort. Thanks again to Lindsey for setting up and running registration / download and to Pauline, Robin, John, Keith, Eb and James for collecting in controls and dismantling the start /finish. And all just in time to get to the Club Christmas Lunch which was excellent.


p.s. thanks too to Robin for organising the club’s 50th birthday cake.
