Glen Dye Level C 27/5/12

Results    Splits   Routegadget

BOF results loaded but for some reason not picking up non-comps. Will correct after Jubilee 5 and hols.

Another scorcher! 27 degrees this time – too hot for Rachels and a few others judging by the results. Was glad to reach the relative cool of the coast as it was a mere 17 degrees in Stoney.

Thanks to Helen for a cracking first crack at planning a “proper” event (I was enjoying it until my head boiled over at number 17!) and Evgueni for organising. Also to all helpers including Tessa Campbell of MAROC who wasn’t afraid to tell Mark Nixon to try not to win the Green in too fast a time as it would stymie son Iain’s chances of getting Gold Standard – again!
Bit of a conundrum this – Mark is using our events to train for Middle Distance and we’re happy to assist in any way we can but it obviously has unforeseen consequences. Answers on a postcard please (but not to me!!)

Ticks: I’m up to 13 free range wrigglers now – anyone want to declare their tally for the Golden Tweezers?

I received an email from Jan Strandskog wondering whether anyone actively tries to stop ticks from settling rather than just pick them off after the event and, if so, what do they use? The only product he knows of is one sold in Europe called Centaur but as it’s rather expensive to buy online (after carriage and tax) he’s looking for anyone going to Europe to buy him a bottle from a chemists to bring back to try out. Leave a comment if you do use anything or are willing to be a mule for Jan.

  1. That’s great Mark. Thanks on behalf of all our aspiring GRAMP and MAROC Juniors and a few Seniors too who are progressing up the colour chart.
    We left you as comp for the Green as we thought maybe you needed official results to prove something to someone – as if it needed proving!

  2. If the results haven’t yet been submitted to BOF then you can make me N/C for the green (as well as the Brown for being my 2nd run), I don’t need the ranking points or the green standard but other people do. For me it’s just training on an appropriate length course, so being N/C is fine.
