Rob provided us with some devilish “Precision-Xmas” courses, with a strong “Pre-O” or “Trail-O” element (but not on any trails…). Six of the controls on the long course were clusters of controls, and you had to pick the one that you thought was in the exact centre of the circle and fitted the control description most precisely.
A time penalty of 2 minutes was given for each incorrect punch at a clusters.
Control no 6 was vandalised 😦 so everyone’s splits from 5-6-7 have been deleted from the times. That’s why you’re all faster than you thought.
Here are finalised results. Well done to class winners Tim (and happy birthday on your 21st!), Ailsa and Stuart.
Very well done to everyone for making an excellent try at picking the correct flags. Overall the average success percentage was 57.6%, but top marks to Rachel for being 100% correct.
Special thanks to those who helped collect controls: Ian, Gareth, Helen R, Helen A and Stuart.
Here are some notes on the special control clusters, and enlargements of the control sites showing the locations of all the controls in the cluster:
