Here are the results for the Tyrebagger event held in rather damp conditions (to say the least):
Congratulations to winners Luke Charles and Hannah Smith (tied on time on the White course), to Alex Maclachlan (SS), Peter Collins (JS solo) and Eilidh and Kirsty Campbell (JS pair).
Here are the chosen routes of the competitors who visited all their Score controls:
Here are possible optimal routes from the Planner:
Key decision points were:
Junior Score: After S-105-224, it was tempting to go north to 230 and 103. However this left the problem of control 139. It’s best to go to 139 straight away after 224 (easy valley run).
Senior Score: How best to fit 160 into the circuit? I think it’s best to go 105-160-225 (or reverse). It’s a very steep climb up from 223 or 138. And how best to cover the eastern group of six? Planner suggests130-222-150-131-140-227 (or reverse) could be quickest, or alternatively 130-131-140-227-150-222.
Special thanks to helpers (who got quite wet!) :- Paul D., Anne H. and Jayne, and control collectors David E. and Adrian. And thanks also to Paul and Evgueni for shortening their runs slightly, so that we could start collecting controls a wee bit earlier than planned, due to the heavy rain.
