Templars Park – Wed 27th – Results

We can’t claim sole credit for the idea – I remember a similar version (without the Linear part) being put on by our Pres some years ago.

With any new format, it’s tricky to know how people will pick up the idea. Unfortunately some people thought that the Invisible Score controls could be picked up along the way, whilst doing the Linear part. As long as people completed the Linear part, no one is marked as DNF, but extra controls they got during the Linear Part were not counted. We enjoyed putting it on. I’m going to do a very normal Sprint Course for my Hillhead & Seaton event! Dave
There are some photos taken at Templars over on our Flickr site – last 5 come courtesy of David Esson’s phone and this is one of them. (My camera has a dial on the side for different modes and I nudged it onto something that made them all very dark. Managed to salvage enough to make it worth publishing but some of them have had a bit of artistic licence applied.)

Want to know where all 28 controls where?

Junior Attendance Awards were duly awarded although it was difficult to get some of the “Juniors” to stop toasting marshmallows long enough to accept their chocs and certs.

As we haven’t been counting points at all this year, we decided to give out prizes for various more lighthearted categories.

Most amazing thing found/heard/seen while out on your course:
Bil Caffyn found a legible map in the heather at Cheyne Hill for last year’s course
Most easily distracted: Helen Rowlands for playing on the aerial runway at Haddo
Earliest Bird Award: Phil Campbell – always first to arrive and run
Muddiest: Joel Gooch at Scolty
Most dedicated and determined (aka Value For Money): Sheena Farqhar
Best dressed picnic table: Lynsey and George Esson
Most improved: Paul Caffyn
Most SS 2014 events attended: David Esson

(If your name’s on the list and you weren’t there to collect then ask at the next event you go to and we’ll make arrangements to get it to you.)

Don’t forget that next Wednesday sees the start of the Autumn Urban Sprints
