Autumn Urban Sprint Series, Events/Results

Aberdeen Uni Autumn Urban Sprint 1/10/14 Results

Wow! AUOC are really going from strength to strength with 11 runners and Janne busy coaching and encouraging after putting out controls as tonight’s planner. A great wee course making good use of the complex alleyways and extra vertical dimension offered by Aberdeen Uni which foxed many scouting round at the bottom of steps instead of looking up!

Unfortunately, somebody took a shine to one of the controls and early runner Carolyn McLeod got waylaid searching in bushes for it before coming back to report it. Fortunately we managed to replace it in time so that only Iain McLeod was similarly affected. Although technically missing a punch, I’ve reinstated their results (which are eerily exactly the same to the second). If anyone in AUOC hears anything on the grapevine about where our control might have got to please ask for it back. Ta.

Rob Hickling suffered a brikke failure and doesn’t appear to have self-timed so at present isn’t included in the finishers but if he has a time I’m sure he’ll let me know.

Overall points 2014 (best 3 of 5 to count)
Overall points 2014 by category

Due to tonight’s monster turnout, some folk sadly don’t get any points as they go 30, 27, 24, 21, 20….
I can’t really change the points system for tonight’s event as that wouldn’t be fair on everyone but I have made a note to start much higher next year.

Congratulations to the category winners:
WU16  Naomi Lang  MU16  Lachlan Kirk
WJ  Jennifer Ricketts MAROC   MJ  Jack Gomersall and Angel Iliev AUOC
WS  Shona Thompson and Hazel Wright MAROC  MS Mark Stockton
WV  Rachel Scott   MV  Pete Lawrence (fix! fix! I hear you cry!)
WSV  Fiona, June, Fiona  MSV Stefan Stasiuk (unless Rob claims a better enough time?)
WUV Sheena Farquhar
MUV  George Esson (to show that organising pays dividends – hint, hint for 2015)
Bike  David Esson
Best Newcomers (to the O scene not just Aberdeen) Melanie Costes AUOC and Jeremy Huthwaite

Prizes will be presented at the AGM or got to you somehow, somewhen.
