Countesswells Score event results – 7th Dec 2014

Countesswells woods was looking pretty as a picture in the winter sunshine, with a dusting of snow which fell in the small hours.  It was a bit muddy underfoot on some of the paths, but otherwise faster running than in the summer when the bracken is up.  Several of you sped round the controls at low mins/km.

Here is the Score Course map.

Here are maps showing the routes taken by the top three in each of the score categories:

65 mins class:
Route Mark Stockton   Route Alex MacLachlan   Route Sam Gomersall

35 mins class:
Route Naomi Lang   Route John Lang   Route Josie Gomersall

Thanks to Dave Kirk for planning and organising the event.  Also appreciation for Ian Searle for manning the computer, latterly with frozen fingers and toes.   We hope you noticed the new score splits printouts – we were using brand new timing and points calculation software for the first time.  This seemed to go okay, and you’ll see it in action twice more at score events in January.

  1. Thanks Dave for a great course and Ian for manning the computer….can anyone explain the mysterious behaviour of control 250? Lots of people did this one last and it seems to show at later time of arrival at this control than their time of arrival the finish…still trying to working how I could make this work to my advantage on a normal course…

    • Hi — Glad you enjoyed it. The “control 250” that appears on your splits is the time that you downloaded. The orange unit that we use for download, which looks like a control, is actually very similar to a control, with a wire coming out of it, and has code number 250. It’s rather boringly called a “250 Reader”.

      It doesn’t affect the points calculation, but I haven’t found a way to remove the 250 unit time from the Score splits yet. However it can be handy if you forget to punch at the finish, as we can use it as a proxy for your finish time, and maybe reinstate you. Rob
