Thanks to everyone who turned out to help disinfect Dunnottar Woods – due to your heroic efforts the woods are now officially clear of Mank-O and the good citizens of Stoney can walk their dogs safely again. Thanks to Pete and Ian S for control wrangling for me, Ali and Kate for hosting the social afterwards and not least Judith Anderson for some amazingly evil looking spore cakes (seems Mank-O actually tastes quite good as they were ‘cleared’ very fast.)
Good to see our local guest runners having such a blast on the Yellow that they wanted a bash at the ‘big’ course too and we ended up with a sort of impromptu Score course going on as well. (Psst! There’s another Score course coming up at Scolty on Sunday Jan 18th, more details on the website soon.)
Congratulations to Mark and Ali for battling it out to get maximum tallies on the Spore course. They both took different approaches so for interest I’ve mocked up their ‘routes’ and also added my best shot (admittedly planned from my armchair although I did test run it) which was different again.
Several folk seemed to lose the power of mental arithmetic halfway through and incurred penalties for going over the 125 spore limit for their second or third batch of locations but then got back into the groove again to finish. Or maybe their oxygen starved brains flipped the even = 25 / odd = 50 for a while and then flipped back as they started to recover?
I’m sure there’s a psychologist out there who would have a field day with all that data once they’d finished analysing my imagination.
