GAC 2016 Final Results

OK it’s official Shearwater have won the much coveted (?) GAC 2016 Bonsai Trophy after a great turnout at Balmedie this week and a misspunch on the Maersk team…

GAC 2016 Final Results

Sums have all been checked … a quick reminder of the scoring:
Top 3 ladies’ and top 3 men’s scores make up the score for the night.  The series result is based on the team’s best 4 events. Individual totals are also based on your best 4 scores. Simple…

Shearwater turned out en masse… even managing a new entry in the last week! Genesis dropped by the wayside much like the poor neglected Bonsai… we hope the newly purchased replacement (thanks Maersk!) will not suffer the same fate in its new home at Shell.

Well done to all, everyone had some great runs and some not so great runs over the weeks from the smooth and sunny parklands of Hazlehead to the torrential rain and gorse of Tyrebagger (for the few that turned up). The snail trophy was hotly contested but after careful consideration had to go to John Durkin and Alan Standerwick of Shearwater for taking 32 minutes to reach Control no 1 at Crathes (which Gareth found in a mere 58 secs and in fact completed the whole course in 28 mins). Katrine of Genesis won a book on weather for turning up nearly every week, and spending an hour and a half thrashing through head high bracken at Tyrebagger in the pouring rain (despite assurances that the rain was due to stop at 6pm). Prickly cactuses for first man Gareth and first lady Victoria (both of Maersk) and cactuses for best newcomers Jamie and Claire (although as this is now her third year of GAC she may no longer be entitled to it next year).

The Summer Series continues so if you’re hooked, please come along (you could even try a Long Tech and get really lost!).
