DNC, Events/Results

DNC Balmedie – 23/11/16 – Results

Starry, starry night!  Perfect for star-gazing and not so bad for orinteering, either!  Although cold (+1 deg) there was almost no wind, and conditions were excellent for fast running.  The ground frost actually hardened up the open sandy areas, and made them faster than ever before.

The EMIT equipment worked well despite the cold.  All the brikkes functioned perfectly.  I think that doing the brikke check at registration is something we should always do.  The control units worked fine, although two units (103, and 106) gave numerous low battery warnings – “99 codes”.  However, with one exception, they still registered punches on the brikkes of everyone who visited them.  The exception affected Matthew Gooch, who logged a “99 code” from control 106, but no punch registered there.  As the 99 code is clear evidence that he visited the control, we have happily reinstated Matthew.  Controls 103 and 106 are now going to be retired from active duty (after over 10 years service).

There was very close competition at the top of both courses, though you’ll see from the splits that even the speed merchants still had far from perfect runs and some lost considerable time at certain controls.  Here are the links to:
