Crathes – Level C Event – Sun 24 June 2018 Results

Final results and splits
Routegadget – this is where you can see where everyone else went and where the big mistakes were made – if you haven’t played with RG before then there are guides and videos found here

Results with BOF ranking points (will be calculated overnight Tues and incorporated into overall rankings Thursday)

Many thanks to Crathes Castle and Estate for permission and Neil McLean for making the long trip down several times to plan. David Esson provided computing backup to Neil and also covered entries/timing on the day (apologies for not having a results display during the day itself) and Jon Musgrave was our Controller.

Thanks also to the Farquharson Three, Lindsey and George Esson, Jonathan Smith, Jeremy Huthwaite, Lesley and Sam Gomersall, Griffins en masse, Helen Anderson, Pete Lawrence and Bob Daly for assisting with set up, registration, starts, road crossing, control collecting, looking for late finishers and dismantling which made my job very easy and pleasant today with plenty of time to sup coffee and catch up with some old faces. (Also Dennis McDonald, Paul Puley and Ros Evans who also volunteered but weren’t required in the end.)

Jonathan also spotted and reported some smouldering vegetation near one of the controls at the western end and guided the Crathes Rangers to the exact spot so they could extinguish it before it developed too far.

PS WHAT3WORDS
Some of you may have noticed on the details that as well as grid ref, postcode and map links I’ve been having a bit of fun with WHAT3WORDS as well. This uses 3 words separated by fullstops to identify a location down to a 3m x 3m square when you plug that combination into their website to search.
This is not only very accurate but also quite fun as the three words often chime spookily close with the characteristics of either the location or organiser of events. For example, see where drops.download.parkland gets you.
Anyway my playing around has been noticed – Gramp gets a mention on the WHAT3WORDS website as an example of organisations using it! Woohoo! Fame at last!
