Summer Series 14/8/19 Mulloch

I haven’t distinguished between map memory and the regular course, partly because I think there was some peeking going on, partly because a few people seem to know the area very well*. That said, my hat goes off to the handful of brave souls who went out there without a map for backup! 

Apologies to Paul Duley, whose brikke malfunctioned, and thanks to David Esson, who is valiantly trying to interrogate it. Many thanks to everyone who helped and/or collected in controls including: Hugh Nicholson, Adrian Will, Bob Daley, Dennis MacDonald, and Adrian Northcott.                        Ros

*Knowing the area didn’t help much as I got blase and accidentally started looking at the Short Tech map memory slices half way round the Long and then just made it up to finish thinking I knew what I was looking for but it’s all changed** so dramatically in the last 2 years it took me ages to convince myself I was on the so-called ‘ride’ leading to the last control.

**Definitely time for an update which is the perfect timing for me to mention our plans to get some extra hands on board to help Stuart Anderson break the back of the backlog of tweaks to be made to our maps. Anyone out there interested in a training session on how to operate Ocad or equivalent and get some tips on what to include and what to leave out etc?  Let myself or David Esson know and we’ll try to arrange something to suit a bit later in the year.    Rachel
