Hogmany Hangover Handicap 2/1/2020 @ Hazlehead Park

Great to see so many enthusiastic juniors charging round the Yellow (with more than a touch of sibling rivalry going on) and some old regulars coming out of the woodwork for some fresh air and a different challenge on the Score. First time I’ve been thanked for making someone’s brain ache – because “it took my mind off my other injuries”.

Results (as normal score)
Splits

Starter for 10 overall scores
I’ve adjusted a few people’s control/points tally following a couple of controls not registering but eye-witnessed or similar proof and/or my mental arithmetic going a bit wrong in the heat of the moment at download.

Well, those who read the Starter for 10 rules and inwardly digested certainly reaped the rewards, most notably Neil McLean who leapt up 10 places after calmly picking off 11 consecutive pairs. Also interesting how the “perfect” target score (which was actually wrong!) did seem to stick in people’s minds.

Congratulations to Duncan Grassie for seeing through my ploys and whizzing round all 25 controls well within time to win.

Thanks to Pete for helping set up (hence NC and a self-confessed DSQ in results), David for wrangling the Score software, George and Lindsey for the warm welcome/soup/fire after and Pete, Neil and David for helping collect controls.

  1. Rachel,
    Thank you again for organising! And to George and Lindsey for opening their home, plus the fabulous soups within.
