Tech Event 2 - Stickle East

Part of the 2018 Tech Series

Event date: Wed 18 Apr

This event will be a 50th Birthday Special.

Something slightly different...  This year marks Iain's 50th birthday, and to mark the event, it is a ‘50 control special’.

Prizes and cakes will follow at the end...

The controls, including the finish, will be enabled in contactless mode so that those with SIAC dibbers should not need to physically punch the controls. However, note that it will be necessary to punch the start controls which will not be programmed in contactless mode.

Some notes on using SIACs are attached.

There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
