Type of event: National
Type of terrain: Woodland
Special thanks to the runners who either gave up their run or lost a lot of time when they stopped to help Ben who broke his arm, hopefully we'll see him back at our events soon.
However, at today’s event the thoughtless action of one person really spoilt another person’s run. Someone on the Very Short Green course discarded their control description sheet from yesterday’s event adjacent to the description sheets for today’s event. Unfortunately, that discarded sheet was picked up by one of today’s competitors, who believed it to be today’s sheet.
Therefore, next time, if you find that your description holder contains a sheet from a previous event, please don’t just discard it, but instead put the new sheet on top of the old sheet.
Pre Event Info
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.
