Evening Event 1 at Concord Park
Tue 7th Jun 2011
(Other = Winsplits)
Apologies for control 217 (2 on medium and 16 on long) being missing for a short period of time, fortunately the SI box and stake were found in the undergrowth near the control site and replaced. Anyone who missed this control has been reinstated. Also apologies for the nasty steep downhill route to control 1 on the medium course, I think everyone managed to scramble (or slide) down to the control but with hindsight the first 3 controls on this course should have been in reverse order to avoid this. KR
217 was control 2 on the Medium; nearly everybody arrived there while it was missing, so I have deleted it from the course in the results software. This means all subsequent splits are labeled one control out (control 3 is labelled 2 etc). It was control 16 on the long and it was already back, but without its kite, when I arrived as first starter. The only person who didn't find it was givien a "manual punch". PG.
