Thanks to all who braved the wintery conditions on Saturday to go out on a lamppost safari (or marker post safari for the junior course).
The results do depend somewhat on luck, as I did not reveal which of the original control sites had the maps showing the locations of the extra controls. In retrospect I should probably have added that information.
The results are are as follows:
Junior 30 minute score
Daniel Hague 28:50 210 points (including extras), no penalty Score 210
Caitlin Dunning 28:16 100 points, no penalty Score 100
Senior 45 minute score
Stephen Borrill 42:44 290 points (including extras) no penalty Score 290
Bruce Marshall 42:32 180 points (including extras) no penalty Score 180
Sean Blanchflower 33:56 160 points no penalty Score 160
Sue Woods 44:49 150 points (including extras) no penalty Score 150
The awards were given by Paul Beckett, Chair of EAOA, after the completion of tha CompassSport Qualifier match. A rain shower just before the presentation explains the profusion of waterproofs amongst spectators and recipients.
WAOC winners on hand to receive their awards included Hebe Darwin, Janet Cronk, Hazel Bickle, Mike and Seonaid Dudley, and Peter Woods.
A farewell was made to Ben Windsor at the clubnight on 7th March. Chris Morley, who was WAOC Chairman when we first met Ben about 8 years ago, summarised the excellent work he has done for the club and presented Ben with a mug which featured Ben's maps.
