Event Report

Please check your results carefully for spelling/club/age group/correct timing and score, and let us know asap of any errors. If your score is not what you were expecting, and you don't feature in the wrong-answers list, one of us has made a mistake.

Don't forget that if you can't make a particular event, you can get the map and questions from Grahame , and run by yourself before or after the day, and have your score included.

Wrong answers and Rulings

(correct answer in brackets)

#11 (0) Paul Clifford 4

#13 (5) Doug Edwards and Lucy 4

#20 (2) Simon Rushton and Maria 6

#23 (2) Alan Barker 1

#30 (0) Simon Rushton and Maria 1

#43 (5) Helen Armitage and John Morris 41

#61 (7) Alan Barker, Russell Price 9

#63 (1) Simon Rushton and Maria 2

#69 (8) Steve Fairclough and Andrew Mainwaring 9

The wrong answers have been investigated and all stand as wrong except for #48, where a site visit showed that approached from the West it looked like it could have been a 10 but from the East it was clearly 1C.

So the six "10"s have been allowed and points totals adjusted accordingly.

Additional information from the organiser

Event 6 is to be held in Sale’s far West.

There’s a range of night street orienteering terrain to enjoy, with some tricky bits and some runnable roads (trust me) for those of you who like to stretch their legs.

The map covers a wide area so you will able to major on tricky or stretchy or both. Come along. Challenge yourself, or stay in your comfort zone. The choice is yours. 

The pub is the Samuel Brooks on Manor Road, M33 4WD. The landlord and staff are very welcoming, and there’s a wide range of food and drink. Not a huge car park, but street parking won’t be a problem.
