15/01/2020 Whitchurch Maprun

Thanks to Alan Stone for planning and organising tonights MapRun. The record breaking entry meant maps were a bit tight and we will have to up our print run for the next event which is Wed 19th Feb in Cardiff Bay.
I have added missing controls due to GPS issues for Mark Ponsford, Alice Bedwell, Lewis S, David Powlesland, Matt Whipple, Daniel Portlock, Andrew Mason and not least Marcus Pinker whose result wouldn’t upload but whose track gave him a winning score of 550.

Thanks to all who turned up and ran despite the awful weather. Thanks to Clare for planning and Mark and Caroline for their help on the day. Initial results here. There will be a few additions to the results when the tracks are looked at.

Event Organisers Wanted (Updated Jan 2020)

SWOC is planning to put on monthly events in 2020 as well as a Christmas score on the 27th December. We are looking for people to plan / organise these events. The SWOC League Events will consist of 4 courses Blue, Green, Orange and Yellow with the capability of creating a Short Green course where possible.  Support will be given to anyone inexperienced.

If you can help please let me know with your preferred option. At present there may be some flexibility with regard to dates and venues but I will be contacting landowners for permissions shortly.

The details of the events still requiring volunteers are as follows.
