Caldicot Castle Summer Event 4 – Results
Thank you for everyone for coming. I hope the beginners enjoyed themselves and the advanced had a positive experience with the Norwegian exercise. As a memory exercise it is meant to make you pick your attack points more carefully. Hopefully good practise for the real thing.
Apologies for some of the SI dibber units going missing, despite a few red herrings, all the maps managed to stay out for the duration of the course. Thanks to Bob and George finding some of the “slung away” SI units. From a potential of losing 5 in the end we only lost 1. Also a big O sign went missing too… Go figure!
If anyone lost a Doberman pincher, a man came to me after the event and said he found one….

27/12/2011 Pontcanna Xmas Score.
Thank you all for coming; with a good turn out it makes the time and effort worth while.
I had 31 entries by noon on Monday so had 50 maps printed thinking 66% extra would suffice; late that evening another 11 entries arrived. Fortunately for unannounced on-the-day entrants Nick had got more maps printed that morning, without which we would not have had enough maps for you all.
The format, which I borrowed from Duncan Innes, allowed me to put on a course in the easy terrain which kept the fit runners occupied for the hour, a little more in some cases.
Two competitors, Mark Saunders and Paul Gebbett managed to visit all controls and pick up the maximum number of bonus points, but paid a time penalty. They were beaten into 4th and 5th places by Nick, Clem and Richard who decided to forgo a few points to avoid (or minimise) their time penalty.
Apologies for the mal-functioning control M1 (unit number 172); I can assure you it gave me more problems than it gave you. I think I have credited all those who did visit the unit but got response, see Updated Control Visited spreadsheet.
I trust the absence of stakes/flags didn’t cause any problems – it saved me carrying around a lot of extra equipment and meant the units were less prone to any potential vandalism.
Thanks to Nick for handling registration and Clem for collecting in many controls.
