Report

A big turnout sold out all of the maps and I had to ask people to share so everyone could get a run – a big thanks to those who did. Thanks also to Hyde Park Harriers for coming and making up the extra numbers. We'll make sure we print more next time!

WCOC, LOC and MDOC will provide our competition. Club captain Steve Webb will post an entry invite and spreadsheet shortly.

Winter Night Score League Commences

Wednesday evening saw the first of the eight Winter Night Score League races held around the Streets of Farsley, Rodley and Stanningley. Andy Hobson planned an intriguing course with 30 controls available 25 worth 10 points but with 5 controls worth 30 and a bonus 30 points if you picked up all 5 of those controls. The bait was taken by a lot of the competitors with 23 out of 41 entries late back incurring time penalties - many trying to get that last 30 pointer and bonus. The event is posted on Routegadget

So if you were there why not draw your route and if you weren't at the event have a look and see how you would have picked up the bonus controls 41-45.

If you haven't used Routegadget before there is a video of how to draw your route under useful links on the home page.

Next weeks event is at Horsforth Hall Park.
