Round 4 - Thalamorph Rally
Provisional Results are now up, which will become final on Friday 1st October at 21:00. (All is in place bar the map solutions for Route Cards 10-12 which will be added this evening).
As in previous rounds, if you have a query, please post it on the relevant thread on the forum.
For the Novices and Experts the times and scores show that I pitched
the level about right, perhaps a little easy on certain cards. However
it is safe to say that I provided the Masters with a challenge - perhaps
even more than I had intended.
I must thank all of you who took the time to add comments, both good and bad, with your answers. One or two even appreciated the more difficult cards!
One of the many things I learned in the process of setting and marking the event was how difficult it is to select route checks. Getting a good balance and covering as many 'loops' of the route is not always easy and in some cases I had no choice but to resort to letters. Hopefully this will be a thing of the past if the proposed trial of map marking software on the next event works.
So as I have not received any death threats (yet) from either competitors or Ray, I may have the dubious pleasure of organising another round in the future. Given how long it took to put the event together this time, I had better start on the next one now...
So provisional congratulations to the Class Winners, David Bell, David Smoley and Ian Doble.
