Analysis...unless Pete S wins or comes close to winning at Tiverton, Elizabeth will still be in the lead after that event. That's because she will receive a score (915) for helping plan that event and drop the Cheddar score. The next event in Yeovil may be the last event of the series, depending on whether the Wellington W courses are planned in time.

Course Information

Two courses are offered, Long and Short, using exactly the same map and controls as each other.

Both are "Score" courses, that is each control earns points.

Short Score- the order of the controls you want to visit is entirely up to you.

Long Score- odds and evens format. That is, there are are two sets of controls, even numbered controls and odd numbered controls respectively, with one set tackled after the other. Once you switch to the second set, you cannot go back to the first set. The control circles on the map are coloured red on one set and blue on the other. The colours are meaningful only for the Long score.

The optimum routes are just under 8.5 km for the long and just under 7 km for the short.

Each course has a time limit of 50 minutes.

Points will be deducted at a rate of 30 points per minute for each minute or part minute you're late back.

Points values for controls are variable and denoted by the first number of the control, e.g. 62 scores 60 points.

For those who took part in our QOADs series, the Long score uses essentially the same scoring system.
