This novelty event was not quite a standard score course. With score and home controls, and the rule of visiting two scores then a home, repeating throughout, several got themselves in a tangle. For juniors, any out of sequence controls were simply removed from their score; for seniors, their scoring ended when they punched out of sequence.
Directions / Parking
There is a small carpark at the wood which we need to leave available to the public. Event parking is at the T-junction and barns of Thorne Manor a hundred yards away. Please park tightly to get as many in as possible. - TBC
This will be a 30 minute score course with a twist. There are two types of controls - score controls and home controls. You can only punch two score controls in a row before having to punch a home control (and you can't punch a home control until you've punched two score controls). Repeat punches of the same home control are allowed but repeats of a score control will not count towards your score.
The score controls will be scored based on their decade, just like in our Street Series. There is a 10 point penalty per minute over the time limit. There are no bonuses for being under the time limit. Rankings between those with the same points score will be decided on time.
Score controls are 110 upwards and home controls are 101-106. On the map, score controls are in the usual purple and home controls are in red. On the ground, home controls will have a Christmassy theme. All home controls are marked on the Junior map. Only a selection are marked on the Senior map, but if you find another one you can use it (they are still on the Senior CDs so at least one can be worked out from that).
We will be using SI punching.
