SOS Summer League Event 4
Wivenhoe Woods, Wivenhoe, Colchester
Wednesday 6th July 2016
Thank you to everyone that came along to Wivenhoe Woods. For a small area the woods are quite complex which can pose some challenges as many of you found out. Ferry Meadows and the urban area give variation. The use of the double-sided map made planning the long course a lot easier. The Woods are long and thin which makes it difficult to prevent lines crossing making the course difficult to read. A couple of people missed the short second loop visiting the finish after control 13.
Thank you to Colin for his advise on courses and for helping hang and collect controls; to those who helped collect controls in; to Kevin for printing the maps and map corrections although I did wonder why I bothered as a number of you tried the straight-line between controls 4 & 5 despite the dark green and the absence of a path on the map. Yes, there used to be a route through but it is horrible now!
Several people managed to punch the wrong Control 7. I will make a bit of a confession. When I was hanging controls, I couldn't find 30 so I took 54 to hang instead. I was struggling to read the map in the woods and actually hung it on the fence to the west of the correct control site. Colin then found 30 in the car so went to replace the control. He couldn't find my control but hung 30 in the correct place by the boulder on the stream. Check your control code!
Congratulations to Clive Wilkinson who was fastest on the long course and to Nick Pugh who just sneaked ahead of Clive on handicap. The system used for calculating the points is the same as for the main Stragglers League and can be found on the website at http://www.stragglers.info/league/#Rules.
