CompassSport Cup Heat – 12th March 2017

Firstly, thanks to everyone who has responded to my request for competitors for the CompassSport Cup match at Burwell and Haugham on Sunday, 12th March.

Proposed start times are now available.

I have included SI dibber numbers as recorded on DVO’s database – these may well be wrong especially if people have ‘upgraded’ recently. If the number is wrong, please let me know.

If I have missed you out – apologies.

If you would like to compete, it’s not too late. Please contact me by email by this Sunday, 19th Feb at the very latest.

I have opted to give people late start times because of the distance – and we are not exactly inundating the field with our numbers so we can pick and choose, apart from the veteran Short Green class where we are well represented.

If you would like a different Start Time, please let me know asap, but in any event by this Sunday. Ditto if you feel that I have selected the wrong class for you (although I am restricted by the CSC rules in most cases).

If you are embarrassed that DVO is so thinly represented in some classes, feel free to volunteer (see above) – you can run up but not down.

Your Club Needs You.

Club Captain

Level B event, Shining Cliff, Sunday 29th January

Results here. Control 155 on green, short green & very short green failed to respond for some competitors and was giving a false time for others.  It has now been assumed as a manual punch for everyone so the split to the next control is now the total time from the control before 155. Route gadget here.  [...]
