Domination Score Results – Hednesford Camp

Thanks to Andy who planned tonight’s score event on Hednesford Camp.  Six people over-ran the 45 minute limit, and so lost some of their hard-earned points!  Thanks also to all those who helped get the controls in – much appreciated.  Next week is another score event on Gentleshaw, parking on the grass next to the Windmill Inn.

Peel Pursuit Race & Club BBQ

Tues 26th June is the Peel Pursuit handicap run and club BBQ.

The run is a straight run (no navigation needed), with the slowest off first and the fastest last, so that in theory, everyone finishes at the same time.  The grid reference for the start is SJ975194.  The Pursuit route for adults will NOT be taped this year and people are encouraged to recce the route in advance.  Maps of the course will be available for use on the night and a PDF of the route is attached to this p.  The senior 4 km course is the same as last year.  The junior course will be taped.

The start time will be 7 pm plus handicap times.  Let the organiser know if you plan to run so he can work out the handicap times or any juniors want to run a short course.

The barbecue (BYO) follows at Jon’s house – bring your food / drink and deckchair (and probably a brolly as it usually rains!!).
More details have been e-mailed to all members.

Chasers at the Showground Relays

Chasers were represented at the 2nd Showground Relays last night by just the one team this year.  The 4 x 2-mile relay used to be the Shugborough Relays until it’s move last year.  Chasers have had teams entered in every race since it started in 1988, with Andy keeping his record on doing them all – now reaching the 30-year marker.  This year’s team of Dan, Andy, Dave and John were 9th in the Male Super-Vet Team, just 70 seconds down on 6th place.

Controllers comments:
Promising sunshine at 6.30 a.m when three of us set off to put out some 40 controls. All placed and woken up by 9.30 a.m.
Using the South east Start meant courses plunged into the complex wooded area straight away. Careful navigation and good attack points were needed here and longer courses came back to it later just to further test your navigation.
Congratulations to Neil and Mary for stepping up to be planners.
Thanks to those who mentioned that they had found possible extra features. We made a note of them to pass on to the mappers. On an area as complex as this, it’s a seemingly endless task.
Please consider stepping up yourself to these vital jobs. Us M75 Controllers find it very lively, even with a mountain bike, to race round all controls before 10 a.m.  This would be an even bigger task at dark winter events.
West Midlands is fortunate to put on courses for Planners, Controllers, and Organisers- look out for the next ones.
Mike Callow, Wrekin Orienteers
