Comments from Organiser Ian Sayer
Many thanks to all who came to the Boscombe Chine Night Event. I hope you enjoyed it despite some last minute works making it difficult. Control 49 could not be used as they piled pipes up where it should have gone in the hour or so before I put the controls out. Also the road which was impassable for pedestrians had been passable the day before. So apologies for those caught out.
Interesting to see the varied routes, I had thought that the best place to transition from odds to evens or vice versa was at controls 50/51 but the winners thought otherwise, and who can say they were wrong.
A perfect event. Certainly from the League Compilers perspective. The winner scoring 500 points which means he didn’t have to do any complicated arithmetic to scale everything back to 500! This was achieved by Ian not putting out one control (again!). This time deliberately, due to pipe works that day that precluded anyone getting near where he had planned to put it – and he did tell everyone about it! The excellence of the planning was shown by the myriad of different routes taken and the debate back in the pub as to where was the best place to change from odds to evens (or vice versa). Ian felt it was around 46/47, Andy and Gavin thought 50/51. Checking it on Google pedometer both are just over 11k with less than 25 mtrs in it either way.
