1st January 2013 New Year Score Event, Ord Hill Results

Planner's/Organiser's Report
Well despite some crazy wet weather over the festive period, Ord Hill New Year's Day Score Event enjoyed in the most part, dry and calm, although the ground underfoot was particularly damp! We had 50 competitors on the day either with or without their friendly shadows, it looks like some of the wee ones had particularly good runs, I'm amazed their shadows kept up! I'm a little disappointed that only 1 of the novelty controls got punched, although to be fair if peoples' tales of where they had been were accurate, then I believe that as many as 6 other runners would have punched 195 on the ruin, in a field, near a house. Unfortunately the friendly landowner thought his coos would not enjoy the extra company and decided to remove the control. Apologies to a number of you who encountered the gradually fading control circles/numbers on the map, which made finding them even harder than I had planned. I will be having a gentle word with the map printer about this. I trust you all enjoyed the refreshments that had been laid on in North Kessock Village Hall thanks to a good tip off.

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves on New Year's Day, whether it was competitive or just fresh air to start 2013 off with some gentle exercise, either way thank you to all who took part.

Thank you also to Dave for checking the H&S, Elaine (and Peter) for the village hall tip off and help on the day, Callum for helping plan and place controls, Mieke, Lynn and Ellie for managing the food distribution, my family for making the soup, and all those that helped with control collection.
