West End StreetO 10 November 2015
Organised by Elaine Battson
Just over 100 people participated in the West End Street O event, with Jo Hurley (SLOW) scoring highest on the night. The first outright win for a female I believe, so congratulations Jo.
There were also a number of people new to orienteering or Street O, which was good to see. I hope you enjoyed it and will come back for some of the other races in the series.
There was one glitch on the night. When I planned, and then when the control was rechecked, number 22 was definitely illuminated bright pink. On the night it clearly had a change of heart..,, a few times …. as we had answers of yellow, green, purple and so on. In the end the decision to accept any colour as correct was taken. Apologies for any confusion.
A big thank you to everyone who helped in the night, and also to the pub who were kind enough to host.
Maps left in the night will be available at the next event. Any queries regarding results, please let me know Elaine
A headtorch was found in the pub and will be taken to the next event.
