A folder has been temporarily created to contain – the TrailO results (already available under “Results”), a solutions map showing the answers with the locations of the 30 kites (and the 2 “Z” locations) and a Planner’s commentary attempting to explain what tests were being set and how they should have been solved. It can be found under “Resources>LVO Public Folders>Public>LVOTrailOC2018”. Happy to field any queries from disgruntled TrailOers!
First check of control cards shows the podium places to be taken by Lyle Fleming, Bill Simpson and Helen Pruzina with scores of 8, 7 and 6 respectively (out of a possible 9). I shall be at WEE tomorrow evening with a full results list showing each person’s decisions and will be happy to discuss how the control sites were setup.
The TrailO event on Sunday has been designated as the Club TrailO Championship for 2018. It will take the form of a PreO course of 9 controls with a mass start at 10:30 and a one hour time limit (so giving you plenty of time to get ready for Bill Simpson’s Score event) . The “training” beforehand will not involve any practical work but will be a walk-through the conventions of TrailO that make it different from FootO – the sort of things you need to be aware of in the following hour!
For anyone travelling to Tollymore from the north please be aware that the Dundrum to Maghera road (i.e. the route signposted to Tollymore from south of Dundrum) is closed due to roadworks and the diversion is along small country roads. Anyone with a bulky vehicle (e.g. campervan, MOO or, like me, a caravan) would be advised to travel via Castlewellan.
