hCOW Updated with Crossmurrin Results

You can access the tables from the “STANDINGS” section of the website, then go to “hCOW>hCOW2024”. The event results reveal a large fluctuation in handicaps (variance), both up and down – looks like some folk went well and others had problems. The hCOW Table (that’s points for regularity) won’t start showiing the true picture until after Moydamlaght, when those with 5 results (the required number) will be at the head of the list. At the moment, amongst those with three scores to date, Ric Gamble has a substantial lead over Moire O’Sullivan – does a stint as club Chairman make Read More …

The previous Wednesday, first time planner Henry Montgomery also had about 60 of us darting about Ormeau. Great courses to enjoy on another wonderful evening.

hCALF update with UUJ performances

The usual tables are available at “STANDINGS>hCALF2024”. The hCOW table shows the points (place points so the lower the better) for being closest to your handicap (once the allowance for the terrain speed has been factored in), the Handicap table shows your history of handicap variation and the Regatta table shows your points (again place points) for beating your handicap. This week saw almost a doubling of participants and congratulations to Sharon Dickenson – it’s not often a handicap can be improved by more than a minute!. The UUJ terrain – urban – raises the issue of measuring course length. Read More …
