STAG Dark Park 6 - Thurs 28th Jan 2016 - Linn Park - Event No.534

Thanks once again for supporting our events.

For some reason that I do not understand the Start & Finish boxes were 16 seconds out between them - they were both synchronised last night. I have adjusted the start times. The Who? in the results is Alec from USOC - the 2nd sheet of paper is somewhere in my car.

Thanks again to Gerry, Peter, Jim & Alastair for all their assistance.

Bonus points will be a challenge again to-night.

The Bonus Points system explained below is available at this event.

We were using the New Bonus Points System as explained below adapted for these 15 Control SCORE EVENTS.

If you have the skills & the physical fitness to visit all 15 controls within the time limit your night is not done as you are now eligible to go for Bonus Controls
1. You can only achieve Bonus Controls / Points after you have visited all 15 controls.
2. The 15th Control you visit cannot then be the 16th Control you visit. It could be your 17th Control etc.
3. You can only visit a Control twice & the second occasion must be having fulfilled point 1. above.
4. Bonus Points can be gained from visiting as many of the 15 Controls once again but you must i. punch the SI box hanging vertically from the T-Bar or, for padlocked sites the SI box identified by STAG Tape. ii.The SI unit must be punched within your given time zone.
5. The Bonus Points are of the same value as the original value e.g. Numbered 30s are worth 300pts ; 40s are worth 400pts ; 50s are worth 500pts.
6. The Bonus SI Unit at “Control 31” shall carry a sticker “Bonus 31”. Ignore the main SI Number on the Bonus Unit.
