STAG Dark Park 7 - Thurs 4th Feb 2016 - Alexandra Park - Event No.536

So Event 7 has now come & gone with the most notable happenings being after the event itself - on bringing in the Controls on 1 T-Bar the screws had came loose & the plate & SI box had fallen off - thankfully it was found .
Not only did one of our intrepid students manage to leave his phone in my car but also his wallet - all returned.

Thanks to Joe from Nottingham for popping along.

I have adjusted the finishing time by 25 seconds for everyone. I will need to further investigate what is going on with this SI issue.

Thanks again for your support & to Gerry, Jim, Peter & John for helping bring in the controls.

Results below make it an interesting finish in the remaining 3 events.

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