STAG Dark Park 9 - Thurs 18th Feb 2016 - Pollok CP - Event No.538

Yes a few tales of woe this evening to be had. Results provide interesting reading.

Craig scores a mega negative score as he, Callum & Arnis all lose the controls punched once their 25 minute deadline expires.

John’s tactics back fire as he drops to last place in 30 Men Class at DP9..

Jim bounces back with a win but its too late.

My Thanks to Gerry, Peter, Christine, Alastair & Kenny for their help this evening.

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.
