Thanks to Robin Strain for helping sort the issues explained below and to Gerry and Ross in particular for their assistance this evening.

For some reason the explanations related to the results were not saved so here we go again for a 4th attempt :)

Start Box issue - Due to a voltage value way below the acceptable value of 3.15V (it was 2.97V) this was dispatched for replacement battery. Unit 79 was reprogrammed as a Start but it looks like I forgot to click 'Apply' to confirm the change.

Although unknown to yourselves. Control 37 was actually programmed as Control 39 and initially the SI Timing programme was disqualifying everyone.

It is imperative that when entering that you enter your SI Number accurately to help speed up results.

Dark Park 1 is next Wednesday @ Glasgow Green. Please register as early as possible as I shall have to send off the order for maps on Friday morning.
