(2/4) Midweek Score, Witton Pk (N), Jun 14 2017
Date of event: Wed 14th Jun 17
Type of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Blackburn
This was the second event in our June Score Series. Witton Park is large (A4, 1:10000) so we reverted to a standard score format (any control, any order) with 60 minutes time limit. There was a good turnout on a warm and pleasent evening.
Some technical issues with control placement caused time delays, notably 103 & 113, which is regretted and apologised for. Mea culpa.
As this is a mid-week event for "competition, practice and training", with nothing but enjoyment as the ultimate objective, we have let the results stand. The league table will be compiled accordingly.
Next week is at Sunnyhurst Woods in Darwen. It is a relatively small area, so we will revert to our ratchet format of all or any 10s, before 15s, before 20s and a 45 minutes time limit.

About the area/map
Witton Park, to the west of Blackburn centre, is a large well maintained area dedicated to recreation and sports.
There are playing fields, an athletics track, cafe and playgrounds in the level areas by the river. On the flanking hills there is a complex mix of woodland and open giving good technical orienteering. From the top of Billinge Hill there are a series of downhill MTB tracks.
