June Score Series Comments:

As series co-ordinator it was gratifying to see so many competitors turning out for a mid-week bash.  The numbers have steadily grown from 4 at our very first such event 2 years ago (heavy rain!) to 32 (warm and dry) for Peel Park.  In 2014 the Maxi course attracted 44 different competitors over the 4 weeks and the Midi 17.

This is the 3rd year we've run the series which is now standardised as 21 controls for the MAXI and 14 for the MIDI course.  We use small areas that have good terrain.  The format is as simple as we can make it, 21 controls, 2 courses, start & finish at the car park/registration and all requiring minimal manpower.

The planner's challenge is to provide good route choice options and to make it difficult for most competitors to visit all controls within the allotted 45 minutes.  In the table below the top number is the total entries and the bracketed number is how many visited all controls in under 45 minutes.
