Up with the leg before and after 18 voided.
I took an excellent route to 18 (all the way around on the tracks), but did have a bit of trouble finding it.
Was wondering what had happened to the times. You wouldn't be allowed to do that in a WRE :-).
...but it's ok to reinstate someone at JWOC who punches the Fin-5 last control instead of their own!
Neil, I would just have let the results stand as they were, including 18, seriously :)
I like to have as many people finish as possible and to feel the time recorded matches their achievements (see Clare's comment).
I also think being the mapper breeds overconfidence in placing controls. I was in a hurry and in twilight and admit I didn't really give the placement the usual careful treatment. Add time pressure (plenty of that) and I suspect it was almost inevitable.
Re WRE- glad it wasn't. I read elsewhere that the IOF Mapping group is going to work harder to enforce WRE standards which I presume means more pressure to spot print. If so, I predict fewer WREs and thus less income. According to another rather popular blog the money is a problem, so there will be some trade offs.
@jennycas Which day was that? I wasn't there for the Relay
Golsater in the middle final is what I heard - certainly she was initially (briefly) down as a DNF and missing the last control.
Last control at the Middle was at the end of the chute for PPL's race, more than far enough away from the JWOC last control
I definitely wouldn't mind which way the results came out :)
Yes, but as setter I like disposing of the garbage control.
Seems like a good common sense decision to me.
