Maybe you were reading a bulletin from another event.

Anyway I had a run, I socialised. No harm done. Except maybe to my night time riding confidence!

Page 26 which relates to day 2 and 3 mentions EOD courses and their procedures. Must admit it should have been made clearer on page 8 which is dedicated to enter on the day.

Well there you go. Admittedly I only read the EOD page before driving up because there was too much other info for me to take in but that's more than many people read in the Bulletins! I had read the entire Bulletin earlier in the week but couldn't remember all the info.

Whoever drafted the bulletin wanted to make EOD's register by 1pm for the Narrogin Sprint. The first non-elite start wasn't until 1:15, fortunately I picked it up and got it changed to 2pm, but some of the EOD courses won't be available until almost 2:30 because there are official starters until then.

Just another case of too much info, too many places to look. Yeah I know, online can provide more up-to-date info but I recall someone saying at a recent AGM that the website wasn't going to be updated anymore if we didn't get a Promotions Convenor! Got to say the EODs are getting a raw deal having to start at 11pm. If I can't ride my bike in the dark, finding controls in the dark would be a real hassle.

Simmo I think EOD registration times are more to do with the fact that the computer people will get overwhelmed trying to deal with registrations and finishers at the same time. I made sure to register before the first finishers came along yesterday so the operators didn't get swamped. I saw first hand what happens when you try and interrupt the process of the finish team when I and the second last finisher almost got our heads bitten off by accidentally subverting the system! I think Rosalie would be happier with no EODs at a three day carnival like we just had; OE just can't deal with it. Mind you if there hadn't been EODs, well I probably wouldn't have come along (not that I was needed as it turned out).
