Among other things:

"Competitors who do not use the SI e-stick indicated in the start program will be disqualified"

I advise everybody to read the program carefully!!

Uncle JiM:
Surely they dont mean to be that harsh, shouldn't it be something like

"Competitors who do not inform the Organisers, pry to there run, that they are using a different SI e-stick then the one indicated in the start program, will be disqualified"

Is it really that much hassle if someone is using a different stick? Generally only happens if somebody forgets there's and borrows one. Most systems it'd be pretty easy to change. Fair enough it'd be annoying if everyone used a different stick but that seems pretty unlikely. Disqualification would seem pretty harsh.

Maybe the wording is a bit harsh! If we get advised prior to the run (but not at the Start!), then we will be able to accommodate changes.

What a great couple of days! Wagga Wagga put on two seriously good events; I really enjoyed the granite test.

Totally agree. Great events. Will split times go up somewhere?

Hopefully on AP and by course? Golfer? If I get a csv export from SI/OE, can do (catheoin at ozemail dot com dot au)

Great weekend, even if today defeated me. Thanks!

Thanks all for the kind comments. I will pass on to the club. Will get splits up tomorrow night and Route Gadget should also be available in a day or so: sorry, a tad weary tonight!

I will put the AP spits up when I get the csv splits for RG - maps ready to go

AP splits loaded

both day's splits on Saturday, but labelled SL14 & SL15

Routegadget links:

SL 14

SL 15

lazydave's gps tracks added while testing the RG load

Nice, how'd you manage that?

You can the first day were the map doesnt quite fit, I was a lot smoother than most of that GPS track :)

Yeah great weekend of orienteering, thanks :)

I ran down the track on the little spur on the approach to 14 on Saturday - my GPS doesn't agree!

Dave & Shep, I had to juggle the map to get the best fit overall for gps - locally the fit was fine but there is a bit of distortion for the full map - nothing an OCAD "rubbersheet" adjustment wouldn't fix.

Dave, I extracted the gpx file from your AP log & loaded it straight into Routegadget without any adjustments, to check I had the map in the right location - I think RG snaps to the controls based on elapsed time.
