Important note for B & C classes: Unfortunately the marshalls at the event centre on day 1 asked you to punch a start control S1 BEFORE you got onto your bus. This should not have happened. It was intended that you punch the start control only AFTER you got off the bus.

The tags only register the first time they see a control, so when you punched S1 again as you got off the bus this second control was not recorded, since the tags already had the previous S1 control registered. Consequently we cannot tell what time you got off the bus so don't know what time you actually started. It was hoped that since we knew what time each bus arrived, and knew who should have been on which bus, we would be able to work out your start time from that. However, because some competitors ignored the marshalling directions and parked their cars in the restricted areas at the entrance to the event centre, the buses were delayed because they could either not get in at all, or not turn around once they'd arrived. This caused the whole bus timetable to be seriously delayed. To avoid having people waiting so long out in the rain it was decided to pack the buses as quickly as possible when they did arrive, and it seems that way too many teams got on the wrong buses. Thus it was impossible to work out who arrived at the start at what time.

The controller therefore made a decision to start timing the courses from your time at the first control, so the time from S1 to DB (for the C class) and from S1 to DD (for the B class) has been ignored and treated as a 'road crossing timeout'.

Note for E,A,L,M,S classes: We have two ways to do the start times, we can use your programmed start time, or we can use a punched start time. One day 1, because of the parking difficulties with all the mud and the distance to the start there was a high probability of many teams turning up late, so the controller decided to go with punched starts for all. The decision was also made to punch at the Start-2 point so that marshalls could have time to check that all teams punched ok and to note any that weren't. This means that all run times are measured from the start-2 point, not the actual start, but the 2 minutes extra applies to everyone so it really doesn't matter. For score classes, the allowed time out was extended by 3 minutes so allow for the time difference so that penalties were not incurred.
For those armchair orienteers who have enquired as to why results were not immediately available online during the competition as usual, the camp sites and the event centre were in forests in remote areas of Scotland, with very limited phone availability - most of the time the signals drifted between no-signal and just one bar. At the C and S camp there was no signal at all apart from one spot around 800m away from where were working, at the other camp results were uploaded at 18:55 after trying 4 or 5 times for each file. All results were uploaded again at 01:15 on Sunday morning - this took over 90 minutes at a connection speed which dropped below 500 bits per second for much of the time...not exactly broadband! Sadly it simply isn't cost effective to install satellite uplinks for just a few hours use.
Note: if you downloaded these prior to 19:00 on Monday 30th October, please re-download them. The grid references in the orginal files were incorrect.
