Leeming Senior High School
Following on from the inaugural event last year, Leeming Senior High School was the venue for the UltraSprint this year. Three courses shoe-horned into a smallish campus, lots of twists and turns and head scratching. The school gardeners had been enthusiastically removing trees in the lead up to the event (unbeknown to the setter until the day before!) and it would seem they even relocated some trees (or was that the mapper’s slightly dodgy mapping?). The courses appeared to be challenging enough and were well received and I don’t think anyone found themselves inside a Year 8 Maths class.
With no control descriptions you needed to be ultra careful to select the correct control as all were located very close together often on similar features. Perfect control picking skills at speed were rewarded while each mispunch accrued a 30 second time penalty. Was it faster to ponder or punch wrong and run?
A big thank you to the helpers on the day. Rosalie McCauley for organising such a smooth computing system and to Melinda Richards and Nicole Davis for their efforts on registration.
Thanks go to Sten and Ruben Classens, Kate, Lachlan and Rohan Braid for collecting controls.
Thanks to the Admin staff at Leeming SHS for allowing us access to the site – very much appreciated.
Finally, thanks to Ceri Pass for setting up the assembly area and organising the morning.
Setter - UltraSprint 2019
There is a PDF on Eventor with the combined results of all 3 courses.
The times in the PDF are per course and they are the adjusted time per courses so include the time penalties for wrong/missing controls by courses.
For those interested in the splits via course, these can be found for this event at;
