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.

Uncle JiM:
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.
