Were you a day late?

I thought we agreed you are restricted to clocks and no other helping at the start before your race?

Mmm, well its just not panning out like that. Manic today, every orienteer decided to start at once, so we really put the q into queuing start.

Aoife asked what queuing starts means. My explanation - all the grannies want to start an hour before the first start and will start queuing then, all the teenagers will want to start at the last start and will turn up then... It's a good concept but hard to get it right.

Yep, especially when the juniors have their own start... its grannies all the way down :)

Apparently they allocate blocks of time to queue in in other countries.
Worked better today, we did 30s starts from the go-get
