Anyone know why most classes voided at WMOC?

Locked gate.

Surely not a reason to void most classes?

From WMOC homepage:
Information about Sprint Final voided results
In Sprint Final in many classes results were voided. Organizers received complaints and also several protests about a gate being closed (which is open on the map). Gate was closed because owner did not open it on 7.07 morning as agreed before. We reached to the owner over the phone and she organised a person with the keys but none of them worked. Jury went through all courses and voided results for classes where any reasonable route choice might go through those gates.
We apologise to all participants for not being able to solve this issue.

Sheesh sorry I started a duplicate thread on this topic. I looked in the event discussion to see if a topic had been started but it didn't even occur to me to check the general discussion. Carry on here or switch to the event-connected thread, as you wish.

She did, but evil still ensues. #spoileralert
