Yes David and Julie were really impressive.

In 2010 we were tempted by being near the HH lights when it was dark, cold and windy and my coat was leaky ( and we were over the electric fences). Not our best event !

100% agree about the stupid team names. Did you find any results online?

I only found team members thanks to the link posted in the WRC thread. For the event website itself you needed to know the team name, which I did not. At least David and Julie made it easy to find them.

Results tab appeared on the website late yesterday:

BUT the only list which shows every team from first to last is the one called 'split times', and that doesn't show what the team's placing is in their gender/age category, so I had to use that list in conjunction with the search function in the confirmed teams list to work out who was in each team, and then once I'd identified the people belonging to the team names I'd go back to the category placings to figure out where my friends had actually come, but it's not really helpful to just look at WV for example, need to actually look at the "WO including YY, WV, WSV, WXSV" to see where someone actually came in the entire gender's placings...and then back to the split times list to see where they came overall.

Anyway, great work by Chris & Karen to be on the same score as Thor & Tamsin (14th & 13th women respectively) and 2nd women's Supervets!

The results from Latvia 2017 were presented much more intelligibly, as a full list which included names of team members plus their placings in each category. Hopefully the Americans will follow their example next year, not the Catalan approach!

Split times seem a bit useless for a rogaine.

How else would we know which teams went to which controls?
(OK, from the GPS tracking, but in a local event Navlight splits are really interesting when analysing other teams' routes!)
