Did they have to go twice as far?

I do doubling at most Summer events - In Street Series the winner has to get double my points and be back in time (I'm allowed to go over) and at Park/Urban I have to be less than double their time. Works exceptionally well, my personal challenge.

Yes, so the idea was that teams who normally run in the slowest group would have their points doubled, and the intermediate group would have a 50% bonus while the fastest group would just get their raw score.

I don't know how that panned out in the 'official' results but we would not have been the only team to get all the controls.

Seems like both the Adelaide and Chch groups have rogaines - we'll have to get Melbourne on to it (Jayne has taken one of the coaches rogaining, so that's a start...)!

Said coach is still talking to me, which is a good sign (despite putting up with some pretty thick bush and me being upset about a lot of unmarked roads. Coming 3rd helped!)

I've mentioned it before but no one seemed that keen - we probably need to actually go to the run club...
