Dover Raid results and checkpoint details are posted to http://www.UntamedAdventure.com/DoverRaid/ResultsO...
. We'll circulate these via a final email to all competitors tomorrow..
Breaking news . . . after confirming with Dave Lamb after he looked over the great "Frankenmap" and other route details posted online, and my validation of his team's passport . . . they DID indeed obtain CP #14 (which is why we announced their point total as 61 at the post-race honours, despite his telling me verbally that they missed 14 and another checkpoint -- they had 14 punched properly on their passport and we cranked through all the passports at the close of the race without giving his passport any special attention).
I think Dave is not active on AP, so you may want to go to him for the full explanation, but he summarized for me a combination where they pushed hard to #14 and beyond it en route to picking up #15 and then between wet map cases, a division of labour on their team where Chad carries the passport and does the actual punching while Dave owns the maps, and Dave's confusion of #13 with #14 during scans of their map after a couple re-foldings, had him confusing the next checkpoint they needed to visit as #14 instead #16 and so they ended up attacking #14 (a second time) after obtaining #15. They didn't find #14 this time (adding credence to the statement that they were slightly disoriented during some post cp #15 moments) and eventually moved on to #16 and then continued racing.
Just as overkill, here is the passport for Dave's team showing #14 clearly punched correctly: http://www.UntamedAdventure.com/DoverRaid/Team23Pa...
Thankfully for me, as I'm sure critics would claim favoritism for Dave and his team of Untamed NE athletes (who I train with and am good friends with), this has ZERO IMPACT on the final results. Dave and his team finished 7 minutes behind the Gallup duo to claim 3rd place overall, but they did genuinely finish with 61 points and only missed a single CP. The 4th place finisher was duo P Benoit and J Shultis (team The Young and the Rested) and they finished with 56 points.
My main takeaway here is that we at Untamed need to more aggressively adopt e-punching (SI or Emit or our own RFID concept) so that time at the finish line can be spent drinking beers and talking with the racers more than studying muddy (esp team #29!) passports -- a quick printout showing Dave his team's visit and timestamp to CP #14 would have brought this all to light quickly last evening.
Regardless, thanks everyone and look for more from us soon!
