I saw the master control map afterwards and yes there there was a control on the small cliff in the watercourse south and slightly west from #16. Surprised because I ended up using that as an attackpoint (was my third attempt at it) and didn't see the control there although didn't go all the way in.

crap I think I hit that control and missed the actual control to my left by a narrow margin as i scooted through.

Any reason why TBT isn't picking up routes from AP? Craig and I have both uploaded and I know mine's public. My GPS route is one minute different to the results download though, would that be why?

Should be ok but might be something to do with the changes Paul has made recently - if you want to see it sooner though you can upload to Eventor and that will work... Then I can try reconcile my first ever mispunch :( againt your control locations

I still haven't figured out how to upload directly to TBT. Can't see the option on the event page.

I think that is currently only available on non-O events I've mentioned that to Paul too its part of the user system expansion

Bleh, these splits through the website are rubbish. Any idea who administers this program? When two people have the same split or cumulative time, it records them as one person rather than two, e.g. one of my splits it says I'm 5th but if you count them all up, I'm actually 9th. Looking at the finish it looks like I've lost two spots in the finish split but it's just because there are two double ups ahead of me at the last control. Stupid.

No idea - never seen that page before!

It links to the splits page on the OAWA website.

Out of curiosity, I noticed today there was a course 1a and 1b but they were identical. Tomorrow is the same. Is it the same course and why is there an 'a' and 'b' if that's the case?

not entirely sure. I am sure there will be good logic for it and someone will let you know.

Well done by the way. You may have f***ed up #16 today but Simon Rouse f***ed it up worse than you did so you weren't last on that one :P

tRicky - that page is the splits stuff that Juffy wrote pulling the splits out of Eventor. Speak to him regarding where the anomaly is - it cold be OE, Eventor or Paul's stuff :-)

Yeah, thanks Nicole. :p

tRicky - the 1a/1b thing is the IOF being idiots. The splits to my project manager, I'm sure he'll have a hole in my schedule somewhere in 2019.

Why do you need a gap that's already on the list lol

Ta, I heard about the 1a/1b thing from someone at the event yesterday. I have the IOF to thank for Tim Robertson running the M21E course!

For a world ranking event IOF has a tendency to assume that everyone on the same course as the senior elites is running in the WRE also. It wouldn't really have been fair for the junior men to be part of the WRE in the Aust middle just because they happened to have the same course when the junior women didn't get that opportunity because their course was different from the senior women's, hence the 1a/1b. I guess if the entry info clearly stated that to run the WRE you have to run senior elites then that's fair enough.

But for the Aust sprint I had expected that the juniors, all being on the same courses as the seniors anyway, would intentionally be included in the WRE as they were last year in ACT...might be that there was concern over some juniors not yet having an IOF runner ID, which is now required before the race (previously IOF used to allocate them afterwards to anyone who didn't have an ID, but they've got sick of doing this).

So the juniors only have themselves to blame really.
