Round up of the 2016-2017 season

The results for Botley event, end of May, were published some time ago.

Thanks to Heather for both hosting and planning the event. With the Summer
evening it was possible to get into the water meadows.

Rounding up the 2016-2017 season.
We had nine events in total. Including the pre-JK urban event in Bracknell.
With an average of 21 over the eight events excluding Brackell.
The Bracknell events entry (67) was bolstered by being in the pre-JK week.
It also saw the use of contactless electronic punching, full urban waterproof
maps and a dumbbell score event.

Another event that was popular was the City Centre event hosted out of the
University club. 42 runs were completed that evening, double the average,
including many newcomers.

The overall winners for the season were.
Women:
1st 200 Sarah Gales
2nd 199 Carol Edwards
3rd 197 Marie-Anne Fischer

Men:
1st 200 Nigel Bunn
2nd 198 Marcin Krzysztofik
3rd 194 Robin Bishop

Many thanks to all those who participated throughout the season, and in
particular those who planned and organised and event.

The 2017-2018 season will start in September.

Great Hollands (Bracknell) results are published

The results for the Great Hollands event #8 are now published.

Many thanks to Roger for organising and planning such an different Oxford Street-O Series event. There was a record turn out of about 70 participants partly due to the urban nature of the event, the location and that it was in the pre-JK week.
Thanks also need to go to Allan Farrington for providing the touch free punching system for the evening. Also to BKO for allowing us to use the Great Hollands area.

The main results for all the participants on the TVOC website.

From the results we have extracted all those who had already participated in a previous Oxford Street-O series event this season. These people have been placed into the usual Street-O results pages and points awarded.

Please let me know if I have missed anyone from the Street-O results and also if you spot any mistakes.

Kidlington results are published

The results for the Kidlington event #6 are now published.

Many thanks to Carol for planning and organising. Thanks also to the Black Horse for hosting us and reserving the window by the door. It was a good turnout last Wednesday with a couple of new faces joining us. I hope you enjoyed the run around the area, we look forward to seeing you again.

Marston results are published

The results for the Marston (OXSRAD) event #5 are now published.

Many thanks to Ben for planning and organising a great event with an new style of control collecting/punching/touching. Touch-O, had favourable comments, and as most were road signs this led to controls being at junctions of roads which allowed good route choice and run through.
Thanks also to the OXSRAD centre for hosting us on what proved to be a dry (wet underfoot), mild (well not sub-zero), evening.

Thankfully the forecast was correct in that Oxford was clear of rain from 18:30 onwards. Also a bonus that there was less wind about so not too chilly.

Headington results are published

The results for the Headington event #4 are now published.

Many thanks to Sarah for planning and organising. Thanks also to the Britannia Inn for hosting us again. It was a busy night with one of the highest turnouts for some time last Tuesday. A number of people also chose to run in festive gear to gain a few extra points. Again a tricky area where obtaining high scores was not that easy.
As usual, if you see any mistakes in the results, please let me know and I can try to fix them up.

Abingdon South results are published

The results for the Abingdon South event #3 are now published.

Many thanks to John for planning and organising. Thanks also to the White Horse for hosting us at our first event in the area. It was a good turnout last Tuesday with even our Chairman turning out for a light run. Again a tricky area where obtaining high scores was not that easy.
