The opportunity to use the self-contained Rushmoor Arena in conjunction with a booking of the rest of the Long Valley (North) Military Traimimh Area was too good to ignore. It provided the firm surface required by wheelchairs, and enough scope for a reasonable PreO event. Thank you too those who came to enjoy it, even at the last minute! Thanks for the absolutely necessary assistance.
I tried to give you an experience of some of the ‘distractions’ used in planning – always expect the unexpected (timed control #4, with diffeerent control descriptiosn for the same site; BriTOL #13 & Intro #7 not being in the correct reentrant - think about the bigger picture before focussing on the flags).
At the endof the day I voided #15 on the BriTOL course. There was a muddle between the tree trunks (the correct vegetation boundary at flag height) and the overhead canopy. It was a valid problem to select, but I should have ensured more separation between the flags to have made the choice a fairer challenge. The spread of answers between all 4 options from all standards of competitor (the top 4 all gave a different answer!) gives a clue that it was not a good, fair test.
