Tehidy results

Another great Night event at Tehidy, this time it was Xmas Scrabble, a 1-hour Score Event where control numbers related to letters with their corresponding Scrabble score.

Competitors had to make Christmas related words, but couldn’t use the same letter consecutively in a word. Bonuses were to be had for words with six letters or more, but time penalties for going beyond the hour. They were also given about 10 minutes before the Start to study the maps and make a plan.

So, on a drizzly night, 16 people set out, some in pairs, to try to make as many or as long a word(s) as possible.

At the end there was one clear winner in Will Hancock who spelled out Angels, Donkey and Snow for a massive 49 points. Barry would have been up there near the top if he could have spelled Christmas properly!

Most folks then retired to the house to join the non-runners for some festive food and drink and check the results to make sure the words were festive enough!


Will Hancock – Angels, Donkey, Snow – 49 points

Steve Beech – Yuletide, Flu – 32 points

Simon Freer – Humbug – 28 points

Matthew Wright – Jesus, Snow – 19 points

Ron Barratt – Twelve – 18 points

Rob Sneyd – Boy, Babe – 16 points

Annabel Pring – Snow, Elf – 13 points

Sarah/Bernard – Snows – 8 points

Katie Wright – Snow – 7 points

Richard Bown

Chris Moncaster – got every control, but no words!

Barry Olds

 Alan Middleton – Hangover – 30 points, but 35 minutes over


Many thanks to Phil and Adele for hosting a very enjoyable evening.

Penhale South results

The results for both this weekend's events are now HERE. It looks like there were 3 SI-boxes that had ‘incorrect’ clock times. Namely #195, #198 & #206.


The split times (for the legs affected) have been manually adjusted to facilitate the correct usage of RouteGadget & SplitsBrowser. This has not affected any competitors overall time.
