From TheInvisibleLog (Neil Barr)
A very different (and much improved) local event. Quite a contrast to my last SS event. On that day, I filled out a paper entry form, went to the start, was given a paper map and asked to draw my course. I finished and left before I saw results. Today – rocked up and entered by dipping the SI stick and point at my preferred course on a touch screen. Done. Was then handed a pre-printed PreTex map. After a third of the course I went past the assembly and had people yelling out how far ahead or behind I was. On finish I immediately saw my results on the big screen and watched Nigel’s performance out there and knew he had blown a control before he arrived back to give me a rare 4 second win.
Thanks to Toph and Leon. Leon designed courses that made the most of the now quite old map I made back in 1998. I enjoyed them. Toph set up the radio controls and big screen, and also secured the first Australian use of the beta O-Lynx entry system. Its really a table front end to OE. But it does what OE fails to do – provide a simple easy to follow interface.
Job well done boys!
