Results from Storm the Citadel, 14 November 2015 ( Posted Thu December 31 )

28 eager competitors came out for the November 14th point-to-point orienteering event at the Halifax Citadel. The weather was cool and bright for this new location with all its tunnels, moats and ramparts. A cannon was fired to release the first starters; fitting for this fortress location. Times for competitors on all three courses (beginner, intermediate and advanced) varied as everyone was forced to adapt to this unique multi-level environment, but all came back excited about this new venue.

Many thanks to Ian Clark for vetting the controls, and Emily Secord for handling registration.

2015 Four Seasons Chase - Final Standings ( Posted Sun December 20 )

The following are the Final Standings for the 2015 Four Seasons Chase after 8 events. For an event that was missed, the average of the three slowest times on the applicable course is added to an individuals time. The other adjustment is for those who get less than the full number of controls for a course, their average leg time for that course is used to extrapolate their total time at that event for all controls. For any DSQs (lost punch card etc), you will receive either your finish time or the penalty time, whichever is worse.

Only those eligible (missed 2 or fewer events as the series will only be 8 events this year (75% participation)) will be posted here.
