CLUB RELAY--Date and Venue Change ( Posted Tue October 28 )

Please see "Events" for further details about the upcoming Club Relay event to be hosted on a fast, furious and incredibly spectator-friendly course on the grounds of Haliburton House in Windsor, NS.

Hall-O-ween at Haliburton House Results ( Posted Sun October 26 )

Thank you to the well-sized group of participants who came out to experience Pam’s new map of Haliburton House in Windsor. We had a total of 41 participants completing this ‘Score-O with a twist’. Because of the size of the area, we decided to issue two maps to participants—with half of the controls on each map. This meant that competitors had to think on their feet as they received the second map with the clock still ticking away. A number of controls held Hallowe’en treats to collect as well, although I suspect a few participants chose not to sample the treats to keep their times fast. Thanks to Pam James for all her work mapping the area, providing advice to the course planner and race-day activities; and to Ian Clarke, Kevin and Angela McGrath for assisting with take-down.

2014 Four Seasons Chase - Standings After 9 Events ( Posted Mon October 20 )

The following are the current standings for the 2014 Four Seasons Chase after 9 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 3 or fewer events) will be posted here.
