Welcome to the HRCR Jogle Rally 2021. After the success of La
Slog 2020, I am pleased to roll out another 100 Leg Internet
table-top rally, this time starting in John o'Groats and
finishing in Land's End.
90 of the legs will take you on
a continuous route from
the northern to southern tips of the UK.
There will be 10
interludes where you will teleported to faraway places to tackle
navigational challenges on foreign maps. Don't worry about red
and amber countries or Covid vaccination passports, you will be
transported seamlessly through customs and bureaucracy to your
start TC. Plot your route, keep to the correct side of the road
to the finish TC, and then beam back to the UK.
route setters will be presenting you with straightforward
navigation throughout: variations on standard themes that you might
expect to be pushed through the window on a road rally. Many of
the sections will be just pre-defined PCs that you have to
visit. This is
afterall a marathon rally where even the most adept navigators
will make silly mistakes; so no trickery required and no hints
will be available or necessary.
There are still some Legs to be
defined so if you've competed a few times on Internet TTRs
and fancy being a route setter, let me know asap. (See also
Setter Guidelines above).
majority of the Legs will be pure plotting, but there will be a
sprinkling of real-time challenges for variety. As each Leg will
have a pre-defined start TC and a finish TC, via the
navigation you will defining a shortest overall
distance route between TCs. Like La Slog the maximum penalty
per Leg will be 10 minutes (600 marks).
Newcomers should read the
sections: General Regulations and Rally Procedures (links
above), and try out the Practice Rallies on the Event List
For the purposes of World Rankings, the 100
Legs will be divided into four separate events of 25
starts on September 1, 2021 with Leg 1, then one Leg per day
until December 9, 2021. There will be 10 days of grace at the
end so all answers need to be in by December 19, 2021 to avoid
interferring with Christmas. Your choice whether you have a
daily solving ritual or attempt the Legs in batches.
always I am trying to raise money for charity from these events. However,
I've changed the donation procedure to self-certification. You should pay your "Entry
Fee" direct to your nominated charity rather than via me.
Your Entry Fee could be a money payment or perhaps the sale
value of goods given to a charity shop. This:
a) reduces my admin
b) enables you to possibly increase your
donation value by gift-aiding
c) allows you to choose your own
If you decide to enter, choose your
charity and donate money or goods to the value of at least £25. Then
complete the Entry Form (link above) quoting your gross (gift-aided if
possible) donation (in £ sterling) and nominated charity.
Thanks for your continued support.
