Welcome to the two Crowless TT Rallies.
Following the success of the 2017/2018 Championship, these are mid-term events with the route cards constructed by regular competitors.
I am pleased to enlist the support of: Geoff Masterman, Peter
Rushforth, Ian Canavan, Monica Dowson, David Irwin, Keith
Cunningham, Phil Robbins, Bart den Hartog, Ewan Leeming, Richard
Baty, Keith Irvin, Alex Hoult and Bob Blackstock.
Major changes were made in
2012. Prior to then you verified your route solution by
answering a set of Route Check questions. This was never the
most popular method of confirming you had taken the correct
route since it was all too easy to miscount, for example, the
number of churches you had passed.
Establishing the framework for this innovative marking of your solutions has required many hours of programming, but I hope you will agree that this will make your table-top rallying significantly more enjoyable.
The first event starts on May 1, 2018, but a Practice Route Card will be available earlier. This should give you time to experiment and become comfortable with this style of competition.
Registration and practising is free, but if you want to enter the events the fee is £10 (minimum). Remember, the proceeds go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, so even if you can't find the time to take part please consider entering anyway knowing you will be contributing to a worthwhile charity.
Read on for more details about the events.
Crowless Rallies 2018
with two events:
All events start and finish at 22:00 hours.
ROUTE CARDS. On each event there will be 12 Route Cards of varying difficulty from straightforward navigation (the kind you might expect on a UK road rally) to navigation of a thought-provoking and cryptic nature. All competitors should attempt as many Route Cards as possible. The Route Cards can be attempted in any order.
RESULTS. The 11 Route Card answers with the least penalties
will count towards your overall score i.e. if you have attempted
all 12 Route Cards your worst score will be dropped.
DURATION. You will have 31 days to submit your solutions.
NO MAPS TO BUY! The route solutions need to be plotted on (usually)
extracts of 1:50000 scale Ordnance Survey maps which are
available on-screen and for printing.
CLASSES. This is an Open event, there are no experience classes.
REGISTRATION is free via the Entry Form and will allow you access to a Practice Route Card (see below) to try out the map marking procedures for proving you have followed the correct route.
