Steve was 3rd Overall in the Winter Championship
Here's a photo of me with the medals, my trusty Basic equipment potis and
Basic Roamer, items which I get a chance to use on table top events and
they still go out with me on Friday night 12-cars.
I enjoy more
and more doing the Internet table-top series. It throws up new challenges
in the traditional route cards and great amounts of stress on the real
The tension that builds just before opening a route
card, the frustration suffered when I am up against the clock to get to
the finish then an obstacle pops up and delays you, particularly autograph
hunters just around the penultimate bend.
My navigator always
seems to have a weak bladder. All this is surpassed by the wave of relief
when I press the submit button and find that I finished before going OTL
and If I was lucky, got the correct route.
The whole event is
very well run and supported from start to finish. The Internet Application
works very well.
The navigation difficulty is about right for the
real time sections although it takes a bit of time to tune in when
presented with a string of characters or a bunch of tulips. The navigation
legs are extremely tough or tedious but It's a great feeling when you have
been sitting looking at the navigation for hours, or even days, then a you
have a light bulb moment and everything clicks into place.
forward to the next one, not too soon though!.
