Round 6 - Steering competition (10th August)
This was the final round of the series and despite the windy weather we decided to run a steering competition as we hadn't run one so far in the series. A course with 10 obstacles was set out, hitting the horn pad on the lighthouse and the two push-apart gates proved to be the "tricky" ones.
Each entrant had to complete 2 steering courses on the night, one going through the obstacles clockwise and then anti-clockwise but each counting as separate events/scores for the overall points.
It was very close between the top 4 for the overall series and this meetings score would decide their places, so it was agreed one person Rob Arlett would score all 4 each time.
Course 1 was won by Bob Bryant scoring just 8 points, with Russ Chilcott and Chris Locke tied on 9pts. Course 2 was won by Russ with 3pts, Malcolm Franks took 2nd place on 6 with Chris and Daron Maynard tied for 3rd on 12.
As it turned out Chris collected just enough points on the night to win the overall Scale Challenge series by the narrowest of margins he beat Bob 124 points to 123! Not too far behind them both was Russ in 3rd place on 121 with Daron 4th on 116.
