SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) RouteGadget mk2

Anyone who uses RouteGadget, the route analysis tool, will know that there are currently problems with the Java software that drives RG mk1. It seems that this will become more of  problem in the near future and will render the whole RG system useless. Fortunately Simon Errington is working on RG mk2, avoiding all the problems. It is still very much under development but SROC has installed the latest version on our RG site and it is available for viewing all our past events and testing usability. New functions are being added every few days, so check back regularly if you are interested.  There is not as yet the ability to draw new routes but this will be included soon. So for now any new routes should be added using the old version.

Many thanks to Bill & Dawn for hosting the Tower Trophy event on a blustery but dry night. The provisional results are now on the web as is the winner of the Tower Trophy. RouteGadget is also ready for your routes. Subject to any queries/appeals this year's winner is Ray Pickett. Many congratulations Ray a real boost for us 'oldies'. I have shown the individual/team multiplier we use for age and gender and the resultant adjusted scores. A reminder that the Tower Trophy winner must not have won it before. Don't forget that the next event is at Bolton North courtesy of Pete Kidd and Paul Turner. See you there - Bob

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) White Coppice Autumn series 2

Results for the White Coppice events held yesterday are on-line here, and RouteGadget is here. The weather forecast was ‘Changeable’ for Saturday 9th Nov. and this proved to be accurate – sun (while I put out the controls), rain and heavy hail squalls during the event and thunder and lightning when we brought in the controls!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Wigan South results

The results from Wigan South are now on the web. The tables will be updated after the weekend in case there are any appeals. Many thanks to Mark and Darren for developing a new area, I know how time consuming this is. Shame about the drizzle as it spoilt our 'dry' run. It wasn't really a problem except for the almost hallucinatory effect it produced through my glasses. Once again the chosen venue provided a very convivial atmosphere for the after run chat, an aspect of the events which I think we all find most enjoyable. Now on to Blackpool and the Tower Trophy! - Bob
