Summer Scatter, Sunday 5th May 2013
The Summer Scatter is a 5 hour daylight navigational scatter, set specifically as a fun and light-hearted event that everybody can enjoy, and is contained entirely on OS Landranger map 185 (which will be available if needed at the start).
It will take place on Sunday 5th May meeting at Broadlands Carpark (University of Southampton) from 1400h for a 1500h start and finishing at 2000h at a pub somewhere on route.
There will be three different classes running: Beginners, Novices and Experts, with awards presented to the top in each class.
We would like to see as many people out as possible, past, present and possible future WMC members, although you are reminded that this is primarily a FUN event - anyone taking it too seriously will be laughed at, and probably soaked!
Some things you might need:
A romer and a map will be available to purchase at the start. It is also recommended to have a full tank of fuel, but there will be plenty of time to get fuel during the event.
Don't worry if you've never seen a map or plotted references before, there will be plenty of experts on hand to help and explain things, with no shortage of anecdotes of how not to do it.....
