WRNL 6 - Corfe Castle

Saturday 9th December

60 minute straight(ish) score
WRNL 6 is the 2nd WSX event in the Wessex Region Night League for 2022/23. A great new area for which the map offers a mixture of urban and open heathland. The course is a 60 minute straight(ish) score (includes 5 dumbell bonus control pairs - see below) using SIAC enabled SI control stations on small O kites.
The event centre is the Bankes Arms with food and drink available. In order to give our hosts a "heads-up" on numbers eating, the entry form will ask you to indicate if you expect to want food.

Course and Score Information
You have 60 minutes from the Start to Finish via as many controls as you can.
There are a total of 23 controls - 10 worth 10 points each, 9 worth 20 points each and 4 worth 30 points each to give a total of 400 points. Five pairs of these controls also have 20 point bonuses available if (and only if) they are completed consecutively in either direction as "dumbells". These pairs of controls are linked by lines shown on the map. This is the same dumbell system that was used at the earlier West Moors night league event. So with dumbell bonuses a score of 500 points is possible. 10 points penalty per part minute late after 1 hour and 10 points bonus per complete minute early if the course is cleared including all the dumbell bonuses.

Food Options
Please order on the night from the menu
It would be useful to the pub if people could indicate when entering if they are likely to stay and eat after running.
