Eight crews took part in the January Scatter, organised very well by Mike Patton and John Earl.
Most navigators found it harder than it first looked, but at the finish stories and banter was the order. George Mullins a past Festival winner, this time navigating Pete Elkins found the going not to his liking which showed in the results.
Ross Whittock this time navigating for his mother, brave lad, had an adventurous evening when the Landrover they were competing in cried enough, so Ross legged it home to collect the ever faithful Rover, first to tow in the Landrover then continue to complete the Scatter.
Both Martin and Mark were on the case but mention must also go to Steph Whittock who on her first time on the maps navigated her dad into third position.
Mike Patton and John Earl are organising a Navigational Scatter starting and finishing at The Rose & Crown, Hinton Charterhouse.
There is no official route and no time controls so navigation is much easier, and when you do find the clues you will be using some of the best roads in the area.
This is a perfect event for beginners requiring only a car, a willing friend to map read, copies of maps 172 & 183 (spares available) and some basic stationary.
Contact details for Mike Patton are included in the regulations.
