Garnet Hill
December 30, 2007

In an attempt to do something a little different for the ESG qualifier at Garnet Hill, we held a 90 minute score-o. This way all skiers could compete on the same course, but the results would still be available by class for ESG ranking purposes. In a score-o format, the 23 controls resulted in 23 factorial pairs of possible control to control route choices. That's 2.59 x 1022 possibilities!

As a further challenge, the start was at a remote location with the finish at the ski shop. The skiers arrived at an unknown spot, got their map on the clock and were immediately hit with a route choice.

Most controls were worth 1 point except that numbers 20-23 were worth 3. The overtime penalty was 3 points per minute and some people paid the price for tardiness. Cindy Gretzinger did very well with getting 15 points but was five minutes late so ended up with 0. David Zdunczyk actually had a net of minus 4. But Randy McGarvey took the biggest hit, with 21 penalty points against a raw score of 28.

Two skiers got perfect scores - 31 points - Margus Hallik and Scott Pleban with Margus edging Scott by 19 seconds.

Big thank yous are due to Betsy Hawes who arranged for permission to use our remote starting point and to Lenny Cormier of AOK made a last minute loan of the punchcards we used in the meet.
