Some late results just in. Penultimate race of the DNC season and it’s mostly still all to play for although a season victory for Matthew on Long is assured. One spot higher than last year. But young Ewan Musgrave can still pull off the shock of the season by finishing above father Jon. He’s going to need victory on the final day however.
Having battled for years to try to get the better of Hazel Wright, Drew Tivendale now languishes a few points behind a talented Eilidh Campbell who has surely wrapped up the Ladies prize.
On Medium, the 1-2-3 positions of last week’s table have been reversed and Nick Hale takes a 2 point lead into the final week. Unbelievably,
the first dead heat of the season means any one of 4 people can still win the overall title. Kirsty Campbell, just 2 points behind Nick, is a guaranteed Ladies winner but can she win overall? Possibly a first for the DNC.
Amber Graham and Catriona Chapman in second and third have showed great progress over the season. All that training really paying off.
Bob Sheridan and Dan Gooch have graciously agreed to help out on the final event on Wednesday at Tilquhillie. Courses planned by Scott
Reynolds. I’ll have to give them all 50 points each 😊. See you all at the prize-giving at Burnett Arms, Banchory.
Still very close on medium. The only clear winner looks like Matthew on Long.
Short course 3.3 10 controls
Long course 4.9 12 controls
CONGRATULATIONS! Scottish Night Champ 2019
Eilidh Campbell won the W18 class at the Champs held at John Muir Country Park last weekend and Kirsty also made the top 3 coming in 3rd.
Nice new area – fairly flat and fast. Seemed to be enjoyed by all I’m told. Did anyone spot the Ghost of Pudding Shakers Past?
Coming to the end of the 2018 and half way through the current DNC season so time for a round up.
Good week for the underdogs with Lachlan Kirk taking victory on the medium in his first outing of the season. Impressive indeed but David Esson’s consistency means he maintains his lead. Old Man Tivendale proves the value of consistency with his dodgy run taking him up to a narrow second place. Several other late starters to the season are now showing their colours and proving it is still wide open on the medium with the best 9 to count.
Young Man Tivendale maintains his second place despite an even dodgier run on long. But Ewan Musgrave proves youth can still triumph over experience by taking his first victory on the long course. Can his father catch him?
Eilidh Campbell and Sarah Dunn are having a continuing battle for first lady on the Long, both having run 7 events and Eilidh currently leading thanks to organising Potarch but Sarah gets 50 next week to cancel that out so watch this space….. Meanwhile sister Kirsty Campbell is leading lady in the Mini Night Cup and Rachel is more than pleasantly surprised to find herself in second place and first Senior W but realises this is entirely due to organising Tyrebagger and attending more events than the other old ladies and nearest rival, Lesley Gomersall, could easily overtake her if she manages to make it to a few more next year and maintain her spookily consistent 40 points each time.
Only David Esson can now guarantee his Easter egg prize for a perfect season of DNC attendance. But remember, this is the training ground of future champions. British Night Champs at Muir of Dinnet this season. I hope to see many DNC Die Hards climbing the podium at the end of February.
