Nov18 Final Results for the WIM Galoppen at Inside Park  are now available, as it Routegadget. Please post your routes.
The position of the distinctive tree (control 146) was incorrectly located on the map, about 25-30m E of where it should have been. As a result, we received a protest relating to the Brown course. After discussions with the Controller and Planner, the Organiser has decided that the Brown course will be amended to end at control 25, with the legs to control 26 (146) and the Finish being omitted. The updated results  have now been published. The results of all other courses remain unchanged.

Many thanks to all those from WIM who planned, organised and officiated at the event.
