Comments: Please accept my apologies for the slow creation of the results. First of all I had to dry out the answer sheets and then I had to decipher the answers. Further scrutiny pointed to dubious placing of the dots to represent the location of the control. In the interests of fairness I have allocated points for wrong answers where at least 50% of the competitors had the same wrong answer which was obviously before or after in sequence to the correct one.
Back to multiple choice next time!

SONiC Series Info
SONiCs are events held during the evening hours of darkness and take place either around streets or in parks/woods. They are score events where you get an hour to visit as many controls as you can, with everyone starting at the same time. For insurance purposes juniors under the age (actual age) of 16 are not allowed to compete in street events unaccompanied. For the street events a small torch is helpful to read the map. For forest events a stronger (head)torch is recommended.
