Thread: Trec today

  1. #1

    Default Trec today

    Got there rather early after having a nightmare loading sesh with the nedlet. Parked next to pigs so of course, Gem was convinced they were going to attack her. Anyway, heres my day...

    CoP - 5 for our walk, but we apparently broke from canter that i didnt see, but we spooked in ... See morewalk so surprised that didnt get a 0 also.

    PTV - bending - 7, we were next to go after someone had a bad fall at the low branches, so decided to miss them out, had a refusal at the stile fence (no there were no odd designs, or fillers, just blue and yellow poles!) - 4, the gate we abandoned after about 5mins of trying to close it(!) - 0, ridden s bend - 10! ridden ditch - 6, trailer - didnt do it, led s bend - 10, led ditch - 10, immobility - too long to put her in the circle - 0, mounting - 5, ridden footbridge - 10, path crossing - 10, ride down hill - 10, corridor - 7 (clipped a pole in our two strided jump to clear the poles) and reinback - 6 (again, clipped pole). so pleased after that.

    POR - DISASTER!!! got 41 for it in total, i missed a checkpoint and two tickets, and missed about about a whole mile and a half or something rediculous as i got the wrong path! my map reading/copying skills leave alot to be desired! not good all in all, and gem was naughty, rearing up like a trooper, and generally being a sod pulling and wanting to go go go!!! but we just about got back, despite missing such an important bit, and therefore only got 41!

    Overall though, for our first ever trec competition, we got 3rd for level one individuals. Next time, i want to be in a pair, otherwise i might give it up as a bad job!!! ](*,) I dont fancy getting lost again, whats embarrassing was, i knew the woods we were in okish, yet cos we entered from another entrance, i was totally thrown and extremely lost!

    That sounds like a reasonably good score for a first time - and 3rd place! Well done!

    The main thing is, did you enjoy it?

    Well done! I'd never have the guts to go it alone, they'd never see me again after the POR!

    I enjoyed it up til the POR, when i found out that my map marking pens were too thick, and that i had absolutely no clue as to where i was going!!! That spoilt it alot, but other than that yes, i enjoyed. There were pro pics also, which i bet will be online soon.

    PL52, i dont have the guts to go alone in future, thats put me off doing it alone! Rach1980, i need you!!!

    Peaches, you fancy being my partner Meet you half way in Yorks somewhere for a trec!
