Event organisers! How often have you wondered: what is a foolproof method of avoiding misplaced controls; how to calculate climb on a course; how on earth do you get the circle sizes right in Condes, what is the best way to allocate start times; what is the essential difference between a Sprint and Middle race; where can I find the rules for organising the Easter 3-Day; and how do I get rid of that dashed line in Condes? Your trials are over - all this and more will be revealed (bit by bit) in our new monthly Technical Talk email newsletter. The wise and experienced Lindsay Pender will be our inaugural editor. Stay tuned for more information in early 2021.
