Sherwood & Notts Forest Trailquest

Sherwood & Notts Forest Trailquest
Maiden Voyage into Trailquests proves a success.

A number of the Lincsquad crew headed of to have a go at the Trailquest organised by Dark and White.

Andy Coultas teamed up with Paul Carvill, Dan Broughton teamed up with John Pettinger and Michael Ogle teamed up with Dave Allen (Scunny Poly CC). John Pettinger and Dan Broughton set of first after clocking in and waiting for a few minutes for Andy and Paul to join them. They decided to head off as a group for some of the further checkpoints and progressed well. As a group though, we lost a lot of time at each checkpoint while each member “dibbed” in.

Dave Allen recovers with a cup of tea - leftMichael and Dave were making good progress until Dave had a small fall which resulted in a bit of a battered forehead and Michael thinking Dave was still in tow (unbeknown to Michael it was another Trailquester) headed for the next checkpoint only to discover Dave was still somewhere near the old one. Precious time was lost re-uniting and Dave still looked dazed and confused at the finish. Michael

Andy, Paul, John and Dan finished their quest by looking for the closer checkpoints near HQ and we slowly ran out of time and had to make a dash for the finsih as we were running out of time. Our finale saw us take a wrong turn and we both ended up getting a couple of time penalties. Andy and Paul came home with 236 Points and Dan and John with 231 although they really did the same as Paul and Andy.

Andy Shaw takes in that he only lost by one point! Andy Shaw from Adwick Tri also made an appearance and completed the quest solo and got an impressive 235 points.

The event was well organised and it was amazing how people decided on different routes and you would be at a junction and see people coming from all directions. I definately think this will not be the last trailquest we do!!!
