1 Wessex Motor Club 2013

2 What is a scatter? Collection of points (called route checks [RCs]) “scattered” over the map. You are provided with clues which, when solved, give the location of these points. You are also given a sheet with a simple question for each point. Once you've solved some clues, go to those places and answer the questions to prove you were there.

3 An official that you should try to visit during a particular time slot You are given their location You should do your best to manage this as: They will give you some more clues You are awarded 10 points for each one you visit Control Marshals

4 Extra details Some RCs are worth more – usually those further away or with harder clues. Choose your route carefully – lots of tactics! You must be at the finish on time, otherwise you are disqualified. Aim to be a little early just in case you get stuck behind a Nissan Micra doing 20mph on your way to the finish...

5 A map and 'romer' (available at the start) A pencil (and probably a rubber...) Some way to tell the time (watch, phone, in-dash clock...) A torch (to find the answers at dark RCs) You will need:

6 Useful extras... Map board Clipboard Calculator?!

7 Basic approach to a first event Turn up and sign on. Receive final instructions and an answer sheet Plot things you know like locations of Control Marshals, Start, Finish etc. Check watch... Event starts!

8 First event started! Solve and plot as many clues as you want. Begin with the easiest Do not spend more than minutes on this. Drive! Hopefully arrive at a correct RC location Get out and have a hunt for the answer to the question

9 Tips for first timers! Get to both control marshals Don't spend ages looking for answers at RC's Establish a clear way of marking RC's Get to the finish on time!!!

10 Any questions?

11 12 Car Rally - The Basics  You will need exactly the same stuff as for a Scatter: Map and map board Pencils and rubbers Roamer Torch for navigator Time telling device  BUT this time there is a fixed route rather than a choice of points.  You need to get to certain points along a certain route within a certain time.

12 How the event works:  Each Car (up to 12) set off on their own minute  Have to get to Time Control (TC) at your time  At each TC get more nav  Crew with least minutes and fails WINS

13 Timing Sheets  Show what time you should arrive at each TC  Marshall marks your actual arrival time  Can be a maximum of 30 minutes late at a TC  Allowed to make up a set amount of time on each section

14 Fails and Minutes  Every minute you drop, counts to your end score  Make-up time, exceeding = 1Fail  Missing TC = 3 Fails  Wrong direction to TC = 1 Fail  Open Envelope = 1 Fail

15 Code Boards  Found along the route  Correct order earns no fails  Left side of the road  Long-way-round triangles
