How quickly are event reports released online, after the event?
Expect to see the reports online between 2 and 3 days after the event.
Come back and check soon if you can't see them already.
MBO Score - What if I can't find the control?
Are you sure you are in the correct location?
OK you are in the right location. These events are about getting to the control location, finding the electronic punch is proof you have been there.
However if the control has been stolen, miss placed or is difficult to find due to a poor control description, then do not search for it.
Follow the control description, if the control is not there note the control number and report it as soon as you finish. Failure to notify the organiser when you finish means you will not be credited with the control.
The organiser will check if the control was correctly described and located. If it is not you will be awarded the points.
Remember, just because other people found the control it does not mean the control is correctly placed or described.
Even if the control is within 5m of the described point you will be awarded the points. These are not hunt the punch events, they are navigation events.
