TREC GB Leucillin National Championships 2022 Arbitration Panel Report

TREC GB Leucillin National Championships 2022 Arbitration Panel Report

Following the Leucillin TREC GB National Championships 2022 held on the 13th and 14th August 2022, a formal arbitration request was received by TREC GB.

An Arbitration Panel was formed according to the process detailed on the TREC GB website, which consulted with Championship Officials and the TREC GB Rulebook 6 th Edition:

• Technical Queries, page 15, 3.8.2
• Record Card, page 26, 4.7
• Penalty points section of the Rule Book was consulted,
• Navigation Penalties cont/d, page 34, 4.15.1
• Time Penalties, page 35, 4.15.5

Arbitration panel agreed unanimously that:

  1. The 50 Map Room Penalties should be removed from the competitor’s score as we agree that they were applied in error.
  2. Lost card penalties should be applied.
    Penalties were already included for 8 out of 14 Tickets
    Penalties for an additional 6 Tickets are to be applied – 120 Penalties
  3. Results and subsequently placings for the competition are to be amended according to the updated final scores.

The Panel also wish to remind competitors that there is a process in place for querying scores during a competition, which would have been the most appropriate way to resolve this issue.

TREC GB Treasurer to step down

TREC GB Treasurer to step down

TREC GB wish to announce that our Treasurer, Vanessa Warren, who has been in place since the formation of TREC GB, has decided to step back from the role of Treasurer at the end of this membership year (September 2022).

We cannot thank Vanessa enough for her dedication to TREC GB throughout her time as Treasurer and she will be greatly missed.

We are also grateful that by giving TREC GB advance notice of her intentions, Vanessa has given us time to seek another volunteer to fill this role and will work alongside them to ensure a smooth transition during this period.

The Trustees are working with Vanessa to discuss and agree the role of any future TREC GB Treasurer and we expect to have this available by the end of April for any prospective volunteers to consider.

Once again, on behalf of the TREC GB Trustees and indeed, all of our members, I would like to thank Vanessa for being our Treasurer.

Kind Regards

Chris Paine

Chair, TREC GB

Welcome Moonrakers & South TREC Club

Welcome Moonrakers & South TREC Club

TREC GB are pleased to welcome Moonraker and South TREC Club as a probationary TREC Club from 1st October 2021.

Moonraker and South TREC Club is based in South Wiltshire and will also be developing TREC in Hampshire.

As a probationary club, over the next twelve months, Moonraker and South will need to meet all the criteria for TREC Clubs as given in the document ‘TREC GB and its Affiliated Clubs’ (link), before being confirmed as an Affiliated TREC Club.

As well as providing additional TREC in South Wiltshire, the formation of Moonraker and South will bring new opportunities to an area of England that has not been active in recent years and we wish the new club every success.

Kind Regards
