The Big Trig 2015 - Eastbourne

Here are the results, checked for maths and claims. Asterisks signify a change from the provisionals. Control 41 allowed as a significant proportion had trouble with it, see details below the table. Some brilliant performances, eg The Epics getting within 60pts of the max. The family teams Teesdale, Faulkner and Boggleberry Bashers can be pretty pleased too, bet there's no trouble with bed-time tonight!

Result of claims. As advised Q&A controls are rarely completely perfect and we used "democracy" to decide. of course we can make mistakes in the  adjustments too, quite happy to "enter into correspondence" over these.

  • 10 Both 10 and 11 steps OK, a possible ambiguity
  • 20 Both O and Z OK, there are possibly several baitline markers here
  • 21 149, 153 and 157 OK, this must be a very mosaical neighbourhood
  • 22 Both 6 and 12 OK (but those replying 12 might reconsider any plans to become a lawyer)
  • 30 Not allowed for 1 team, 13 teams got it
  • 31 Not allowed for 1 team, 13 teams got it
  • 40 Wrong answer for 1 team, 6 teams got it
  • 41 Allowed. 4 teams out of 9 had trouble, that suggests it was a poor control
  • 47 Not allowed for 5 teams, 15 teams got it
  • 54 Not allowed for 1 team, 11 teams got it
  • 55 Wrong answer for 1 team, 23 teams got it
