Note ref Class A Results from Match Director:
It was brought to my attention that a scout was showing as an explorer on the results. Having checked the entry forms, his parents entered him as an explorer not a scout though his date of birth was that of a scout. No one picked this up until results were issued, despite squadding details being sent to leaders and parents ahead of the competition.
Having had discussions with our qualified scorer we have decided that this was a genuine error and in now way an attempt to cheat. We have therefore changed his scores to reflect his score in the scouts’ results. This unfortunately means that the published bronze medal place for scouts (Paige Baxter) is incorrect ad she had achieved 4th place.
However, in the spirit of Scouting as Match Director this year we will be issuing two bronze medals for scouts as the results for scouts had already been published. We felt that due to a genuine error the scout who had actually achieved a bronze medal should be awarded such, but that the scout who had been told she had achieved a bronze medal should not be deprived of this.
