Day of the Event
As a result of the number of entries, it has been decided to stage the event on one day, Sunday 25th January.

1.       Men’s Combined (incorporating Physical + Vision categories)
2.       Open Intellectual (linking male and females entrants)
3.       Women’s Physical
Times during day of the Event
To complete the event, 5 time slots are required, staggered over 1 ½ hour intervals. In an effort to enhance the atmosphere and have all division finish at about the same time (bearing in mind 2 division only need 3 time slots), the commencing times of each division vary slightly, as per below;
