FLASHMASTERS IS BACK FOR WINTER 2017
WINNERS - ROUND 1
The Flash Masters is an open bouldering competition series with a bit of a difference.
The series is made up of 5 Flash-style rounds, with 25 new problems set for each round. You'll score 10 points for each climb that you flash (complete in one attempt), 7 points for climbs that take you 2 attempts, 4 points for climbs you get in 3 attempts, and 1 point for 4 or more attempts. There will be a bonus point for reaching a certain hold in each climb (however this will only count in the event of a tie).
The competition is geared up for our everyday climbers, those who are newer to the sport or who climb for the fun of it rather than being really into training and pulling really hard - that's not to say it is not a challenge. For the most part, the problems will be set so that they don't require enormous amounts of strength or power but instead rely on tactics and technique to help get you up. Our setters will decide on a magic (secret) number for each round (a fraction of the total points available). Score over the magic number, and you will be considered too good for the comp and be crowned the coveted Flash Master! This means the person who scores immediately below magic number will take first prize.
There'll be a winner for each round of the series and an overall series winner so EVERYONE has a chance of winning something! We know it's not a prize as such, but we reckon many of you will still come and compete for the title and, to sweeten the deal, as a Flashmaster you will get two extra entries for the Flash Master series raffle!
For even more fun, each scorecard will also double up as a raffle ticket so even if you're not chuffed with your score, still hand it in at the end of the night to enter the Flash Masters raffle.
