Organisers comments - Dave Caudwell
First of all, apologies for the 2 errors on the Blue course, one of which was also on the Green.
The first was a simple transcription error where 108 appeared as 106 on the Blue description sheet. Of course, this shouldn’t happen,
but to many of you this didn’t seem to be a problem. After all, you’d navigated to the W side of a spur top, had seen a bit of a thicket
alongside it, and the pit was the right depth. There were no other pits on the map in that part of the area, so although the number was wrong,
what else could it be but the correct control?
At 102 (another pit on both Blue and Green) a complete mix up had occurred in my mind about this control, and full details of  this can be found
by following this link. The control was found by an early competitor in another pit 50m to the N and put at the correct place
(although there was no pit at the site!), so later competitors should have found it alright, but were no doubt confused by the lack of a 2m deep hole there!
These two errors show the problems inherent with a C5 event where there is no controller, and the organiser/planner is overly familiar with the area.
If it had been a C4 or above, any controller would have spotted the errors in no time at all. As the event is a C5, there is nothing to be gained by
voiding the courses, but I have decided that as a result of the problems, no colour badge times will be awarded for this event on the Blue and Green courses.
I’m the planner of 3 more events in the early part of 2006, but all these events have controllers!

Thanks are due to Andy Niven of Durham County Council Countryside Section for permission to use the area,
and to all the NN helpers who performed their tasks much better than I did on what was a bitterly cold day.
