Organsiser / planner - Rob McKenna
Many thanks for turning up and supporting this event.
The weather appeared to be fine until the first competitor turned up, then it went downhill from there.
In the end it wasn't pleasant at all - cold, wet and windy.
I am not sure if the long times were due to the weather, the new (to some) area, or the complexity of the punching system.
I do have a few apologies - firstly the use of the personal punch was a last minute decision due to the wet weather
and hadn't really been thought through. Secondly the medium course should really have done map 1 & 2, which would have
made it a bit shorter, thirdly some of the medium competitor control cards were wrongly marked due to the previous remark
and lastly some of the lettering at the control sites was a little bit difficult to read (this was done in a bit of a hurry
to try to avoid vandalism).
I hope this didnt spoil your enjoyment of what I think is a small gem of an area and hope you will return here when we
get some better weather.
Thanks to Dave Caudwell for stepping to help out with the start and finish - I am afraid he missed some of the split times
as he could not identify some of the 'new' faces as they came into the map exchange.
If you know your split times for these legs or feel that your times are wrong then please let me know.
