The sun shone, the midge was fairly tame and Daves courses appeared to be just about right.
Starting on the top was dictated to by parking requirements and although this did give some spectacular views,
it inevitably affected the courses. The fast downward start for most courses ended with a bit of an uphill slog to get
back to the finish, but following Daves warning, most competitors seemed to have chosen the right course.
The area is technically quite hard for some of the shorter courses with the lack of paths and only the boundary
fence and plantation fence to 'hem' the juniors in.
Once the trees in the main plantation near to the start have been given time to get established, this will affect the nature of the area
and make planning a bit simpler. The main valley (which most competitors didn't get into) is fairly gentle in comparison to the start area.
The restrictions of the fenced area didn't allow us to expand the courses that way. 
Parking for the competition had been a big problem ever since the event was first put into the fixture list.
Fortunately the poor turn out didn't really test the organisers skills to the full and we seemed to manage.
Unusally for the EMIT system, one of the controls (033) failed to register - this affected the following courses - brown (#9), blue (#5).
Split times for those legs have had to be combined, sorry if this affected your run in any way.
