Organsiser / planners comments - Rob McKenna

Many thanks for all turning up on what turned out to be a glorious sunny evening although a bit blustery.

I hope you all enjoyed this new area - thanks to Dave Caudwell for another excellent map.

I had forgotten to mention at the start that the council had cut the grass at the far end of the map near to the two depressions,which made them a bit more difficult to locate.

The local youths again played their part in proceedings vandalising a few controls on map 1 - I hope this did not spoil your runs.

It seems that one or two of the controls were a bit more difficult to locate than others as the 'kite' was obscured by either undergrowth or over hanging branches - sorry about that.

Times do look a little on the long side, but it would seem that a few competitors were caught out by the complexity of the quaried area - not your usual GNF fare.

It was interesting to watch competitors at the start picking the map up for the first time and wondering which way to go.
