Organiser/Planner/Controller's Comments - John Hateley

Bickerton Hill … great area, shame the map is getting so long in the tooth. There were so many map corrections, I gave up on master maps and went for the pre-marked option. So we still have hundreds of copies of the thing left over!

I tried to make the Blue and Green pretty technical in places, but the Orange was harder than I wanted. Control 6 (the pit on the spur) was invisible from the path and had no obvious attack point, causing the controller to have a bit of a panic as night fell. The planner reluctantly agreed to put some tape nearby on the path to guide runners in.

The organiser wishes to thank Dave Morris of the National Trust, Ali Ingleby for helping on the night, anybody who helped with the SportIdent software … and the local resident for driving the exhausted (battery) competitor back to the car-park!
