Thanks for all coming along. Hope you enjoyed a new map. Congratulations to Adam for almost clearing all the controls - a clear moral victory, despite the vagaries of the scoring system giving Leon on a 45 minute run being the overall top scorer. Leon and I are greed that next year we will reduce the points bonus that the 45 minute runners receive. Maybe from 33% to 25%.
Maurice the planner, was unfortunately on domestic duties 350 miles away. It was good to hear your positive comments about his course. Apologies that neither of us had picked up on the unmapped snicket near the start. When I had surveyed the area I had checked it out, but it appeared inaccessible, being at the time totally bocked by substantial vegetation right up to the Football Club fence.
