Planner/Organiser Comments It's often a bit disheartening to put on a minor or low key event, especially at night, and find that you get a very low key turnout. Today was no such thing -- thank you to everyone who came, and I hope you felt it was worth the journey -- all the way from Huddersfield and from York in a couple of cases.

So good was the turnout, in fact, that my estimate of map and C-D numbers needed was slightly low. Thank you again for your patience, and especially to those who gave in their map to be recycled. I also found it very heartening that people seemed perfectly happy to do all the registering, etc, themselves, and happy to fall in with a start system so obviously open to abuse. Thank you for making my job easier.

It's interesting to report, however, that some of these scrupulously honest people think it perfectly within the rules to have a guess at the answers to puzzle-O controls that they haven't been anywhere near!! No names will be mentioned, but I'm almost certain that at least 2 people gained a place in the results by these means! Town park 'O' is very un-technical and rewards the out-and-out runners, providing they don't then hesitate and fumble at the controls. I suspect we had a number of tortoises keeping up with hares today. I hope you had a moment's indecision over some of the route choices, although to be honest the differences would probably have made little difference to your time.

If your fumbling was due to Control 46 going missing at about 11.20, I apologise. It had been deliberately hidden - buried under the leaves in front of its proper position, as I found when I tripped over it at 1.00. I ought to have had the equipment and back-up to replace it, but I had assumed Berry Hill kids had more sense and better things to do. I must apologise too for the extra control which crept onto the Yellow map. I think it cost Tom a minute or two, but I don't think it cost him a place.
