Orange | Green | Blue | Split times

First of all, apologies for the 1:15,000 map … not a great scale to try and decipher fine detail by the light of a fading torch! Unfortunately, it was all we had left in the map box. And on the subject of boxes, SportIdent box 204 decided to pack in and go for an early shower. This was control 2 on Blue and control 6 on Orange if you are puzzling over your split times.
I was delighted to see the number of youngsters who came along to participate. Many took on a fairly technical Orange course, which in retrospect perhaps I should have made a bit easier. However, everybody finished the course and there were only three retirements in total. One involved a team containing Nigel Beasant … so they never stood a chance anyway!
Many thanks to Dave Bramley who came all the way up from Swindon to help with the controls and for acting as an impromptu controller.

Like Jon I was surprised and pleased by the number of family groups taking part; the sound of small children enjoying being frightened by the dark I assume to be quite unusual at most Night League events. The numbers were also gratifying, given the hassle of organising even such a basic C4. My thanks to Jon for his usual efficiency and appalling sense of humour, to Tim Palmer and helpers for making the computing bits work so well, and to Steve Ingleby for running the start rather longer than expected, despite being back in the forest at the crack of dawn hanging controls for Sunday's Club Champs.
