Thank you to everyone who ventured to Banbury in the deep south on a what was a glorious but hot evening. Spiceball Park being a small and compact area presented some planning challenges, especially as the area on the south of the map was unusable as it has been developed since first mapped and for which it was not possible to re-map in time. There were also areas of rough open which were already too overgrown to use when we had our planning trips.
Nevertheless it seemed that those doing the two easier courses – including a large contingent of Girl Guides - enjoyed themselves and we managed to present some interest to those undertaking green. With most of the terrain not lending itself to technically difficult navigation, on green the intention was to reward quick and accurate route choice by presenting options where possible. Again comments appeared positive although in retrospect the final sequence of controls from 19 to 22 were more challenging than we anticipated – probably not helped that a crucial tarmac path and a track were not quite as clear on the map as they perhaps could have been coupled with significant additional nettle growth since our planning trips. Apologies to all who battled their way around those controls.
Thank you to Frances, James and Oliver King for running registration and download, John Bowman, Sue Bicknell and Jill Emmerson for collectively being Karin for the evening and general help, to Andy Emmerson for minor map corrections and updates and to James and Oliver (again) and Lin and Steph for helping collect in the controls.
