Event Report

It turned out to be a hot day for the Dover hills, many people opted for the gentler option of enjoying the view from the top of the ridge and not venturing too far down the slopes.

Thanks to those who helped collect controls and also those who had offered but were not needed.

Control 40 appeared to be misbehaving but looking at the results it seemed to have registered, let me know if you think the results are wrong.
