Map: LIDAR based and remapped 2015 by Philip Gristwood. 1:10,000 printed on A4 size waterproof paper. No legend on the map. Control descriptions will be on the map only.
Explanation of Score courses
You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.
Seniors £4, Juniors £1, SI dibber hire £1.
Please email ditchi56-bof <at> yahoo.co.uk so that we can estimate map numbers. Four volunteer control collectors also required (to pick up 5 controls each).
