Was there actually an overgrown track where the control was meant to be or was it just bush? Tash says it was just bush. Duncan's trace shows him going through where the track should be (twice!) and out the other side and then looping around the southern track before stumbling across the CP location on the eastern track. Richard M says the control was in the correct spot because he collected it (none of the three traces I saw - including his - confirms this) and both he and Richard B got lucky and took the eastern fork and found the control.

If there is no track then I'll remove it from the master map. I've downgraded the southern single track to difficult because it looked pretty rubbish from what I saw when I rode past it (Richard B's trace of him attempting to ride it seems to indicate as such too) and I didn't even see it from the western end.

I'll also remove the track south of your #13 because that doesn't exist anymore either.

The track is there its just hard to see with that bush growing randomly in the clear area.

Unfortunately my garmin turned off somewhere around the course, so i have no idea what distance i covered. I think the mapboard was slipping on my handlebars and rotated back thus knocking the stop button.

Check the map near our ctrl 4 as the green overgrown track that exists near the log block has the track obscured by the green.

I don't know what Duncan did with his GPS but his trace only commences after #6.

Your #4 was my #6 and I know the track that the control was on seems to continue north then west. I didn't even see the track to the NE (the one covered by logs and green) but then I wasn't really looking for it. This was one that was corrected by Eddie either on the map itself or on PurplePen because he didn't have OCAD, which is why it looks a bit weird on the map. I've since updated it on OCAD (you can see the outcome on Livelox through Eventor).
