Ant made the decision early on, I'm told. Not sure why. I guess it will have avoided any discussions with controller or mapper. Entry was high so not surprised to hear control load was heavy.

Good so see you both on Saturday.

Interesting. When I planned here in Jan 2019 we used 15 trees, reduced from an initial 21 to appease the RSPB. Not using any would definitely have made planning good courses more challenging.

Good to see you (briefly) too, and glad to see you back in the results for last night.

Yeah, maybe it was to pre-empt any discussions with the RSPB.

Last night was a success as far as the injury was concerned but, for several rasons, I had trouble reading the map. Navigated to 11 instead of 9, quite well, it turned out, then had fun trying to find the ditch crossing.

Ant Squire:
Just catching up on post event discussions.
As I mentioned in the final details, I decided fairly early on not to use the dead trees, as telling the difference between living and dead in winter is pretty tricky, plus it means that the controls are fairly obviously located.
Control count was low as there aren't many other features, plus an attempt to make more manageable from control hanging/ collecting logistics.
