Map Problem
As of to-day Monday 28th we are still no nearer solving the problem of the missing maps.

If you handed in your map for recycling we thank-you & ask that you send me an email so I can order you a replacement map.

The Map itself
Urban mapping is an expensive business & having been stung the last time I decided that I had to resurvey & redraw the bits that had changed as well as create the actual maps for the event.
With Condes 9 not supporting the OCAD 12 programme each time I updated the map I had to create an OCAD 11 version & that is possibly where the error around Control 103 occurred.

I also feel that I should have set differential entry fees for those using back to back maps & single sided - will sort this next time.

Near Control 103 I did cut the bushes but either this change wasn’t saved when I saved in OCAD 11 or perhaps I eventually copied & pasted from an old Master.
