18/02/2012 Swinemoor Winter Event

This was a welcome return to Swinemoor after a 30 year break. Rob Tooze put a night event on here when it was lake like. The colour map with trees marked clearly was an added aid to navigation. Ponds and ditches were the main sources of locating control markers. Neil Harvatt produced the map in his spare time (how does he find it?). Thanks to Neil for this map of a new area for the people of Beverley and us stalwarts who travel miles to exercise in the wonderful outdoors.

As can be seen from the results we had a reasonable turn out on a blustery day.

Bella led the White by 2 minutes; Family Applegate on the Yellow pipped the Haskins Family. However, Philip Haskins took revenge on the Orange with a clear lead of 12 minutes. Matthew Williams was snapping at the heels of Tony Chapman who won by a mere 93 seconds.

A big thank you to the helpers Paul Simmons, Mary C., Mark Tyska, Ken Hutson, Matthew, Brian & Neil.
