Gracefield, 9 May 2018
Time 3hrs, 100% dark, 78 participants.
Course planner and team.
Perfect conditions saw a great turnout of 80 competitors keen to explore some of beautiful Lower Hutt. The harder tracks of the Haywards Reserve as well as the track to control 61 gave some teams trouble. Control 91 proved unpopular only being successfully found by 1 team. The door at control 52 had been freshly repainted so all teams claiming this were awarded the points. All other controls were found by at least 1 team, so no other claims were awarded.
A great effort from all participants. See some of the routes on Strava.
An admin note from the webmster. Heard that some teams were disappointed to be missing from the pre-reg list. We download the list in the evening two days prior, in order to submit the printing before shut-eye. Pretty sure no-one was missing who entered 48hrs prior. If the website is misbehaving we'd be glad to look into it:-))

Tawa, 25 Apr 2018
Time 3hrs, 100% dark, 27 participants.
Following the postponement on the 11th of April - due to the storm that included lightning and hail, instead we enjoyed almost perfect conditions - a calm cool night with little cloud cover.
Despite the reduced numbers of participants only the three controls west of the motorway did not get visited by at least one team, and the controls of top of Colonial Knob were visited by two teams. A great effort from all participants.
See some of the routes on Strava Flybys.
Control 100 proved difficult to approach from the west, due to difficulty following the western end of fence line in the dark. One team made a claim for 90 which five other teams successfuly found so claim not accepted.
