Congratulations to Carol Pearce, DEVON Club Champion 2015, who can be seen receiving her trophy. Also shown below are Andy Reynolds (Planner) together with Nicholas Maxwell (Controller). Ben Chesters (pictured) achieved the distinction of finding all the controls in precisely 60:00 minutes -and he was sprinting at the end! The final photograph shows Ann Hughes running in to the finish, who was in joint 2nd place together with Jill Green.
