Upham’s Plantation, Woodbury C. (Night)
Devon/Cornwall Night League
Sat 6 Dec 2014
Info updated: 08th Dec
Type of event: Local-(D), Night
Type of terrain: Moorland
Excluded legs: Unfortunately control 53 was collected in after the day event, when it should have been left out as Control 7 on both the Green and Light Green courses. The control has been removed from these courses and, in the interests of fairness, the times taken on the leg to the new control 7 have been deducted. Alan Simpson, SI Lead
A few brave souls turned out for this event (8). I had lots of support from my trusty helpers and after an excellent day event this was a way of extending into the night event. I would like to thank all my helpers and hope everyone enjoyed another Devon League event. Please support the other night events on 24th January and 14th February 2015. Tim Gent, Organiser

Explanation of colour courses
- White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
- Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
- Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
- Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
- Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
- Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
- Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
- Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
