Planner’s Comments

I had previously planned on Hound Tor for the Caddihoe Chase in 2009. On that occasion, most of the interesting areas to the west of the Becka Brook were buried in head high bracken. This time the bracken had died and I was able to use the rest of the area, though the going was still rather unpleasant in places with a lot of brambles. Choices were also somewhat limited by the boundary walls, which we had to respect. I tried to ensure that the Brown course was really a Brown, and significantly harder than the Blue. This seems to have worked, the Blue was by far the most popular course. It was good that there was a fairly large overall turnout in poor weather which had threatened to be much worse.

Organiser comments

After being moved from Newnham park area due to forestry work and possible mine subsidence just before Christmas, Cann Woods / Plym forest south was kindly offered by Forestry Commission. The mapping of this area was last revised in 2004 and therefore some quite major and small changes have been made, some forest blocks were updated but time did not permit in depth changes. Roads, tracks and paths were as marked. Both Green and Jade were set as technical as a day event, this proved challenging on a few controls. Well done to Phil and Barry on their good runs. The Orange was set to be a little more challenging with controls out of line of sight, comments were favourable.

Planner’s Comments

It was a pleasure to have a large and early turnout of competitors. People had obviously listened to the weather man predicting worsening conditions during the day. In fact we were blessed with ideal conditions in the morning – mild and still, and the rain came later than expected, when most people had gone home.
