Like last year the weather was kind to us – a mild 8c with occasional weak bursts of sun.
Congratulations to Harold Wyber of CHIG (M35) for placing first this year. He whizzed round all the controls in 52.26 minutes, 28 seconds quicker than second place Nick Barrable of SYO (M45). Fastest woman was Laura Parkes of HH (W21) who scored 470 points.
As last year, the Boxing Day event attracted many younger competitors. Luke Bennett of DFOK (M16), who also visited all the controls in time, and Tegan Frampton of HH (W18), provided the top performances, amassing 610 and 450 points respectively.

Thanks to Neil Gostick of HH for planning the course and to Ronan & Julie Cleary (LOK) for controlling the event, organising permissions and presiding over the mass start. Thanks are also due to Kevin and Laura Parkes (HH) for organising the IT without a hitch. Thanks are also due to the duo of first aiders Hedley Calderbank and Mike Bennett of HH who, between them, provided continuous coverage.
Once again we are grateful for the co-operation of Southgate Hockey Club, Bridge Security and Berkeley Homes for parking permission. The latter is responsible for the upmarket new housing development in the centre of the park on the site of what was most recently a campus of Middlesex University.
Finally, many hands made light work. Ben Gostick, Ian Byford, Sébastien Flesch, Tim Bywater-Lees assisted Neil in putting out the controls and the Flick family, Yen Nguyen, the Hodsons, Laura Parkes and Danny Figg collected them in afterwards.
See you all again next year!
Catherine Galvin (LOK)
