The fifth event of this year's mid-week Spring Series.
Fearnoch welcomed us with fine Spring weather and just-in-time courses courtesy of Ross Lilley. (He placed the last control thirty minutes before the first start time; thanks, Ross).
As usual for mid-week events, the Junior turnout was low, but the adult score course was well supported and fiercely contested, apart from Tom who strolled round all controls, G & T in one hand, cigar in the other.
Quite a few of us underestimated our ability to reach the finish within the cut-off time of sixty minutes.
