Special prize for diligence – David Esson who completed a course at every one of the seventeen events.
A big thankyou to all the planners who made the effort that made seventeen good night events possible. Also the behind-the scenes officials at MAROC and GRAMP who organised the series, arranged permissions, registrations etc.
Probably the most popular DNC series so far. A total of 108 people entered at least one event and 39 people did at least nine events. Please leave any comments about the format of the series, suggestions for improvements etc.
Long: 4.2 km 165m climb, 15 controls

Organiser / Planner: Sean O’Sullivan 07908 730851
Penultimate league table after 16 events. Third place in both tables still undecided.
Points table with only two events to go. Joe and Ewan have unassailable leads, and in second places Matthew and Joel will be hard to catch. Still close competition for third places.
Who won the “best course” and “toughest of tough” trophies last year? Could you either bring them to the final meal or get them to me before then. Thanks
Overall points table after 14 events:
Don’t forget last event meal and extravaganza following Sluie 21st Feb. Eating at Rock Salt and Sole in Banchory. Please send Jon a note of interest jon”at”big-jon.demon.co.uk by 14th.
They need to know by the week before so they can sort enough chairs and tables for us. (Otherwise latecomers may have to line up their cars in the Bellfield Park car park and pass the ketchup and chat along through the windows.)
Latest league table after Balmedie event:
Overall points after 11 events. I’ve given the organisers 50 points for Coull to Peter Craig – is that correct?
Overall points after 10 events. Best nine count. At present only five people on the DNC have done at least nine events, four people on the Mini-Night Cup, so still scope for some significant changes – especially once Matthew and Ewan get back from their Christmas holidays. Three people have done all ten events so far.
