DUNCOMBE PARK PLANNERS REPORT
Results are here
This year’s NYMBO event in association with Eborienteers’ White Rose event was again in the
Helmsley area; the course covered a similar area to last year’s event at the White Rose with a slight shift to the South to include the area south of the River Rye. This year we were fortunate to have the event centre in t1he grounds of Duncombe Park, giving plenty of scope for route choice from the Start and back to the Finish, but unfortunately it meant an uphill finish which ever direction you came from.
Judging by comments at the finish everyone enjoyed the event, I heard one rider had a issue with one of the farmers, I went into the estate office on Tues they apologised and said all of the tenants were informed about our event; regarding #49 that went missing this was on FC land so I’ll let them know as about it, anyone that visited the control will have been credited with the points if you told Dave at download.
Thanks to Tim for producing the map and drawing on all the tracks in the forests and on the
Duncombe Park Estate land, I didn’t ask Tim to highlight the B/W in the SE corners of the map as I thought they were clear enough?
Hope you all enjoyed the event, thanks to Dave & Steve for manning Registration and Download,
And thanks to you all turning up and making the event worthwhile.
Thanks to Jeff Harris for an excellent course enjoyed by 61 riders in another beautiful part of North Yorkshire. It was very disappointing to hear that #49 had gone missing but hopefully it didn’t spoil your ride and I have given everyone the points. Please let me know if there are any mistakes in the results. Apologies to Michael Connor who was forced to turn round by a gamekeeper at #36. This shouldn’t have happened so he has been credited with the time he lost and I hope no-one else had the same problem. The landowner had given permission to use this track so I will let him know.
Our next event is in Swaledale on SUNDAY 23rd September. Hope to see you there.
