Wessex Night League Southampton results

Firstly thanks to all that came. A great turnout. Hope you all enjoyed your run and for those of you on a first visit to this part of Southampton were surprised and challenged by the variety and the tricky little areas, especially around the old city walls. Also a great pub and good food. Now the apology - sorry that control 117 was misplaced. Anyone who went to the correct fenced enclosure and haven't got that control included in their results please email me colin.soc.hicks(at)gmail.com.

Also I received some good comments on using a percentage magenta screen instead of the spec. olive green for settlement private areas. If anyone has any thoughts on this, particularly for night event urban maps, please email me as above. My intention is to put this up for discussion with the BO Map Group.

Had to rush off afterwards, but thanks, for an entertaining outing - medieval walls, towers etc. make a change from the usual suburban estates.
