Results of Ted's Huatoki

The best thing about the day was that it didn't rain (Ted has been plagued by rainy events for the past couple of years!). He set us a real challenge on the Huatoki map, making use of a lot of the hills and an equal number of the valleys so there was plenty to discuss afterwards. Thanks for setting the event Ted.
