Spring 2005 event - Facts and figures

Well, it was no surprise that nearly every team visited activity base A considering it was a) right next to the start and b) had no activity so was an incredibly easy fifty points. That aside, the Wood Wide Web puzzle was visited by the most number of teams followed by the legendary Apex lawnmower racing challenge (which admittedly didn't use the lawnmower much after it broke down) and the bouncy castle jumping through hoops challenge. The team in charge of the Great Escape had the quietest evening with only 17 teams trying their activity.

Looking down the list of controls, it was number 5 which had the most visitors, despite the punch going missing and having to be replaced. Clearly most of you had trouble finding number 28 as only two teams managed it. Perhaps it was the description about the vague paths that put you off!

The tables below tell you how many teams made it to each of the main activity bases as well as the other controls.
