A note from the course setter ...

I have done a rough count of the number of teams which visited each checkpoint. This came out as follows -

30, 9 31,52 32,25 33,30 34,29
40,36 41,10 42,34 43,3 44,33 45,36 46,47
50,25 51,32 52,9 53,66 54,68 55,60 56,30 57,51 58,48 59,69
60,26 61,47 62,9 63,8 64,68 65,83 66,46 67,14 68,63 69,74
70,25 71,32 72,31 73,48 74,44 75,42 76,60 77,38 78,35
80,11 81,9 82,10 83,39 84,60 85,60 86,65 87,29 88,53 89,37
90,46 91,5 92,48 93,40 94,52 95,11
100,24 101,53 102,53 103,55 104,51 105,64

Top was No 65 with 83 visits, bottom was 43 with only 3. This was less even than the remote checkpoint, number 91, which 5 teams visited . Most notable was the bias to the East side of the map, for instance, 51 teams visited the northernmost No 104. If a line is drawn passing through 102 and 101 there was only one checkpoint to the West of the line which had more than 40 visiting teams (number 92, the stone bridge). None of the top scoring 5 teams visited Heritage Park in the West (62,95,30,63) so this was obviously a wise choice to maximize a score.
