Tump Hall of Fame

Adrian Rayner

Six new members entered the Tump Hall of Fame in 2015 to make 36 in total that are over the 2000 minimum threshold. One Tumper with initials RHW did 1052. This is the first time for a thousand to be surpassed, although five others managed over 500 during the year.

Tumping by counties continues to grow in popularity and seriousness and included two Cumbria completions with its 696 Tumps. A significant event was the identification for the first time of the 352 Tumps within the traditional boundaries of Yorkshire. I believe that this provides a worthy challenge to those born within the county.

Islands continue to be picked off, often getting their first recorded log on Progress was made in both Scotland and in Wales, where access is more limited than north of the border.

The Google group Tump Forum grew in size and the amount of relevant information. One of the new members on joining summarised the postings as a wealth of information, humour and amazing exploits. A good summary of the Tumping world.
