That sounds pretty harsh. Sorry.
I would certainly stick by the suggestion that instead of inserting the middle tredge piece when it's easy to insert wings instead. Not only because midges (is that the correct terminology?) are always easy to insert regardless of their orientation, but you also...
I see the cross tredge stage as the least efficient step of Hoya and IMO freeslice is better than AVG (at least for me) which is why I consider it to be true.
For me the reason I'm doing Hoya is to skip cross, which was always awful for me, and to make the freeslice step easier to find...

Where have 2 of the last 6 comps been held? Manchester.
A 3rd in Cambridge.
This is not a UKCA issue. It's an issue with...

Exeter Central St David's.
Get in quick while it's still cheap I guess.
