The Norwich graticule was much more active in 2010. MagicIan was very active with 10 expeditions and Sourcerer made his debut in August eventually setting out on 15 expeditions. His last was near midnight on New Year's Eve. There were three failed expeditions. Norwich would have had more expeditions than neighbouring Cambridge if Sourcerer had been more loyal to his home graticule. He kept visiting Cambridge when the hashpoint was in the sea.
