Note: there were a lot of reports of missing controls, but after the event the control pickup crew found all controls in place where they were supposed to be. There are at least two things to consider if you were in the frustrating situation of feeling like you were in the right place but not seeing the control.
1. Did you check the control description? One control description said the control was on the inside corner of a hedge. If you misread or forgot to read the description you could've been looking for it on the outside corner where you wouldn't have been able to see it.
2. During the day we see a lot farther and have sunlight for a reference direction even when we aren't really thinking about it. At night we can easily think we're looking at one map feature but we're actually looking at a similar one that's nearby. When you're not seeing the control where you expect it, carefully expand your search with an eye to being sure you're exactly where you think you are.
