Controller’s Comments

The nice bits of Chalkney were even nicer than they were for the Stragglers Relays in July, but the grotty bits were just as grotty. At least it wasn’t so wet this time! Geoff did well to help you avoid the worst bits and managed to set a challenging Blue course in the small area available. Times were shorter than expected on the White course (maybe more of the Barnardiston people are ready to move up to Yellow), and longer than expected on the Orange and Light Green (perhaps some of the Schools League people need more experience?) but you all seemed to enjoy yourselves. Thanks for coming.

Planner’s Comments

When I first walked around Chalkney surveying control sites I was uninspired by the extensive brambles and several areas of impenetrable undergrowth. These were written off in favour of the more pleasant sections of the wood which gave long legs where I was aiming for route choice and some short, technical legs. It was interesting to watch competitors making decisions and I was pleased to see many taking the intended routes through the wood. Thank you for the positive comments at the finish. It makes all the effort and time spent planning the courses that much more worthwhile. Firstly, I would like to thank Steve for his efforts as organiser. I felt that Steve coped admirably when we had to switch to an alternative parking scheme. Thanks also to Tom Collins, and John and Jenny Collyer for collecting in controls; to Andrew for his helpful comments as controller; and finally to my son Jonathan for his input as assistant planner on the White and Yellow courses and for his help putting out the controls in the pouring rain. Orienteering is a sport for all. You can enjoy it equally speeding round the Blue course or walking the Orange in a small group looking at the wood and having a "picnic" as three youngsters were when I came across them. They were having wonderful time!

Organiser’s Comments

Everyone seemed to enjoy Geoff’’s courses finding a good balance between challenge and runnability. My thanks to him for his thorough preparation including a useful discussion about alternative parking arrangements. Talk about crystal balls!, A big thankyou to all the Stragglers who helped so willingly on the day in very poor conditions, for their patience while alternative parking was arranged and for their helpful suggestions (no, really!) while I was gently panicking. Last but not least to Clive Tant for towing me out of the mud otherwise I might be there now. Well done everyone helpers and competitors whose good spirits really made the day.
