Officials' Comments

Organisers report - Lyn West

Organising this event was interesting. When Jack (our fixtures sec) was looking for an organiser, my thought processes went something like this – I’m free that weekend, I’ve organised at Roman Valley before, I’ve worked with Martin before and know we have the same style – last minute! So yes, I’ll do that one. What I failed to consider was that I would only have one day at home in April prior to the event – the previous Thursday so that is probably why I failed to arrange my customary sunshine.

Fortunately I had the presence of mind to order the toilet (I hope you appreciated the convenience – the senior charge was increased by £1 to help towards the cost) and Email SOS members for help before departing to Canada on my skiing holiday. As usual, SOS members came up trumps and I had plenty of offers of help. Thank you to all those who helped and to those who approached me on the day with offers that weren’t needed. This support really does make an organisers life easier. I don’t think there were any major glitches. It was just a shame that the turnout was low for an EAGAL event. Now back to the pile of dirty ski gear!

Controller’s Comments - Clarissa Napier (NOR)

Roman Valley is unique in East Anglia. The variety in the type of terrain makes for interesting orienteering, particularly as it all looks so simple on the surface. I got off my bearing more than once while checking controls in the open and then had trouble relocating. The map had been much improved for this event which made course planning more straightforward and my job much simpler. Martin’s courses needed very little input, just the odd change of an East for a West and an extra control on the White.

We could perhaps have hung No.125 a little higher in the pit, but in mitigation the control was only 5 to 10 metres from good attack points on paths, like junctions and sharp bends… And I found it when it was only tape!

Many thanks to SOS for their usual excellent organisation, and sorry, but none of us were responsible for the weather.
