Officials' Comments

Organiser's Comments - Hilary Sellens

Many thanks to all those people who helped on the day. My special thanks to Martin who took over organising on the day, everyone's help was much appreciated. All competitors who were affected by the two vandalised controls: numbers 133 and 120 will of course be reinstated. Apologies if it affected your run but as you saw Hockley Woods is a very busy area enjoyed by many different people so it is always difficult to safe guard the controls.

Planner's Comments - Geoff Pye

Firstly a huge thank you to Jeff Powell-Davis who spent the summer re-mapping Hockley Woods. I hope everyone agrees that he did an excellent job making sense of the numerous paths created by the dog walkers, the vegetation changes due to the coppicing and the brambles which have grown to man eating proportions this summer.

The longer courses had rather a large number of controls; this was a deliberate ploy to keep you in the good bits of the wood and seems to have worked judging by your comments at the finish. I hope that those on the blue course enjoyed my sense of humour with the spectator control. I certainly enjoyed watching many of you go through it and then seeing how accurate, or not, you were on your direction to the next control. Hockley does offer a challenge to the unwary.

I hope nobody had a run that was too compromised by the mindless vandalism that we had on three controls. They were replaced as soon as possible and anyone shown as mis-punched on 120 and 133 were placed as correct punches for these controls. 117 was moved 200m and thrown in a holly bush. Thanks to the competitor who saw the control and stood it up, it meant we did not lose this box. Apologies to those who saw it and cursed the planner believing he placed 2 controls in ditches 50m apart!

Thanks to Paul Beckett for controlling. As ever he was meticulous in his job and he made many excellent suggestions which allowed an improvement to the courses.

This was my first time planning using OCAD. It took time in the beginning to learn the basics of the programme but it really is fantastic for allowing quick changes to the courses and for taking the worry out of matching control descriptions to the map of the course.

Finally thanks to Kevin Machin for printing the maps and putting the extra important text on them that I did not know how to do! To Jonathan for carrying the stakes and flags to strategic parts of the wood so that I could quickly put the controls out and to all those who brought the controls in for me.

Controller's Comments - Paul Beckett (HAVOC)

I would like to congratulate SOS for a well run event. The organisation seemed to run smoothly and Geoff's courses were as challenging as the area would allow and more challenging than many competitors expected.
