New Year's Novelty Event
Castle Park, Colchester
Monday 1st January, 2007
Final Results


Organiser/Planner's Comments - Andrew Cordle

I called the event "Twist and Shout" to give the Experts some clue as to what I had done to their map, and because I expected some mild verbal abuse when they discovered it was printed as a mirror-image. Its always a challenge to think of new novelty aspects for the New Years Day event, especially to keep competent, fit orienteers running and thinking for 45 minutes in a small, non-technical area where we can't use electronic punching. On the other hand, the area is excellent for beginners.

Congratulations to Chris for winning the Expert course, and the Wheezlies? for winning the Novice course. The handicapping seemed to be reasonably fair, although the juniors were disadvantaged on the expert course.

Producing the results has reminded me of the advantages of using Registration Slips and electronic punching. If I've mis-spelled your name, changed your age or sex, or calculated your score incorrectly, please let me know (a reminder of the rules is here). Those of you shown in the results without a club name will be interested to know that by joining a club you can get a £2 discount on senior entry fees at most events in the region, as well as the club newsletter. SOS membership details are here.

Thanks for coming. Wasn't the weather glorious? Thanks also to Colchester Borough Council for the use of the park, the Collyers for extending the map and providing the control markers, and to Steve and Chris for help in collecting in the controls.
