Officials' Comments

Organiser - John Collyer jcollyer48@btinternet.com

Thanks to all our helpers, plus the major officials (Paul Lowe and Chris Sellens) in helping the event go smoothly. My plea for help elicited responses from the "usual suspects" so I was confident about how things would run. Perhaps we should be encouraging newer, less-familiar members to staff some of the jobs. Most teams could function very well as long as an experienced member was given overall charge.

Planner - Chris Sellens

Firstly many thanks to all of you who attended, and to those who helped out in making this event a success (approx. 150 runners). Thank you. I would also like to express my gratitude to Paul who was a very understanding controller.

I fool heartedly agreed to plan this event back in October and shortly afterwards forgot about it, that was until new years day when Paul asked if I had any courses for him to look at. I instantly replied I did and would let him have them shortly. Then panic set in!!! I rushed in planning some courses that were quite honestly; rubbish and too long (the blue was 9.5km!!!). However, after some prompting and guidance in the right direction the courses were improved and I hope we were able to give you some courses which were enjoyable and not too brambly.

Once again thank you for attending.

Controller - Paul Lowe (Suffoc)

When it got to Christmas and I still hadn't been sent any courses, I thought Chris was probably working on them. So when I saw him at the new years day event, I asked when he would be sending them to me (the look on his face sort of gave the game away). They'll be with you by the weekend he said. Well they duly turned up with a yellow course that was a very long white and a blue that was only 500m short of black.

After some recommendations (one of which was to read the guidelines) he came back with courses that were much better, and which, with a bit of tweaking here and there, were the courses you all ran. He did very well to keep you all from being permanently stuck in bramble and mud. All comments I heard were favourable.

I must apologise for the unusual symbol (lake) on the control descriptions. I hadn't realised that IOF sheets were being used and concentrated on the written descriptions.

On the organisation front all went smoothly under John's co-ordination. It is nice to have a building for download instead of a cold tent with the drone on a generator nearby. The showers seemed to get good use too.

One thing that must be said is that ALL competitors MUST report to download after finishing or retiring. This prevents the officials from having to think about sending out search parties when there is one runner still showing as not downloaded and had started quite some time earlier.

See you in the Forest
