Officials' Comments

Organiser's report - Colin West colin@grovehillhouse.wanadoo.co.uk

Future planners in the club will be pleased to know that Martin took the time to prepare an Idiots' Guide to SI Use in Planning during his tussle with the hardware and software for this event.

His move from Planner to Controller came late in the scheme of things, but he and Chris were able to work well together to deliver the event on the day.

I must mention in these despatches the marvellous matrix start box erected by Jack and Dave, which enabled the flow of Championship competitors to be unimpeded whilst imposing the mandatory four-minute break between runners from the same club or school. Also, on the subject of the Start, thanks to Barnardiston pupils for their (as usual) exemplary conduct while queuing for their runs.

And of course thanks to the other helpers for their reliably stalwart efforts at Download, Registration, String Course and Enquiries.

I would be interested to hear from anyone who has tried managing entries at an event using the BOF or EA members' database. There is a lot of duplication of effort that appears unnecessary, and adds to the burden of the volunteer helpers - can we do it more easily?

Finally congratulations to the individual medal winners in the East Anglian Schools' Championships, and to Barnardiston, the winning team.

Planners's report - Martin and Chris Sellens

In retrospect it wasn’t such a good idea to volunteer to plan an event in the middle of examination marking period. However, it’s difficult to say “no” when the event is at your place of work and you have updated the map through several editions. Despite a revision only a year ago, I’d have to admit that the map is far from perfect. The University the grounds staff will insist on chopping stuff down and Estates seem intent on covering the entire area in concrete and rearranging the furniture like a demented houseperson. Even Wivenhoe Woods is in a constant state of flux, with rampant coppicing and what appears to be a local plate tectonics hot-spot that has stretched out some bits and compressed others since the last remapping. Anyway, we hope you didn’t notice too much the deficiencies of the map and that you had an enjoyable run. Wivenhoe Park and Woods may not offer very challenging orienteering, but with grazing marshes, salt marsh, close cropped grass, fast open parkland, muddy mixed woodland and suburban street O for the adventurous, at least there is plenty of variety. On the basis of our planning/controlling experience we have formulated a few cautionary rues for casual event planners intent on leaving everything until the last possible minute.

  1. The map will be a lot worse than you think.
  2. It will take you twice as long to plan the courses as you expect.
  3. Even if you know the area like the back of your hand you can’t put out more than 15 controls in an hour.
  4. If you put a control more than 10m from the centre of the circle, Bert Park will notice.

Incidentally, congratulations to the winners of the EAOA Schools Champs and the ESSOL schools league, and many thanks to Paul Lowe for presenting the trophies, Colin and his team for seamless organisation on the day and Julie Laver for the brilliant job that she does with the ESSOL results. Have a good summer!
