Officials' Comments

Organiser's report - Dave Skinner dave.skinner@btinternet.com

Not unsurprisingly I received tremendous support in carrying my role, and send a big thank you to Paul Beckett (HAVOC) and Kevin Machin for their pre-event advice and their considerable planning and controlling efforts, and to my willing and flexible band of helpers (too many to name here) who were all brilliant. I also thank Rochford District Council who supported this event by giving their permission for use Hockley Woods.

Thankfully the weather on the day was dry and sunny. It was rewarding that the numbers taking part were some 30% up on previous entry levels at Hockley, and particularly pleasing that there were a good number of newcomers to the sport - we very much hope to see you again at our future events and activities. Thank you all for coming. I heard nothing but positive comments on the day - well done to all concerned.

Planner's report - Kevin Machin

Thanks to everyone who turned out in such splendid weather and well done to all the people who came for the first time. Thank you for all the kind comments. Following a harsh winter and a recent dry spell the woods were at their best. The brambles on the bulk of the map were very low and all the tracks were dry. Perfect! We did have a couple of glitches with a failed control box and a slightly (?) wrong control code on one of the last controls, but hopefully they did not adversely affect you. Some of the times were a bit on the high side, but hopefully you were just making the most of the fine weather! A big thank you also to Paul Beckett for controlling, and for his helpful comments and advice in getting the fairest and best routes for all the courses. Thanks also to Dave Skinner for his tireless efforts in arranging everything (including the weather!) and making sure everything was in the right place at the right time in the run up to the event.

Controller's report - Paul Beckett (HAVOC)

Kevin Machin took great care to provide a good range of colour-coded courses that provided navigational challenges appropriate to the colour. He also updated the mapped vegetation to give scope for direct route choices across country where possible. I heard many appreciative comments at the Finish and I consider most people enjoyed both the physical and mental challenges set. The finish times for the Orange course are unusually long but the course was planned to standard. I attribute the slower than expected times on the Orange course to the high number of independent competitors who found it technically difficult for them or simply enjoyed it as a structured walk in the Spring sunshine. One control (102) was moved mischievously during the event and those adversly affected have been re-instated. One SI unit battery failed during the event but it was replaced and the results adjusted accordingly. The organisation went smoothly with Dave Skinner leading the well-drilled SOS team. Congratulations to SOS for an enjoyable event that clearly attracted a range of newcomers as well as the established orienteers.
