Officials' Comments

Organiser's Comments - Mark Lyne

My thanks go to Andrew Cordle (Planner) and Colin West (Controller) for the efficient way in which they got things ready for this event. This was despite the changing scene at Broaks due to felling which has sadly affected much of the previously runnable woodland.

It was good to see a novice group of youngsters from St Andrew's school. They seemed to enjoy their day despite the mud and the length of time out in the woods. Hopefully we will see them at future events honing their skills on the White course.

Despite the absence of some of the regular helpers I was able to get a team together who all did an excellent job on the day. Events at Broaks are always helped by having access to the Gosfield School facilities for which we were very grateful.

Planner's Comments - Andrew Cordle

I'm not normally a believer in conspiracy theories, but I'm beginning to suspect that someone at the Forestry Commission looks through the event registration forms for my name, and then sends in the fellers. One group removed some bramble-infested conifers which was no great loss. The other is in the process of thinning the nice runable area to the SE of the wildlife hide. After felling a tree with a control site tag, they considerately replaced the branch with the tag at the correct location.

Although some areas of the woods are getting more runnable, others are going the other way and there are now many areas which have been felled and haven't yet grown back to runnable maturity. I did my best to keep you in the best areas, but some slow run/walk was inevitable. I suspect that there is one ideal weekend each autumn - after the summer vegetation has died down, before the mud returns for the winter. Unfortunately, I don't think you can predict in advance which weekend it will be!

Controller's Comments - Colin West

Broaks Wood changes from year to year - with Andrew's influence as planner it changes week to week. Some parts of the wood have improved, and are a delight - Andrew did use these, but also included some more difficult terrain. The torrential rain of the wettest November in my living memory - six inches in most of Essex - had not made much difference to an area that always boasts a few soggy patches. The ponds were back to being full after some depletion. Many runners tried to plumb the depths of the wood, and appeared at download with souvenir mud - please return it when you've finished with it!

With a good number of first-timers, the event was challenging enough - but all commented on the enjoyment level, and I hope to see them at future events to continue their education in orienteering skills and fun.

Congratulations to John Collyer who won the Club Championship by a whisker from 'er indoors (Jenny Collyer) - perhaps better described in orienteering circles as 'er outdoors.
