Officials' Comments

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

Not unsurprisingly I received tremendous support in carrying my role, and send a big thank you to Kevin Machin and Clive Tant 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 the Forestry Commission and Essex County Council who supported this event by giving their permission for use Hockley Woods, Mrs Sally Tippett who allowed us to make use of her farm for assembly and car parking (the proceeds from the car parking charge went to her), and Simon Hooton/Steve Bones of SUFFOC who kindly accommodated our use of the newer lighter SI equipment - we were originally assigned the older heavier equipment and had concerns about our ability to install controls on the day in the few hours of daylight available before 10.30, concerns that were well-founded - we only just made it with the new equipment! I also appreciated Barnardiston School's help in returning some of their maps for re-use when it became apparent that we were in danger of running out on White.

The good number of entrants who took part (approaching 150) was very rewarding, and it was particularly pleasing that there were a number of newcomers to the sport - we very much hope to see you again at our future events and activities. I apologise for the 'challenging' car parking arrangements - it was always going to be tight, but owing to wet ground conditions the areas we could use were further limited on the day. The only alternative car parking/assembly possibility we have for this venue is on tracks in the woods which I feel is less satisfactory, partly because of uncertainty regarding the condition of the tracks and also because this potentially restricts course planning options. I hope you enjoyed the day - thank you for coming. I would very much welcome any feedback on the event - my email address is above.

Planner's Comments - Kenin Machin

It was always going to be tight once we knew that a significant amount of felling was going to take place on the East side of the area, as we knew that the vehicles were going to have to exit through the NE. Also we knew that a significant amount of remapping was going to be needed as not much had been done for at least five years. So it was a great relief to see that the damage was not so bad and that the event could go ahead. Then the work began in earnest, made a little worse by the weather, but frozen paths are much easier to travel over than the ones we were blessed with on Sunday! Just in case we were a little too comfortable, Essex county council decided to fell three blocks on the West side without prior warning, which meant significant re-routing of the short courses. All in all though, the area is much more runnable now and hopefully you benefited from being able to cross blocks of woodland rather than having to use the very sticky and muddy paths. Thankfully I was able to spare the white and yellow the worst of the paths. Apologies to those on the blue that were affected by the 'missing' control on the map which meant that the descriptions went out of sync. Hopefully it did not spoil your enjoyment. Thanks to Dave for listening and enabling everything go so smoothly, and to Clive for his advice and tireless work on the day. Thanks also to all who came, it makes all our efforts worthwhile.

Controller's Comments - Clive Tant

Chalkney Woods were in as good a condition for orienteering as I can remember and Kevin certainly made good use of the better parts. In fact, I thought his courses were very good and I hope everyone enjoyed them. I am sorry that the difficulty of the control numbering which affected the blue course had not been spotted earlier but everyone completed the course. There were surprisingly few mis-punches and non-finishers which adds credit to the quality of the courses. Well done to Dave Skinner also for another smooth operation as organiser.
