Organiser's report - Dave Skinner firstname.lastname@example.org
As always I received superb support in carrying my role. Many thanks to Clive Tant and Kevin Machin for their pre-event advice and their considerable planning and controlling efforts, to John Williams for assisting with planning activities,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 permission for use Hockley Woods and Tony Biggs (HAVOC) for emailing SI event and results files to me after I discovered my memory stick was not compatible with the SI laptops!
It was gratifying that a number of newcomers to orienteering took part, some attracted by radio advertising (well done Rachel!), and we were pleased to welcome 'guests' from distant WHITEO and WIM clubs. All competitors I spoke to after their runs were complimentary about the courses and most found them challenging. 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 Report - Clive Tant
Hockley Woods is always surprisingly more interesting and more fun than many may expect and I hope that all participants found this to be so. This year's undergrowth was more of a challenge on courses both for planning and competition on the day. It didn't spoil my enjoyment and I hope the courses didn't spoil your enjoyment. Kevin Machin (controller) was, as ever, a great assistance and it was very useful to have John Williams working alongside me. Finally, there should always be praise of the organiser who has the toughest job of all and Dave Skinner certainly does a good job.
Controller's Report - Kevin Machin
It was a pleasure to work with Clive who I feel made an excellent fist of planning fair and challenging courses, in what was a very difficult area. Recent felling over several years has made large areas of Hockley unusable, and what with the recent wet weather providing fuel for the brambles, it made it very difficult to create good courses. But I think Clive did it well and I only heard compliments about the courses afterwards. Dave Skinner did a wonderful job of organising everything and all went beautifully smoothly until it came to saving the results! The very last thing. Not your fault though Dave. Thanks to all Dave's helpers and also to John Williams in assisting Clive with the planning and indeed on the day. Congratulations to Jenny Collyer on becoming club champion, narrowly beating John. Well done! Great weather, great event, it is just a shame more people did not come along. Their loss!
