Organiser's report - Nancy Powell Davies firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, we were blessed with wonderful sunshine that made being in the field a joy and Baddow Ridge is one of our better areas allowing for some more technically challenging courses.
Thanks are due to Geoff for planning and Paul for controlling. I am particularly grateful to Dave for all the support that he gave me and all who helped on the day in so many ways. A number of landowners are involved but especial thanks are due to Mr Hindmarch and Mr Green for use of their fields for car parking and the String course.
It was a delight to see so many newcomers to the sport and some returning after a number of years. Also the young families that made a day of it with picnics and second runs on the String course.
I certainly enjoyed my day and hope that everyone else did too.
Planner's Report - Geoff Pye
What a joy to plan on a technical area where there are strange brown lines on the map! Even bigger bonus when Nancy managed to organise the weather as well so that I was hanging controls in the fabled sunlit forest! Thank you all for turning up and running on the SOS best area. This is only possible due to the negotiating skills of the committee who managed to re-gain access to Baddow after it was unavailable for many years.
My sincere apologies for the slightly delayed start time and for control 129 which was placed 20m East of where it should have been. Looking at the times for the control though I do not think many runners were seriously affected.
The times were on the long side for a SOS event but that I think reflects the nature of the terrain and that TD3/4/5 were actually at the correct technical level which often cannot be possible in Essex. This meant the unwary were caught out.
Many thanks to Paul for his many helpful comments as controller; to Kevin for sorting out the map printing; to Nancy for her wonderful organization and not least to my son Jonathan for hanging all the controls in Blakes Wood. I dragged him out of bed at 6am after he arrived home at 1.30am from a concert at the O2!
Controller's Report - Paul Beckett (HAVOC)
Geoff provided some challenging courses on what is one of Stragglers best areas. The technical and physical challenge was reflected in the finish times that were generally on the long side. However that did not seem to matter much as most people enjoyed the challenge and the fine 'late summer' weather. Apologies for control no 129 (marsh) which with hindsight was probably placed a little too far north on the ditch rather than beside the marsh itself. Nancy organised her helpers with calm efficiency and overall the event was a credit to Stragglers.
