Ocganiser's Comments - Jack Isbester IsbesterEntries@aol.com

I take personal credit for the fact that on this first occasion competitors entered the forest from the West, which I hope meant that some of you visited parts of the forest that you had never seen before. I only received one complaint - that the distance to the Start was less than advised. For that I blame my Assistant Organiser Eddie Banks, who shortened the route and in doing so led competitors clear of muddy tracks splattered by cows! Assistant Organisers are happy inventions and I owe a very considerable debt of gratitude to Eddie for his patience, his thoroughness, his tact and his willingness to relieve me of all the more demanding aspects of the job.

It was a privilege to put on an event which attracted a competitor prepared to take the train from London to Bishop's Stortford, then the bus to Junction 8 on the M11, and then to walk the final 0.8 miles to the carpark. He got his reward, coming 2nd on the Black course!

One unfortunate competitor lost his hired dibber and paid the £20 penalty. I know of no other mishaps and the landlord of the Sir John Houblon would be happy to see us back at any time. I hope that some of you took the opportunity to sample his excellent wares.

Thank you to the ranks of SOS helpers who worked so willingly and efficiently as always and to you, the competitors who, with your achievements, your navigational disasters, your efforts and your enjoyment made the whole process worthwhile.

Thanks, finally to the Controller Graham Louth and to Planner Steve Robertson for their meticulous attention to detail, to the National Trust for use of the venue and to the weather for smiling kindly upon us.

Planner's Report - Steve Robertson

For Planners of my generation we have moved a long way from 'John Bull' course overprinting and needle punches. As a result of email, OCAD and other software tools the Planner and Controller for this event did not have to meet until control 180 (bridge) at 08:00 on Sunday morning!

The change in parking location for this event allowed the use the forest blocks on the west side of the map for the majority of the courses rather than the relatively monotonous open areas on the east side. At this time of year, after the leaf fall and undergrowth die back, the forest becomes more runnable and although the heavy frost kept the temperatures below zero it did prevent the mud from reducing enjoyment on some of the courses - particularly the shorter courses on tracks that had been churned up by the Hatfield cow herd.

The majority of the feedback received on the day was positive although we do recognise that there is a need to update the map to improve the consistency of runnabilty across the map.

My apologies to those of you who received some strange split times on your results at download. Due to an error introduced during the late reprogramming of some of the control boxes the internal clocks on some boxes were incorrect by exactly one hour. This did not impact the functioning of the control box but confused the SI software. The times have been corrected in the final results and you can see your split times on the Essex Stragglers web site (thank you Tony Biggs for making the corrections).

My thanks to Graham Louth who provided excellent Controller feedback and whose helpful advice improved the quality of the courses.

Finally, thanks to Jack Isbester for excellent organisation and whose initiative resulted in us being able to enjoy a new western perspective of Hatfield Forest.

Controller's Report - Graham Louth (WAOC)

Congratulations to Steve, Jack, Eddie and all the SOS helpers for a well planned, well organised and well run event, and thanks to Tony Biggs for post-processing the results to correct the problem that we had with the split times (caused by some SI boxes being on BST and some on GMT!) The only other issue I'm aware of was that the map could have done with being updated in a couple more places to reflect changes in the vegetation - my apologies to any of you whose run was affected by this. Otherwise I heard nothing but praise for the planning and organisation from everyone I spoke to.

I look forward to seeing you all again in the forest soon - in particular at the EA Champs at Croxton Heath in January.
