Officials' Comments

Organiser - Eddie Banks, banksy.eddie@gmail.com

It was great to see so many young people participating at Highwoods in the East Anglia Schools' Orienteering Championships and the final round of the ESSOL.

Plenty of adults too turned out on this final SOS event of the season.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped on the day and with the organisation leading up to the event. In particular I must mention Julie Laver, who has energetically run the ESSOL all season and Lyn West for the setting up of the EASC. Thank you too to Caroline Louth, Chair of the EA Orienteering Association for presenting the medals and cups to the worthy winners. Several people came along to help on the day, even though they did not run, so a special thank you to them, and in particular to my mentor Jack Isbester who was there to support despite his current health concerns. Last but not least to Steve and Colin for their excellent planning and controlling. This was my first event as organiser and it all seemed to go fairly smoothly on the day, thanks to this large support team.

The strong wind did play havoc with the signage, so apologies if some of you found the direction signs challenging - but then it is an orienteering event! Thankfully there were no injuries to report with nothing worse than some scratches from the many brambles. Most importantly the road crossing marshalls did a fine job in ensuring everyone got to the start and download safely. A learning point for next time will be to have a holding area at the start for the many competitors and their coaches waiting for the white and yellow courses. This will ensure a calmer process for clearing, checking and maintaining the required gap between competitors from the same school. Being able to hear the beeps is key, as one young competitor unfortunately found to their cost after failing to register a start time.

Clearly there is a need to attract more schools and other youth groups to our fine sport. Also avoiding exam time, especially for the older juniors is important. It would be good if we can encourage even more children to participate next year.

Congratulations to the medal winners and all the participants.

Planner - Stephen Carwright

Although obviously there's a wonderful freedom in running one of the things that can be missed is the nature at times. Wasn't it lovely to see so many buttercups and daisies, the flowers and flowering shrubs, the squirrels and the birds. I loved it. Over 160 people on the results list too.

As a planner it was a shame to hear many of the children say their course was too easy. Perhaps it's good to think of Orienteering as Running Navigation with the emphasis more on the running at the East Anglian Championship event, and with a need for everyone to work on their running speed aswell as their navigation I hope it can be looked on positively. Their certainly seemed a lot of puffed children at the end. It was great that people were trying. As I'm sure most know, the rules stated what courses had to be run by the various age groups.

Thanks to everyone for their kindness and help running up to and on the day of the event.

Controller - Colin West

A busy event is always guaranteed with the East Anglian Schools' Championship, and this event was no exception. The planning started much earlier in the year, and in February the planner was moved to record the following thoughts:

"The top end of wood was very muddy today by the way and I was a little worried about children's courses. Obviously May is a long way off though and tends to be drier."

With hindsight, Steve is seen to be a master of the understatement. Ten or more weeks of dry weather had emptied the wet ditches of water and produced mud pools where once mallards swam contentedly. The lake level remained around normal, and the dipping pond had enough water to sustain its environmental credentials.

The terrain at Highwoods presents challenges to the planner to try to keep the longer courses in the better parts of the woodland - and Steve certainly did so. It is, however, not possible to avoid the less splendid areas completely.

The network of paths does offer good choices for the junior courses, and these were set to challenge the regular competitor without moving out of technical range.

Eddie's organisation managed the event to a good standard, abetted by Jack as mentor and others involved with the Schools' competition.

Congratulations to the champions on the day!
