As always I received superb support in carrying my role. Many thanks to Geoff Pye, Clive Tant and Kevin Machin for their pre-event advice and their considerable planning, map-updating and controlling efforts, and to my willing and flexible band of helpers (too many to name here) who were all brilliant. In particular I would single out Laurie and Rex Niven, ex-SOS members from Australia who did an excellent job inputting registration data, and Jack Isbester who covered for me while I had a (fairly disastrous!) run myself. I also thank Essex County Council and Danbury Outdoors who supported this event by giving permission for use of the area and for provision of facilities, and Tony Biggs (HAVOC) for emailing results files to me after I discovered they had somehow disappeared from my memory stick!
Unexpectedly the car parking area proved to be tight, but we just squeezed in. As you will have seen the area continues to undergo a considerable amount of development - the competition area is constantly changing with the addition of new activity and other structures providing a continual mapping challenge. Special efforts were made to ensure that hazards in the NW sector in particular were brought to the attention of runners, and thankfully First Aid received no customers!
It was rewarding that a family new to orienteering was attracted by the Nestle 'Get Set Go Free' promotion - we hope to see them again at our future events. All competitors I spoke to after their runs were complimentary about the courses. 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.

The rain stopped as I got out of my car at 7am to put out the controls and did not start again until bringing in the controls! The weather was perfect with the fabled sunlit forest. I hope you all enjoyed your runs in the splendid conditions. Much credit goes to Clive Tant and Kevin Machin who updated the map and pointed out my errors in the planning. Many thanks to them and to all other SOS members who contributed to the success of the event. Looking at the splits it was interesting to note that errors were made on a variety of controls. Danbury looks easy but will bite back at any competitor who loses concentration. Some of the times on the courses run mostly by juniors were a little on the long side and my advise to them is to frequently look at the map and plan what you have to do and remember line features are not only paths! Thank you for coming to the event, it makes the planning worthwhile, and I look forward to trying to get you misplaced again in the future.
