Officials' Comments

Organiser - Jack Isbester IsbesterEntries@aol.com.

My thanks to Bruce Marshall for careful, exacting and contructive controlling which helped to eliminate my various oversights and to Kevin Machin for his massive contribution as Mapper, Planner and map printer. Kevin managed to get everything satisfactorily fixed by his deadline - about 30 minutes before the first start!

It was pleasing to approach Hatfield Forest from a new direction and to use Wall Wood for the first time. The mooing of the cows and heifers was deafening in the car parking area (our sixth choice after our first five had all been unavailable) at 0700 on Sunday but happily quietened down by the time that competitors arrived.

My activities on the day were helped enormously by the SOS team of willing and constructive helpers, supplemented by Taro Koyama from Sans Souci OC of Japan, a friend of SOS for many years.

We are grateful to Jane Schwier of Woodside Green Farm for help and co-operation in access to the farm and to Simon Cranmer of the National Trust for orienteering access to the woods.

Planner - Kevin Machin

A big thank you to everyone who came and took part on what was a glorious day. Also thanks to everyone who helped on the day and Jack for his efficiency and persistence in finding parking.

Originally, as we were parking in the South, I agreed to map the extra small area of woodland (Wall Wood), so as to provide a new area and no long walks to the start and back from the finish. At the beginning of March the area was bone dry, even the large 'ponds' in the NW were dry, not even soft or marshy, and they stayed dry right through to the end of April (which was a wet month). As we moved into May everything started to fill, the ponds, depressions and even the ditches. It was interesting watching a very runnable woodland turn green, and everywhere stayed wet. Fortunately the bramble was limited to the fairly recently felled area in the North, which I had to use because of the routes in and out of the wood to cross the road. During April, I realised that the South of Hatfield Forest was hopelessly out of date. I suppose all the events of recent years had been able to avoid it. It then became a race against time, hindered by the weather, to get the map done, and the courses planned. I made it by the skin of my teeth, thanks in large part to Bruce's patience and swift response by email in responding to course suggestions. Another big thank you to Bruce.

It had been my aim to provide a course of the right length and technical difficulty for everyone, so there were a lot of controls that featured on one course only. I know how annoying it is doing a blue or brown course and being given a control on a path junction just to get the distance in! Judging by people's comment, it seems I may have succeeded. I hope also that most, if not all of you managed to avoid the worst of the bramble and nettles - you should have done!

Controller - Bruce Marshall (WAOC)

I don't mind controlling an event when we get a beautiful day as this one.

However, you will all remember that the Spring has been unusually wet. The Organiser took action early on to ensure that we could park cars if the bad weather persisted into June. I think you will agree he found an excellent location. The mapping and planning fell victim to poor weather with the result that courses were only finalized the Sunday night before the event.

The yellow course was voted the best course. Kevin's course took competitors along ditches for 4 legs, which was much more fun than following paths.
