Officials' comments

Organiser - Dave Skinner dave.skinner@btinternet.com

While I had previously organised two SOS Relay events this was the first time I had experienced the use of SI for our unique Relays format. First of all I would like to express my thanks to other Officials (John Collyer, Chris Childs and Les Childs) for all their efforts in planning and checking courses, for their advice in advance of the event and for their efficient course set-up on the day. I also thank helpers who efficiently dealt with Registration, Dibber Hire and Start duties and all those who helped to set up the Assembly area and clear up afterwards, including those who found the energy to collect in controls. Thanks also to Andrew Cordle for his smooth management of SI aspects and Kevin Machin for timely production of maps.

My congratulations go to SUFFOC who managed to field the only two teams who completed the challenge without infringing the competition rules and specifically to the "Normally Open" team who were the worthy winners of the much-coveted Stragglers Relays Trophy. My commiserations go to "Club Sandwich" who had apparently finished first - unfortunately they did not fully followed the Rules and regrettably were disqualified. I do however award to "Club Sandwich" the prize (not that there is one!) for the most creative and amusing team name.

I hope all enjoyed the day. I would appreciate your feedback on the event either direct to me at dave.skinner@btinternet.com or via the SOS Forum at http://stragglers.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=93.

Planners - Chris and Les Childs

Our first attempt to plan a proper orienteering course - this proved an interesting challenge and we hope all participants found the courses both interesting and accurate. Thanks to Dave for his efforts in coordinating the event and our thanks also to John and Jenny Collyer as Controller for all the guidance, fine tuning and detailed map refinements. Congratulations have to go to the Suffolk teams who seem to have been the only teams to have read the instructions and punched the start before setting off. We shall have to try harder next year to recover the trophy!
