Officials' Comments

Organisers - David Lumby, david.lumby@thomasmiller.com & Chris Childs, christopher.childs@tiscali.co.uk

Quite a task SOS organising an event in Norfolk and difficult to recruit volunteers, so our sincere thanks to all those who contributed to ensure a successful event with over 200 participants. Everyone seemed to enjoy the event in no small measure due to the expertise and hard work of John and Jenny in planning the course. Their advice with the help of Sarah Mansel to us as organisers was also much appreciated. The weather was mostly kind to us and the autumn colours in Brandon Forest was quite spectacular. The string course was also popular with our younger competitors and of course many appreciated the cakes tea and cheerful greeting by Julie to complete the day at the cake stand.

Planners - John & Jenny Collyer

Coming back to Brandon (mapping and planning for JK86, the odd "Badge" event and the permanent course) we were happy to find that the SW area had been extensively thinned and brashed recently (no chance for the dreaded bracken and brambles to develop). Along with other thinning and the better northern part near the Country Park, we felt we were able to put on some courses with reasonable challenges and interest for Thetford Forest plantations. We hope you agree.

Thanks to Sarah Mansell as Controller for her attention to detail.

Controller - Sarah Mansel (SUFFOC)

I enjoyed working with John and Jenny again with roles reversed from our last collaboration. Their extensive experience made my job easier and the low number of controls meant I was able to visit them all on the morning of the event. That wasn't helped of course by a mechanical failure of my bike, but at least I had already visited the furthest controls. In the early stages of planning we only disputed one control - #130 - where I had found a much more distinctive tree than was marked on the original map.

When I checked all the controls in the morning - finding out that #129 had been programmed as a clear box was alarming, as that was late on my route. The control was changed, but of course there was not enough time to visit all the controls again to check if any others had the same problem! I was relieved when the first few runners returned with full complements of controls.

Chris worked hard in preparation for the day, and the event went well on the day assisted by David. There were minor worries about fitting all the cars in, but we seemed to manage okay. At the end of the day there was a concern about a possible missing runner, but unfounded; possibly due to confusion with misspelt data entered.

I think that the majority of participants enjoyed their run and the weather was reasonable for the time of year. Thanks to SOS and all the helpers who made the event a success.
