Officials' Comments

Organiser - Nancy Powell Davies, powell.davies@btinternet.com

A week before the event I was rather worried - my email account had been hacked and I was receiving no messages. Was my Just-in-Time, last minute approach to recruiting helpers going to backfire on me? On Wednesday full communications were restored, urgent messages sent, phone calls made and a team assembled. But I was still a bit short. It was as late as Saturday before the final offers were slotted into place.

Orienteering events don't happen in Britain without volunteers so I am VERY grateful to those who helped, all of whom were also able to have a free run if they wished. Particular thanks go to Paul Lowe for controlling the event and making sure everything was up to scratch.

The weather was kind to us, the facilities at Stockhouse Farm are good and the conditions in the wood were reasonable. Julie had planned some excellent courses which tempted and drove runners off the paths. It's just a shame that the walk to the wood is so long and muddy! But thanks to Julie and team we were able to enjoy a cup of tea and cake on return.

We look forward to seeing you again in a few weeks' time at Danbury.

Planner - Julie Laver

Pods is a compact area so the longer courses are challenging to make interesting but as its mostly runnable at this time of year there was hopefully enough off path navigation to keep the more adventurous orienteer happy. The weather was with us and I hope you all enjoyed you runs. Thanks to Paul Lowe who is always a pleasure to work with and useful for on the day computer support and Nancy for her organising skills
