SOS Summer League Event 2
Fordham Hall Estate
Wednesday 26th July 2017

Organiser/Planner - John Allen & Chris Childs jaysuk@btinternet.com

The Fordham Woodland Trust is well known to many and includes a permanent orienteering course (not used for this event) providing a good selection of terrain and route choice. There's excellent parking off Ponders Road with good space to set-up start-finish points. In planning we endeavoured to design the short course with safety in-mind although some trails had become overgrown and a few brambles were encountered. The long course being designed to suit more competent runners i.e. good stretches between controls and multiple route choices. It was a bit unfortunate that some 'travellers' had just set-up camp near one of the controls. An event planner met with them during setting-up and decided it was safe to proceed without alteration. No incidents or accidents involving first-aid were reported. The weather was a bit blustery with the odd smattering of rain and the ground underfoot mostly dry with only a short section muddying up slightly. The event was well supported with fifteen on the short course and fourteen on the long; ages ranged from mid-teens to over sixty five, proving this sport can be enjoyed by all especially with the handicap system in-place. The planners wish to thank all those who came and especially those who stayed and assisted in collecting the controls at the end; just before dusk! A few hardy types retired to the 'Shoulder of Mutton' Fordstreet for rehydration whereupon a full analysis and inquest took place.
