Winter Mid-Week Street O. Event No. 6
Wednesday 28th March 2018
Results and Final League Scores

Organiser/Planner - Nancy Powell Davies powell.davies@btinternet.com

Having offered to put on a winter series event for SOS around Coggeshall I realised that it isn't quite so large as most other communities that have been used. My young grandson at 2 1/2 has become an expert at spotting fire hydrants as we mapped them on walks during his regular Friday visits. We even had a trip to the fire station where we were given print-outs of the maps they use from the cab of the fire engine itself. They weren't up to orienteering grade maps though. I've learnt a lot more as well, like the hydrants with 2 signs, those signs with a blank under the 'H' and the sign wrapped around its post which was hard to recognise. In case you didn't know, the upper number relates to the water pressure and the lower number the distance from the sign to the hydrant (generally in feet but they may be changing to metres).

Most of those on the Long course accepted the bait and took to the field paths. I had warned that there might be some mud but the morning's rain meant that the ford came as a relief.

My thanks also go to elder son Jeff for help with getting the map set up and suggesting courses and younger son Alan for testing the courses and suggesting some amendments, also for help on the night. Also thanks to Kevin and Chris for help and support and, of course, for everyone who came along without whom the whole exercise would have been a waste of time.

Coordinator - Chris Childs

We concluded the Winter Series with a great run through the fine old streets of Coggeshall. A very successful series thanks to the magnificent efforts of the Organisers, so my sincere thanks to all of them. It has been great fun and provided an opportunity for many runners to try orienteering for the first time. Congratulations must again go to Lyn West for topping the league on the Long course and to Lorna and John Pettifer for running away with the title on the Short Course.

Looking forward to the Summer Series.
