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

What a wonderful bunch of people our SOS members are! For a change I had a good number of offers of help and those that turned up flexibly filled all the gaps and helped in all sorts of ways that they hadn't been signed up for. Special mention must be made of Rory Ledwith, a sports volunteer who had hardly heard of orienteering before Sunday but did most of the data input for the SI and ran a creditable time on an orange course.

Thank you to everyone who turned up. Broaks is one of our more interesting areas and I understand the brambles weren't so high as often. And the sun shone! Earlier in the week the forecast was dismal but, so long as you were out of the wind, it was a nice day. I hope you all enjoyed your time.

I have two items of lost property retrieved from the car park: One sock and one glove! Please let me know if you are missing either of these.

Controller - Kevin Machin

A big thank you to all those who turned out and made it a terrific event. A special thanks to all the helpers who did a fantastic job and especially to Nancy who, as usual, seemed to organise the event without drawing breath. As far as I could see, everything ran smoothly. A special thank you to Tony Biggs who stepped in early on to help get the computers talking to each other. I would like to congratulate Alex for producing some challenging courses in what is after all a small area. He used the contrasting areas NE and SW to the full and also managed to keep the juniors on their toes. The sedge was definitely crossable if not truly runnable, the bramble was largely avoided and the sticky muddy paths could be left well alone on the longer courses. One experienced senior orienteer said that this was the best blue course he had ever run on in Broaks. After the rapid leaf fall of the last four weeks, there were a few paths that needed some clearing on the shorter courses – hopefully that kept them fair. Thanks also to Julie also for her help with Alex in the early gloom.

Well done to all and thank you runners for your kind and encouraging comments.
