2019/20 Winter Mid-Week O’ Event No.2
The Cricketers Arms, Danbury
Wednesday 4th December 2019

Organiser - Jackie Sibthorp, Jackie_sibthorp@hotmail.com

Thank you to everyone who came along to the first orienteering event which I have organised, and the second event of the SOS Winter Series 2019/20. It was a lovely crisp & frosty evening as we gathered at The Cricketers Arms in Danbury, before setting off to find fire hydrants around the streets & trails of Danbury.

Most people managed OK – there were a few problems at the end with several people missing out the last hydrant, which was just before you returned to the pub, at the bottom of the hill. Apologies to Roy & Allen who got ‘told off’ at the Private gate on the long course – even though I had received permission from the householders to use the lane (no penalties incurred here)!

The other problem was hydrant number 8 on the short course, and 6 on the long course – which turned out to have 3 signs – all with different numbers!

Well done to Roy Read and Guy Lidbury who were the first men home on the long course, and Lyn Higgs & Melissa Dowell who were the first ladies. And Well Done to Tim Brockington & Taylor Gooding, who were the first male & female competitors on the short course.

It was a great turn-out of 31 competitors, thank you all for coming and I hope you all enjoyed your evening, including the drinks in the pub after the event.

Thanks to Chris for the support he gave me in organising my first event, and Alan for his assistance with the organising.
