Thank you to everyone for turning up to our first ever event and making it such an enjoyable experience, despite the threat of rain and the unseasonably strong wind trying to blow our tent away on several occasions. Having a go at planning and organising an event certainly makes you appreciate just how much effort is required. Orienteering at Pooley Fields involves putting a lot into quite a small space, so apologies if the maps looked a little "busy". We hope you still found the courses challenging enough.
We would like to thank the many helpful people who made it possible for us to put on this event. Thanks to the Pooley Fields Park Rangers for allowing us to use the Country Park, leaving the toilet block open for us and coming back to open and lock the gates. Thanks to Bruce Bryant for redrawing the map, after we’d discovered there was a major new path to the summit of the hill. Thanks to Sue Bicknell for patiently answering our numerous queries and to Bob Brandon for his advice about our courses and timely reminders on how to use Condes! Thanks to Suzanne Humphries for tipping us off as to which control numbers were available for course planning. Thanks to Liz and Graham Urquhart for help with getting the kit together. Thanks to Karin Kirk for advertising the event and to Alan Halliday for the map printing. Finally, a big thank you to all the other wonderful people who advised us during the planning process and helped on the day, especially those who hung around to help us collect controls.
Thank you all.Lin and Steph
Updated 14/07/2011: several people have informed us that competitors are not disqualified if they punch an extra control, so long as they have punched all of the controls in the correct order. This has now been corrected for Peter Carey. Sorry!!
