"EVERDON O RACE A HIT" STATES ROB B
Well I hope it was and you all enjoyed your runs. It certainly seemed that way to me from all the lovely comments you made. Thank you. And the smiles shone as bright as the sun. I love orienteers, they are a happy lot. It was especially nice to see so many enthusiastic newcomers. Hopefully we’ll see you again at an event soon.
One of my alternative headings before the race was “BOB IS THE STAR AT EVERDON O RACE” and indeed he was. Not only was he the only one brave enough to run an alternative version, in the final results he won by miles. Bob’s sentence might not have been entirely truthful. I’m not sure I’m the best female at anything and I’ve certainly never been described as a raver before! But it was highly complimentary (and we females do like a compliment) and I was so pleased someone had risen to my challenge that I used my organisers prerogative and awarded him the maximum time reduction of an hour. Well done Bob, you’re my star.
(As I seem to have a talent for predictions I shall say now, in the hope it comes true too, “OD ARE THE STARS AT THE CSC FINAL”. Well SYO are obviously worried, they sent one of their members down to spy on us!)
Allan McKinley from HOC was not so lucky. He toyed with the idea of visiting controls ‘N’, ‘O’ and ‘T’ again within the sentence to negate it. And though he resisted the temptation, even thinking such a blasphemous thing jinxed him and he missed a control! There’s no going against the truth! I’ve not disqualified anyone on the long course though as I think you were all really great to try it. Instead I have given a 5 minute penalty for missing a control and a 2 minute penalty for every control that was repeated.
I was very pleased to see some of our young juniors out and starting on their way. I think there will be some strong competition between Henry and Rory in the future. And Mia obviously takes after her Dad Iain, very talented, winning her first race.
Finally I would like to thank all the wonderful people who helped me.
John Ward for running registration so efficiently.
Karin Kirk for helping all the newcomers. She is always so enthusiastic and welcoming.
John Middler, Bob Brandon, Lin Page, Steph Ellis-Gray and John Ward for collecting in all the controls, and
Geoff Mander for being my very able assistant and not backing out on his promise to help when I said on Friday we would need to leave at 6.00am this morning.
I’ve just thought, maybe Bob was saying I was raving mad rather than wildly enthusiastic about OD. Perhaps I’ll go back and adjust those times....!
