In October 2009, after a break from orienteering for over ten years and a move from East Anglia to Birmingham, we entered our first OD event. It was at Brueton Park. On that occasion we did an Orange course together, without a compass, and got hopelessly lost! Roll forward two and a half years and we were back, only this time setting the courses.
Thank you to everyone for turning out on what seemed like it was going to be a nasty wet day. Fortunately, when we got to the Brueton car park at 7am it had stopped raining. We were met there by John Middler who had “borrowed” the controls for a mid-week event and had volunteered to help us put out controls and set up. Not only did he do this but he waited around for the end to help us collect the controls as he had to shoot off to Coome to put them out for the next day’s WML event. Now THAT is dedication! Thank you, John.
The weather cleared and we had all the controls out by 8.30, so Steph decided to run the weekly Brueton 5k Park Run, which she completed in a respectable 23.20.
There ended up being a good turnout for the orienteering event, aided by students from Bourneville and KHVIII schools. The Bourneville pupils even went out twice, completing both the Yellow and Orange courses. It was a shame that Daniel Thornewell mis-punched on both courses as he had the fastest times on each one. A lesson to us all in how important it is to make sure each control has registered.
Many thanks to all those who helped: John Middler and John Ward for collecting up controls, Suzanne Humphries for helping to clear away and stepping into the breach with Download when we had a flurry of Registrations, and Karin Kirk for her usual meet & greet. A final thank you to Mike Hampton who found one of the controls had been “relocated” up a tree and climbed up to rescue it, before carrying on to complete his course. It was lovely to meet so many new faces as well as the more familiar ones and to receive positive feedback on our courses was a real bonus.
