Hope everyone enjoyed this new venue. It has taken 7 years to negotiate permission to use this lovely area but I'm sure you agree that it's great for orienteering. Our BBQ cooks did a great job feeding everyone. Thanks also to the 50 helpers who made the whole event possible. Thanks also to Sue Hallett for some great courses and to Kerstin Mitchell for keeping us under control. An all round good day to celebrate the club's 50th anniversary.
Kimberley adds - thanks to all who bought cakes from the juniors. Total raised was a massive £174.50 including donations of £48 from salad providers.
And of course the weather was as described in the Final Details ! Can I go to sleep now?
Many thanks Phil Kirk ~ Organiser
A huge thank you to Sue and Phil and OD for making my controlling such an easy job. Sue did plan some very good courses and Phil showed great skill as an organiser. It was great to be part of your anniversary and you showed us all how it’s done!
A new area! Almost unheard of here in Warwickshire so I jumped at the chance to plan our 50th anniversary event there. I was tempted to make it a 1960s event but that would have been a waste of the new map so I tried instead to give you all a taste of this beautiful estate.
Of course I did most of the planning before the nettles which made it not quite so wonderful for all you runners. I did do changes when I saw where they were at their worst but impossible to avoid altogether, Still that, hopefully, gives someone else a chance to wander around the woods and fields for an event earlier in the year. There are definitely other control sites under the nettles!
I hope you enjoyed your course anyway and Phil’s new map. I think the hardest to plan and to run were the shorter courses so congratulations to all you younger or newer competitors who successfully negotiated some tricky legs. Hope you enjoyed the view from the cannon. I managed to get all but the Green and Short Green to visit this unusual Orienteering feature.
Thanks must go to Sir James Shuckburgh, his estate manager and his tenant farmers for allowing us all there. Also to Phil for the map, the wonderful organisation, the barbeque and, not least, the good weather. Then thanks to my Controller - Kerstin Mitchell (HOC) who gave good advice without pressure and found out my control number swap before you all arrived.
Finally then I must thank my control putting out helpers, Nick and Nadine and all those who collected afterwards allowing me to relax over a pint – Will and Richard Gardner, Bob Brandon, Kirsten Strain, Carolyn Marr and Chris MacKenzie.
