Organiser's Comments

We had a pretty smooth day in terms of organisation. My job was made very easy, because I had so many willing helpers and Ed had laid the start and finish out before I arrived at 7:30!

The only thing to really challenge us was finding out at about 10:15 that there was a concert on at 11am with lots of elderly visitors who'd been directed to park in the sports centre car park! Thanks to Mark Chapman and Judith Carder's quick thinking, they diverted the orienteers up to the next two car parks and squeezed as many concert goers as possible into the sports centre. Well done. At least it justified having the parking wardens there!

Everything else went without a hitch.

Thanks need to go to our many helpers:
