Organiser's Comments I embarked on my first attempt at Organising with a well-deserved reputation for being very thoroughly disorganised. However, thanks to very clear instructions, Angela Lucking's superb organisation of the equipment and a Controller and a Planner who have kept me on my toes, I survived - even enjoyed- the task. Thanks also to the many remarkably enthusiastic volunteers: yes- several actually volunteered! I was helped a great deal by seven family members although making sure that some of them were organised for their runs was harder work than running the event!

Planner's Comments My first attempt at planning a C4. More climb on the steep learning curve than you found in the terrain. Parking in the competition area was unexpected and a last resort. Many of you crossed the parking area or encountered registration on your run. This together with the late loss of the southern area does not seem to have spoiled your enjoyment of running in a new area, especially one with less than the usual amount of brambles. Brambles and bracken do not seem compatible with beech (which you enjoyed at start and finish area) so let's have more beech in EM forests, and less pine.

New maps have limitations. Several excellent control sites were lost due to other similar unmapped features nearby. My apologies to Green runners who felt that not enough 'green' was mapped near control no. 57 - the thicket. They are right. As a planner I regret not approaching the control site in the same direction as those on Green. It is simpler approaching from the opposite direction.

My thanks to Ray Barnes for hours of patient and meticulous controlling, to Hazel Rice and Steve Wright for help with the kites on the day, and Keith Streb for 'manning' the manned control.

Controller's Comments The recent weather has defoliated most of the deciduous trees, making much better visibility in some blocks. Judging by the times of the leaders on each course, I don't think you can have noticed how beautiful the woods were today.

Those of you on the longer courses may wonder why the approach to and departure from the 2nd Master Maps was a little contrived; well, maps take time to mature. I have no doubt the next version of this map will have more useable control sites, and hence the next planner will be able to keep you even more off the paths.

Visiting the southern end of the woods two weeks before the event, Bob and I decided that there was a risk of competitors drowning at some of the control sites near the stream, and discovering late that ownership of that area was not with the Forestry Commission, we therefore had no access permission, and couldn't use anything south of the e-w path anyway.

Parking was going to be on forest tracks inside Thieves Wood on the other side of the main road. Another late change meant we had to park inside Harlow itself. Thanks are due to Hilary for coping with the loss of toilets, water supply, a building for Registration, and having to create a new string course again.

It is a pleasure to have such an organised and adjacent Planner, especially one who brings along a bottle of red wine to make the courses look sweeter! Thanks Bob for all your hard work.
