Organiser's Comments Conscious of the competing interests that occupy Saturday mornings, particularly those at half term and when the Caddihoe is on, I was less than optimistic about the number of people that would turn up for the event. As usual my pessimism proved ill founded and there was a much stronger entry than I had expected.

It was pleasing to see a number of newcomers, and I hope that you enjoyed the experience enough to be looking forward to our next event, which will be just across the road in Harlow Wood next month.

Valuable information was obtained for future string course organisers - red and pink sweets are sought after, but yellow definitely get the thumbs down.

Sincere thanks to the small band of helpers who made the event a success.

Planner's Comments Planning in Thieves Wood is not easy. To set a course by torchlight, late at night in October is not recommended. It is downright S.P.O.O.O.O.K.I.E.

However the weather was kind, the forecast got it wrong again. Peter, the controller on the day, had the worst of it when he was checking the controls. The rain stayed off all day, but it was a bit damp in places. From a planners point of view all seemed to go well. I received a lot of positive feedback, for which I am grateful. There were a few comments about the number of rides in the North Eastern area (controls one and two for courses green and above). Pacing and distance are fairly important. You won't always get an easy first control.

I would like to extend my thanks to John Dalton, who gave me some invaluable advice; Peter Hubberstey who controlled on the day, and from whom I gained some invaluable experience; Ray Barnes who assisted in siting controls and finally Tony Donaldson who ensured both planner and controller were kept on their toes during the event.
