Organiser's Comments

Renamed by husband Mike the 'Double Trouble', organising this event proved to be quite an experience. I hope not too many of you felt let down by NOC having to abandon the Saturday races. I've learned a lot in the process. In the end, everything seemed to turn out alright on the day.

Thanks to Ray, Pauline, Gill and Angela for guiding me through the process and to Michael Napier for his wonderful automatic results process (and hard work!); Thanks also to all the helpers, whose enthusiasm was infectious, many of whom were not able to have a run because of the logistics of providing two races.

Planner's Comments Any event is a series of compromises.

Faced with a low entry on the short races we decided to produce a race by running the three courses on the course originally intended for M45+ / Women Open. Times for the leaders are reasonably close to the design times, but the loss (or gain) of 700 or 800 metres overall made the leaders a few minutes faster (or slower).

At the Chasing Start there were three possible routes to the first control. The straight line was actually much quicker, but the lead runner went left, and everybody thereafter went the same way. The lesson is to allow thinking distance between collecting the map and the first decision point.

The otherwise wasted short Open courses were tacked together to make a rather strange Blue, but with only 29 boxes on our control cards I compromised by eliminating the punches at the 2nd master maps. A few of you appeared confused by this - probably as many as fail to punch at 2nd master maps anyway. Perhaps the same people?

No compromises on the weather - it didn't rain, and the forecast gales only blew down one tent!

Thank you to Keith and David for handling my Picover and Ocad problems, and especially to Helen for accommodating the continuous changes I was introducing into the organisational needs. Thanks to Stephen, Bob & Hazel for control hanging (initially in the dark!)

A final thank you to Peter who controlled my excesses just enough (judging by the finish area comments) to avoid a compromised event!

Controller's Comments Controlling a Short Race provided an interesting change to the normal Colour Coded event although eventually there was only one short race rather than the intended three. This was decided in order to create the head to head racing in the chasing start which is the essence of this type of event. Standing at the chasing start watching you all go off at great speed indicated that things had worked out well in this respect.

The Blue course was a composite of a planned but unused short race, hence the much higher than usual control frequency . I understand that some competitors had difficuties with the number of boxes available for punching and absence of punches at the second master maps. We did anticipate that this might cause problems and in fairness to Ray I feel that he did everything possible to make competitors aware of the situation.

Controlling this event I gained some experience of the Picover computer software. Used by someone with required computer expertise like Ray, it is a powerful tool and seemed to be able to do everything except plan the courses. In fact Ray was very well organised and put in a tremendous amount of hard which contributed to the success of the event On your behalf I would like to thank him and the other members of NOC who helped with the organisation
