Organiser's Comments A complete re-structuring of the event with only 3 weeks to go!

Sian's original courses all used the newly felled area. With the kind co-operation of Forest Enterprise, the whole event was relocated to the other side of the wood. I hope nobody using the old directions was too put out finding they had to drive back round the wood again.

Thanks to all the helpers everything went very smoothly.

The main part of this year's Mansfield and Ashfield 'O'Zone is now over. The club will be reviewing the impact the events have made, and considering how best to bring Orienteering to the public. Please eMail/call me if you have any points you would like to raise.

Planner's Comments This was the first event I've planned on my own and I was grateful for the support, advice and encouragement I received from Hilary and my family.

The weather was kind to me as I put out the controls, but for competitors it made an additional challenge to their run. The rain only eased as I went to collect them in again! However, from the comments made most enjoyed their run, which I was pleased to hear.

The white and yellow winning times were rather shorter than predicted and perhaps the lengths could have been a little longer.

Hope you enjoyed the day as I did.

Controller's Comments Thanks to you all for supporting the event despite the rain. You seemed to enjoy Sian's courses (it takes dedication to your sport to get up before dawn on your Birthday to put out the controls). Well done Sian and thanks to your family for their help.

As a coach, I was interested to hear your route choices taken on the Orange course where simple use of the compass and distance judgement were important. For beginners: the straight line joining controls shows the order they should be taken, not necessarily the route (depending on the dreaded brambles in our forests sadly!). Was the best way from 3 to 4 up, along and down, down along and up or straight? I favoured the second option because it gave a better 'attack point'. Come along to our club coaching session on Jan 22 to learn a few more 'tips'.
