Planner/Organiser's Comments Planning at Thieves Wood holds a special challenge - how to make the courses sufficiently technical in view of the extensive path network in the area whilst avoiding the worst of the undergrowth. In the end I think the times were a bit on the long side for the medium course so the forest was perhaps a little difficult in terms of visibility for some of the competitors. Nevertheless, there were many positive comments and thanks received from the competitors - makes the planner/controller(s) feel content with the nights work. Many thanks are due to Andy Jones and Keith Streb for their invaluable assistance and advice ........and not least for the bacon sandwiches!

PS - a tip for all woodland lovers.....run in the woods at sunrise. Collecting the controls in from 6.30 am on the Sunday morning was fantastic. A special treat.
