Organisers / planners comments - Rob McKenna
I hope you all enjoyed your run around this small, but interesting area.
The setting seemed ideal for this type of event - the use of the cabin may
have been essential if the threatened rain earlier in the day had moved
south.
The format appeared to work quite well although the abundance of maps at
the exchange allowed competitors to easily choose which course they wished
to do next - ideally with fewer maps, tactical analysis may have played a
bigger part.  I was initially a bit worried at the shortness of the courses
but this added to the 'excitement' at the changeover, with constant too-ing
and fro-ing.  I had thought of introducing a handicap system to allow the
normal 'medium' and 'short' course runners to have an easier time, but
decided that it would have been a bit too complicated - in the end I opted
for all cards having to be completed, but by any runner.
It was nice to see Dave Bendell back in action although I feel that he was
worked quite hard on the night.
Apologies for the error on course 'B' (two control descriptions and numbers
the wrong way round) - this was an oversight during the printing process,
which wasn't picked up until during the competition.
Congratulations to the winners of the GNF league and thanks to John Crosby
for awarding the prizes.
Thanks also to Dave Caudwell for the excellent map and helping out on the
night and to the Durham Scout Association for the use of the area.
