Organiserís/Plannerís Comments - Norman Harris
A total entry of 116 was big indeed for an NN event of this type. Our entrants came from 12 clubs,
including West Cumberland, Roxburgh, Claro and Ebor, along with 25 non-club entrants. There was even
a British squad member, Andy Kitchin, who made short work of what had seemed a fairly physical Blue course.
The 44 runners on that course Ė just taking us beyond our pre-printed map supply - would seem to indicate
that there is plenty of demand for strategically sited events on Championship weekends.

One small disappointment was that not everyone seems to have read the Final Information sheet given them as
they arrived. Two critical pieces of information were that the map scale was 1:7,500 (this was highlighted
as being a change from some pre-event info) and that high walls edging the old railway track near the finish
necessitated some taped routes. One can only urge competitors to read any info they get on arrival: thereís no
knowing just how important this could be, and itís not reasonable to rely on the organisers repeating parts of
it at Registration or the Start.

Many thanks to the landowner, Tom Bates, and to Jane for opening up the wonderful Garden Station. The combination
of cafitiere coffee and a spotless loo is a rare one for the O-community!   And in Rob McKenna I was lucky to have
a controller whose control-site checking represented just a fraction of his total input to the courses and to
general organisation.

Controllers comments - Rob McKenna
Well done to Norman and his small band of club helpers who combined to make this event a pleasurable experience.
The club had used the area for a training event some years ago and I had forgotton how nice the woods were.
Whilst rather small I think that Normans courses utilised the area perfectly and produced a suitable challenge
for the courses that were ran.  Setting aside the blue course winner (and well done to Andy), times are round
about what I expected for this area and judging by comments recieved at the download station, most competitors
seemed to enjoy their runs.
To add to Normans concerns over reading of final details, I had noticed while collecting controls that some competitors
on the blue course had ran along the road, which was marked as a forbidden route. Although a minor road, it is quite
twisty, has fast moving traffic at times and can be rather dangerous.
The green course split times appear to have a control missing - I have been informed that this is due to an error
in setting up the courses on the computer and apparently cant be rectified.
After some confusion, I hope that the results now truely reflect the courses that people ran on the day.
If not then please let me know.
