Organiser's Comments - Barry Chambers

I was pleased with the way that the event proceeded. At 8:30am, however, I was getting a little worried by the elements. Two of the three tents had been blown down and the timely assistance of two local people out walking their dogs was most welcome. After that, things seemed to go smoothly and well over a hundred of you were rewarded for your readiness to brave the elements by Jean's and Andy's well-planned courses. Thank you for coming. Even if the ruts slowed you down you could enjoy the pretty surroundings.

During the event two things made me feel uneasy.

1. I should have made the position of the provisional results strings (in the small car park near the finish) clearer to you. Mind you, given the state of the stubs, (writing affected by the damp and by frozen fingers among the finish team) I'm not sure that the strings provided a completely accurate picture on the day. Hopefully these results will appear quickly enough to make up for anyone going home on Sunday in ignorance of their performance.

2. More seriously, during the event the Countryside Ranger complained that some competitors had crossed out of bounds areas. Clearly this does our sport no favours given our dependence upon the goodwill of landowners. It is very unlikely that runners on the Yellow or Orange courses would have been tempted into the areas. Those experienced orienteers who transgressed will know who they are. Please stick to the rules in future!

On a more positive note I must pay tribute to my frozen team of helpers. I firmly believe that all helpers should be named in "results". They were- John Collins, Barbara Jones, Rachel Grundy, Caroline Gregson, Martin Pickering, Barry May, Rob McHarry, Paul Monaghan, Tim Palmer, Ritz Ritzema, Mark Taylor, Michael Woods, John and Susan Sherwood and Barry Barnes.

Thanks are also due to Mrs Dobson of the Egerton Arms for the use of the car park field. Thanks must go to David Wright ,County Council Ranger, for permission to stage the event. Apologies are also due to him on behalf of those who chose to ignore the rules.

Finally thanks to John Hammond for guiding me through the computerised results process.

Lost property - one mitten, one wellie - both toddler size (tel 01606-883474).

Planner's Comments - Jean & Andy Payne

We knew that Little Budworth is small but perfectly formed. Now we know that it is pretty in the snow! We were fortunate to be sharing the planning with Peter Sleigh who planned the night event. In fact we used mainly his control sites with a few extra. The trade-off for the use of his sites was that we put out the night event controls while he went skiing! Need he have bothered as there was snow in plenty on Sunday? We hope you enjoyed the courses. Thank you for turning up.
