Organiser's Comments - Sheila Hills

It was good to have a dry and sunny day for our first evening event of the year. Thanks to the efforts of my helpers everything seemed to go smoothly. We are grateful once again for the use of Robin Creed's field for parking. Thank you to those competitors who remembered to put their BOF number on the control card. It makes life a lot easier when doing the results using the Rainbow computer programme. Special thanks to Barbara Jones and my husband, who stopped me from becoming stressed out!

Planner's Comments - Peter Hills

It has been a few years since we last used Pettypool for a summer evening event, and it was nice to get out there again. We have lost a bit more land to out-of-bounds, which restricted the planning a little. Hopefully, in a few years' time this will become available again.

The combination of a late spring and having the event early in the season meant that there was (by Pettypool standards) not much undergrowth, which made for faster times. I did my best to keep the more technical courses away from path runs, but could not make the Blue quite as long as I would have liked. However, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and seemed happy with the courses.

Thanks to Jon Hately for controlling, and to Sheila for the organising.

Controller's Comments - Jon Hateley

As Peter's creative juices were flowing at full capacity, I barely had the opportunity to tweak any of his courses. I thought he made the most of an ever-diminishing area (In an idle moment, I must work out what percentage of the Pettypool map is currently in-bounds?!).

All were safely gathered in by the 8:30 cut-off time and there were no significant injuries to report I'm told my daughter had lost both her front-teeth before she started.

I thought the highlight of the evening was the sprint-finish between two generations of Beasants! Having followed his youngest son around most of the Blue course, Nigel put on a burst of (apparently to him) searing pace and flung himself over the line like a dying swan. Michael had wisely eased-off some time before the finish, for fearing of offending his father's ego and losing two weeks pocket-money.
