Organiser's Comments - Paul Jones

I hope you all enjoyed another pleasant evening of orienteering. Pin punching feels quaintly old fashioned now, but this area was considered vulnerable to theft/vandalism. As it turned out the only items to disappear were two signs, one of which is still in the River Alyn. Having struggled to muster enough helpers, I would like to express my appreciation to the selection of both old and new faces who kindly offered their help (and to the Controller and Planner who were both willing to muck in with whatever needed doing) which ultimately enabled the event to run smoothly.

Planner's Comments - Mike Round

I hope that everyone enjoyed running the courses that I planned. I tried to take people to new sites on this limited area to present a bit of a challenge to those that have run here for the past 2 years, and with Noel Schorah's help, I think this was achieved. I received some good feedback from some competitors, and can only apologise to everyone for the numerous knee high nettles on some courses, but they weren't there when I initially planned the event about 2 months ago. Thanks to my wife Marion for helping to collect and put out the controls, and also to Mike and Chris Smithard who help to collect them in after the event.

Controller's Comments - Noel Schorah

Many thanks to Paul Jones for his efficient organising of the event and to Mike Round for planning some interesting courses which made good use of the area. Although this is not the most complex of our areas, the transition from fast open to wooded and semi-open may have caught some people out.

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves!
