Organiser’s Comments

Super evening, super turn out and as always super support from the EPOC stalwarts. In the end we had 100 finishers!

Special thanks to Jean for planning and Juliet for last minute controlling and finding the security officer when we arrived to a locked car park gate.

Jill, Arabella, Simon and Steve for control hanging and collection.. Guy, Judith and Sue for registration. Jackie and David for IT. Fred and Emma for the Start and Carla for the finish. My apologies if I have forgotten anyone. 

We had our problems en-route. The college car park was being sold even as the event went on, but thanks to Penny Appeal the eventual owners. The map scale also gave problems but thanks to Nigel at BML for sorting this.

Expected numbers were a nightmare. We were seriously expecting about 30 on a Monday tea time but had a load of late entries for medium. in the end we had 100. So we ran out of maps. Jean's master plan of printing extra medium course maps on paper worked well. We could recycle the waterproof maps and hand out new paper ones to take home. We just had to recycle about 2 on the long.

Controls in and car park clear at 9pm. Results up by 11pm.

Good evenings work by all.
