Organisers and Planners Comments

Thank you all for coming, on beautiful evening; the weather at Bole Hill is not always like that so we were lucky. Thanks to the Westway school children for coming, they all did very well, with their enthusiastic attitude - the school and their parents should be proud of them. Apologies for control 9 on the Yellow Course, the vegetation had grown since the courses were planned a month or so ago so the control became more difficult than expected. Well done to international orienteer Alice Rigby for winning the score event, it was an excellent time given the hilly terrain.

Finally thanks to all our helpers, including those who stepped in at the last minute. It made our job much easier.
