Many thanks for coming along today to Canklow - hope you enjoyed the courses and weather (is summer finally here to stay?!)
Simple results, as well as Routegadget and Winsplits, can be viewed via the links above. (Uploaded 17:00)
Results for the YHOA Schools Championship can be viewed below.
Thank you all for coming, and the sun for shining - it makes such a positive difference to an event and enabled you to see Canklow and the bluebells at its best (before the summer brambles take over in a few weeks time!). Apologies for the hanging of control 35, but we realised too late there was nowhere to gripple it to on the knoll.
Amazing to me how all the quick youngsters get round their courses so fast, but also how others sort themselves out and finish their courses - we all learn something from our mistakes. It's a big transition for many youngsters from Saturday Series parkland courses to a real wood.
Thanks to Colin Lynch for his work on the courses, which many people commented favourably on, as well as Dave Peel's map. Thanks to Colin's control collectors, Pete Gorvett and Colin Smith.
Thanks to Paul Bradbury for his quiet organisation, almost in the background but functioning efficiently, and his many helpers.
Thanks to Mike Lucking for his fast and efficient map printing, reliable as always.
Hope to see you again in an 'SYO forest'.
Ian Cooper (SYO)
I hope you all enjoyed Canklow in the sunshine. I feel I made good use of the area with many courses visiting the quarries twice and only briefly entering the uninteresting open area at the north of the map. The vegetation had grown up considerably in the two weeks prior to the event though hopefully you could still find runnable lines. I hope moving control 35 a short distance did not cause any major problems.
Thanks to Paul for organising (and collecting and returning the planners kit for me), to Ian for his controlling (including correcting some of my school boy errors in control hanging) and to the SYO helpers (particularly Colin and Pete for collecting controls). Most of all thanks to you the orienteers for attending and helping make it a very enjoyable day for me.

The A4 size map has been revised to ISOM 2017-2, with minor updates to Peel Land Surveys 2018 map by Ian Cooper. It is drawn at a scale of 1:7500 using LIDAR as a base for the contours. Brown has a 2 sided map.
