Organiser's Comments This was our first participation in Ashfield District's 'Countryside Day', and we thank their bus service for delivering regular batches of potential participants to our event. Unfortunately most seemed to be taking the bus just for the ride and didn't stop to have a try.
Most of those marked INDependent found out about the event from the Web Site.
However, it was very noticeable that with 5 helpers and 3 event officials we were able to devote much more attention to each newcomer, which we trust will prove mutually beneficial in the long run.
Thanks to my small band of helpers who devoted a larger than usual part of their Sunday without even a run, and to A.D.C. for the use of their toilets.

Planner's Comments This event was a Beginners Event to introduce newcomers to the sport, so I hope none of you found the courses too hard (or too easy!).
The comments after the finish you made were very positive so I hope you come and try orienteering again sometime.
I'm glad the weather was so good as I suspect that some of you may have been put off from coming if the weather was bad.
Thanks to Colin, David and Keith for collecting in controls.

Controller's Comments Stephen planned some excellent courses.
As usual Ray appeared to be everywhere and thought of everything.
I managed to check most of the controls on my bike. Oh and the sun shone all day!
What was missing do I hear you ask? Well apart from competitors nothing really........ a couple of useful contacts were made and everyone had a good time.
Thanks go to the chosen few who assisted on the day.
Hope to see you all at the next event.
