Organisers' Comments We hope everyone enjoyed the orienteering experience at this small introductory event in Thieves Wood.

The event appeared to run well with no negative comments received. We witnessed much enthusiasm with no one becoming seriously lost in the forest! Or not admitting to it anyway ! And it was dry too !

Newcomers to the sport can often find the processes and tasks necessary before the start confusing. We hope the assistance on hand and Ray and Pauline's note eased this process.

On everyone's behalf we thank all the helpers who ensured the event ran smoothly .... without whose input the session would not have been possible.

Orienteering is a sport for all the family .... at its best when you run up to your personal physical and technical ability. We hope to see you again at future events.

Keith, Maria and Rhys Roberts

Planner's Comments My objectives were to have a compact start / finish adjacent to registration, with three courses at the lower end of BOF guidelines in both length and difficulty. The demonstration course was merely to let you see what a couple of more technical controls might be like. Keith Streb and I decided to keep the courses as separate as possible so that a second (or third) run could be had without repetition. The Orange course became progressively more difficult, gradually adding a little route choice and more subtle control sites. Did anyone cut straight through from the gully end to the main track?

Thanks to Keith for the appropriate gentle nudging and especially for the site visit, which allowed me to armchair plan entirely. Thanks also to Stephen Wright for hanging the controls, and collecting them (with John and Keith), which allowed me to attend a controller's course on the same day!

Controller's Comments I thought the event went very smoothly with the only small problem being the temporary disappearance of the 5th control on the White course (fortunately someone could only throw it 4 meters!). A few competitors did have a problem with this but as the next control was visible from this point everyone coped well and Stephen replaced it very quickly.

If you did not find it, don't worry your time will still be counted! I hope you enjoyed your runs, I thought Ray's courses were excellent given the linear path network and took you all through some unexpected and exciting terrain (well it's exciting when you are not a jaded old orienteer like myself).

An especial thank you to Keith, Maria and Rhys who left nothing to chance and judging by the contents of the car nothing in the NOC garage as well! in fact if Sian hadn't been running for Wales today she would have had to travel to Thieves on the roof rack.

Well done to all of you who helped today.

And don't forget the next O-Zone event is on 13th Nov at Blidworth See you there!
