Planner's Comments Firstly - many thanks to Tony and Margaret Buckland for agreeing to control the event and for their assistance on the night.

Bulwell can never be considered a technical area although the wide open spaces do give plenty of opportunity for either complacency or accurate compass and pacing depending on your point of view. The medium and long courses were designed for plenty of changes in direction, leg length and difficulty and seemed to provide some challenge on the night.

Disappointment with the poor turnout was tempered by the positive comments from the few who decided to make the effort and support the event. It does seem strange that we have a total membership in the EMOA region of 500+ but a night event can only attract 7 people (and only 4 of these being members of NOC).

Final planning comment - it's the first time I've used OCAD to assist with the course planning - superb tool and makes editing the courses (and the map) a doddle.
