Pre Event Information
A fine autumn day on Dartmoor: what could be better for orienteering? The only problem was that the previous month’s heavy rain had left the parking field very soft and an early morning decision was taken to avoid the certainty of damage to the field and the likelihood of stranded vehicles. Fortunately, the roads outside provided adequate parking, albeit at some inconvenience to other road users enjoying the fine weather.
I hope that you all enjoyed the courses that Steve Rose (planner) and Andy Rimes (controller) had prepared and that you had enough energy to appreciate the views from the high moor.
My thanks are due to all those who helped on the day: Matt Atkins, Vivienne Maxwell, Ali and Andy Reynolds on registration and IT, Peter Grierson and Bryan Smith on starts, Ella and Ian Bowles on parking, Anne Hughes on helping newcomers and all those who helped collect in controls. Particular thanks to Nicholas Maxwell for helping at the start and being wherever he was needed.to correct my omissions.
