Results

We had a fantastic, albeit busy day for our first event as planner and organiser.As far as the competitors were concerned, I think it all went smoothly and there were no horrible glitches with the laptop, printer or download.
I’d like to offer a massive thank you to Chris Low who did a sterling job in guiding Jane and me through the whole process from planning to entering competitors into OE2003 on the day.A big thank you also to Craig Chapman for his support and helpful advice (and for the spare printer rolls, thankfully not needed today).
The weather was as good as we could have hoped for with sunshine throughout the day.  A red nose and head are testimony to that!Finally, a “Thank you” to the competitors who really made the day - from the M and W70s right down to our youngest, a W3!  She was barely tall enough to see the flashing light on the stake controls.  So sweet!

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
