Organiser's Comments - Julie Brook

Thanks to Cheshire County Council for use of the area and especially to the Warden, Ian Coppack, for letting us use the Information Centre - without this we would have found it very difficult to cope, given the extremely windy conditions on the night. The anemometer at the Information Centre recorded gusts of 100mph!

In view of the conditions, the route to the final controls on both the Yellow and Orange courses was deemed to be too dangerous for the younger juniors and so they were advised to miss these out although a few adults did complete the courses. However, I have not disqualified anyone who missed out these controls.

Many thanks to all the MDOC members who helped.

Planner's Comments - Dave Mawdsley

I had been told, just before I started planning some four weeks before the event, that the map was "a bit out of date". After a preliminary look round the area it was clear that a few map corrections would not suffice. The good news was that the technology (the map was already on OCAD and MDOC have a shiny new colour laser printer) allowed us to produce a revised map. The bad news was that I'm no mapper and was away on holiday for two of the four weeks before the event! However, thanks to the efforts, at short notice, of a number of MDOC members, we managed to produce new maps, albeit still with a number of errors but much improved on the previous version.

Planning on Tegg's Nose is never easy - the shorter courses really have to be confined to the top area and the longer courses always have much more climb than is recommended in the guidelines. The results suggest that the courses were about right, perhaps the Green was a bit short.

Although the wind was not quite so strong during the day when I was putting controls out it certainly made the task more difficult and I was worried that some controls might have been blown away. A couple were but were replaced and didn't affect competitors too much. It was nearly as bad the following day when I collected them in (surprisingly there were no volunteers in the evening!). I didn't expect to recover them all but did eventually find every one.
