Organiser's Comments

We put on this informal event at very short notice, and didn't know whether 50 or 500 people would come - makes organising rather tricky!
I believe that the message that there would be no drinks at the Finish didn't reach everybody, and there were a few thirsty/cross finishers. Heaton Park sell the catering rights and don't like us spoiling the trade - so we didn't. If anyone feels very irate, could they ring me and discuss it (it was my decision) rather than writing rude letters about MDOC to CompassSport.
Everything else seemed to go alright (thank you to all the helpers) and wasn't the weather glorious. We were amazed that with so many visitors in the park, we lost only 1 punch.

Planner's Comments

Hope the courses weren't too bad given the short time I had to plan them. Apologies in particular for the odd problems with the control descriptions, I rushed through them a couple of days before the event and one or two errors crept in. However, I think the controls were all in the right place and had the right codes on them which is the most important thing. Apologies to you who had problems with 2V (the veg boundary south of the lake). I still think it was in the right place although the gaps in the fence, marked on the map as crossing points, aren't - which probably led to the problems. I assumed that you would simply come in off the fence corner opposite and turn right. If you did it was right there! My thanks go to Chris Kirkham for his help in putting out the controls and to Mike, Joan and Shafiq for helping to collect them in.

Twin Peak 2001

September 8th and 9th at Macclesfield Forest

We are feeling optimistic that the event will be able to go ahead - we already have access to the footpaths in the forest.
Details and entry forms will be distributed when there are suitable events. (Scottish 6 Day?).
