Organiser's comments

As this was the first event I have organised, the learning curve was steeper than the terrain.  Although not overly difficult, by far the least comfortable aspect was finding and persuading inexperienced volunteers to assist on the day with the essential preparation of courses and administration - all easy enough to perform. Yet again the greater portion of the burden was shouldered by the same faithful supporters who always help. Their selfless support and advice was invaluable so I offer a very big thank you to Linda, Frank & Kath, Julie and Franziska who gave up their Saturday mornings in order that everybody else could enjoy themselves.

The courses were generally easy to design on a relatively small area and without  much variation in vegetation. I tried to force the experienced runners to explore the extremes of the park but alas, no-one found all the bonus controls. For those that attempted the score course I offer my apologies for the 3 transposed control descriptions; hopefully this did not spoil the fun for you.

Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves, and that is my reward.
