Manchester and District Orienteering Club
Fletcher Moss Evening Event
Fletcher Moss was surprisingly dry considering how much rain we have had in the past few days, the playing fields that you ran across had a few puddles but nothing too sticky.
The turnout was a bit down on the first two parts of the mini series and some who could have won the series but couldn't come were edged out of top place. Well done to all the series winners who are listed in the series results on this site. I will be getting in touch with you over the next week to get your prizes to you. It was good to see several winners from Fallibroome, will we be seeing a team going to the British Schools Championships this November?
In the score event there was some tough competition, with several runners trying to maintain or improve their overall result in the series. The teams of planners succeeded in the plan to ensure no-one got all the controls on any of the courses within the 30 minutes, although the overall winner came very close last night.
Thanks to all the helpers in the series, without volunteers for all the jobs these events would not happen. Finally, special thanks to the three planners Edouard Salathe, Jane Clark and Kate Bryant who made several trips to the areas and John Kewley, our controller who made even more trips and probably doesn't want to go back, at least for a while...
