Planner's Notes - Ian Gilliver

Thanks to everyone for turning up this evening: some 60 participants in total, I believe - a great response!
I hope that many of you enjoyed the challenge that Knutsford sets - so many adjacent areas are barely connected, that it's difficult to gauge at the outset what the best route may be.

John Britton has offered to take on the job of mounting the results, and I expect he will advise on control-specific issues that emerged on the night. Thanks John.
Thanks to Kate and Dave Bryant for their diligent and constructive checking of the map and the controls (clues). They did their job with great efficiency and dedication, and provided me with some welcome reassurance.
Thanks to Jen, Irene, and Rae for their work on registration/download/checking.
Thanks to Grahame for sharing the outdoor job with me - without Grahame I would have struggled.
Thanks to Steve Lang for advice on the map (and of course the printing), to Eddie (in Steve's absence) for uploading the files to Routegadget, and to Julie for her custodianship of the SI kit.

I must apologise for sending the wrong clue sheet to Steve for printing. It was the one that I'd sent to Kate and Dave for checking, and not the corrected version that they had produced.
This only emerged this morning when I was checking Mike Greenwood's results, after he had run the event yesterday evening and dropped off his responses with me this morning.
If I had not had the benefit of Mike's pre-running, two clues would have remained uncorrected for the main event [hence the black blobs on the clue sheets!], and I would have been very embarrassed this evening.
Thanks Mike!!

Kate and Dave had suggested some additional height information be added to some clues. I was happy to accept the recommendations - but I just sent the wrong file for printing.
The additional height info they recommended might well have been useful at Control 69, and perhaps elsewhere too. Sorry.

And finally, Kate and Dave's notes suggested that: "38 Number may be obscured by high leaves on bush....take the secateurs?"
Well, as I wrote to K&D this afternoon: "PS I did trim the branches around control 38 - just as the resident of the adjacent house came home from the shops.
I tried to explain what I was doing, in the rain, in the dark, dressed in jacket and tie, wielding a pair of loppers..."
