Organiser's Comments

The event was organised with the expectation of about 160 runners participating but the actual number was only 77. Given the awful weather forecast and the warning to avoid unnecessary travel on the day we were pleasantly surprised by the number that did turn out and their enthusiasm is a credit to our sport, although the low temperatures, and snow showers followed by rain unfortunately took away the enjoyment for many.

As I have now come to expect sufficient Suffoc club members volunteered to help and all the tasks were more than adequately covered making my role as organiser easy to fulfil. Also the club is very fortunate that we always receive support and assistance from the Rendlesham Forest office of the Forestry Commission and this year was no exception.

Apart from the weather no problems arose apart from one runner on the Blue course who sustained a serious and painful arm injury which required hospital treatment. Fortunately, two other competitors immediately went to his aid, gave immediate assistance and helped the injured runner get back to safety.

Planner's Comments

A gap of 19 months between planning is a little long and the skills picked up first time were a bit hazy. Thanks to controller Paul for providing sound advice and ensuring I moved from a dodgy yellow & green to something a lot better. His dedication to detail and travelling all the way from deepest Essex in poor conditions was much appreciated. Tangham Forest is relatively large and I drifted wide and to the top and bottom of the map to get to interesting features. This did mean I had a few too many controls and very many, many thanks to the kind people who helped me collect them at the end of wet day – even if that was the only time we saw the sun. The dense growth of gorse in places made some bits of the forest unusable. Following the replanting after the 1987 storm that so devastated the forest much is still young and quite a fight. Well done to the competitors, especially on the longer courses that hammered their way through the forest between controls - at least it kept some of the snow off you! Thanks to Paul Lowe for the help with the technical bits and especially to Rob Coulter who is a marvellous Organiser to work with and also helped putting out and collecting controls. Thanks to all Club members for playing a part and I wish Clive Wilkinson a full recovery from his dislocated elbow after he showed how desperate some people are to win the East Anglian League!

Controller's Comments

The thorough and efficient preparations by the planner and organiser meant that the event ran smoothly despite the inclement winter weather.  Simon prepared good courses to BOF standards that offered both physical and technical challenges whilst minimising simple path running.  Most competitors appreciated the challenge, though bracken/brashings and the snowy conditions slowed the par times.  Rob had plenty of willing helpers who did their bit on a cold day.  Lastly I hope that Clive Wilkinson makes a speedy recovery from his accident near the Finish.
