My first attempt at organizing seemed to go very well due to my experienced band of helpers who got on with everything like clockwork. The job seemed very easy perhaps due to the disappointingly low numbers but the weather helped by not raining until we had managed to take the tents down.
I would like to thank Robert Williams the landowner for once again
allowing us to use his lovely estate and I hope that everyone who came
Thanks again to all the helpers without whom we couldn't hold events.
|Rod Mansel - SUFFOC|
Not counting the summer series event at Finborough a couple of months ago, this was my first attempt at planning, which I found enjoyable. I would particularly like to thank controller Clive for his much appreciated help and guidance, and Rod for stepping in as an organiser, as well as the rest of the team who made the day run smoothly. I am not sure if it was a help or a hindrance to have husband and wife team as organiser and planner! However it all seemed to go smoothly.
I heard mostly positive comments about the courses, and people seemed to either love or hate the long leg on the green course from north west corner of the map to the south east; but I felt it made more interesting route choice. Also on the green the proximity of the purple lines in the centre of the map, probably made it a bit messy. I was hoping to be able to leave the gate between control 122 and the finish open as I had been told that the sheep would be on the other side of the entrance road; so people could sprint to the finish. As the sheep were in the main park, we were unable to leave any gates open.I was disappointed with the low numbers, particularly on the yellow and orange courses. It is such a shame as Haughley Park is such a lovely area. Thanks very much to Robert Williams for giving us permission to use his land again.
|Sarah Mansel - SUFFOC|
It was a pleasure to work with Sarah and Rod. We had some nicely planned courses, an organisation that coped admirably and even managed to clear the park just before the rain arrived.
We had taken a considered risk by setting up the courses on the
Saturday. This enabled me to check out control placements without the
As always there was some banter at the download tent as those
returning discussed where they had experienced "challenges" whilst out
Hope you all will come again to the next SUFFOC event in Rendlesham Forest on October 2nd.
