The Hayes were in beautiful condition for orienteering and there was a good turn-out with plenty of interest from newcomers. Particular thanks to Karin and Andy who spent lots of time explaining things, and some of the newcomers even went on to do both the Yellow and Orange course.
With little undergrowth, there was good running throughout which produced some fast times on all courses. At least, that is, for those on blue who managed to find the old icehouse without losing time. It was quite difficult to spot coming down the hill which, of course, is why it was used as a control site. There is a surprising amount of climb in the Hayes, so an extra Green course was added to the normal Saturday format to give a less physical technical option (less being the operative word as there was still 135m of climb). It was the most popular course on the day so obviously well received.
Thanks to Aleks for helping me to collect the controls at the end. I was even surprised, when collecting the controls, that they seemed to be exactly where they should have been! The day’s only sour point was the failure of two EMITs (5% of those hired) which, as often seems the case, were hired by regular orienteers from other clubs. My apologies to them on behalf of OD.
Thanks everyone for coming along. See you at the next Saturday event.
