It was great to see so many of you at today’s event.  I’m sorry if some had to wait for a recycled map or dibber.  I also apologise to earlier finishers who were told they had mis-punched at number 5.  The box here had failed early in the morning and been replaced.  I had forgotten to tell the computer we had done this, so it is all my fault not yours.

We and British Orienteering are conducting a survey over a few of our events to see how we could do things better.  It would be very useful if you would complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/HQP2ZBQ

If anyone has a query on the results please contact me via the club’s contact form.

A Big thank you to all those that helped to make this a great day out at Ashton Court. It was certainly an overwhelming turnout and we quickly ran out of maps for the predicted numbers. I am sorry that I had to beg so many maps for recycling when I was stationed at the Finish flag but I have asked for the "PDF copy of the full set of maps" to be available here with the results so that you can have a copy if you want.
 
It was great to see so many young runners enjoying the day and also many novice adults appreciating the event and the fun it gave them. I do hope you all will be enthused  to orienteer again and hopefully join BOK our great club.....   As this was a supposedly small event, I had not planned a blue course and the challenge for the Green  was to make it sufficiently challenging in an area which is also familiar to many. So I tried to add in some tricky choices and a few traps to keep you on your toes. It was satisfying to find from your post-run comments that the effort was appreciated. There was one control and leg on the green course that was in retrospect too entangled with the bike track. I had not been in that area of the course on a Sunday to appreciate the potential conflict of interest there. Thanks to those that commented and I hope it was not too much of an issue.
