Wimbledon Common Night-O Results

Planning

Thanks for braving the weather. Thanks also to Don, Gordon, Paul C, Sue, Duncan & Paul S for helping. Please volunteer to help at the next ones if you can. I wanted to use the south-west corner for a change given we had the southern start. I tried to have the short course relatively easy to start then getting a bit harder in the middle. For the long course the middle loop was quite challenging. Well done for being up to it.

Lost Property

I have one green bag left in the pub with a black thermal, gloves etc in it. It looks like it could be a military bag of some sort. If it’s yours please contact Don ( )

Organiser’s comments

Thanks to everyone who came along to the event last night for what were perfect conditions for an autumn night event. I found out that I had put the last control in slightly the wrong place, 15 metres from the correct pit I had taped a few weeks back so apologies and hope that did not ruin anyone’s run!

Thanks also to my very able team of volunteers on the night, Todd and Don for helping set up registration, Paul C., Paul S. and Steve for helping at the start and Sarah and Pete for sorting out the SI with myself. Also to Sue for offering to help. Hope to see you all at the next Night orienteering event which is Tuesday 27th November on Wimbledon Common.
