Organiser’s Comments

Everything seemed to go well for our first event of the new season. The weather was far better than expected or forecast, and the majority certainly seemed to enjoy themselves. There were a few comments about how physical the courses were, but the planner made the best of the terrain available. My thanks to the usual suspects – Mark as planner and Graham as controller, the CLARO helper teams, Alastair Harvey from Yorkshire Water and the British Canoe Union for the use of their facilities.

There were two items found in the assembly area: an Army issue green towel and a reasonably old pair of sunglasses. Contact me if you wish to claim them.

Controller’s Comments

Hanging Moor was a beautiful place to be today, chiefly due to the glorious weather. The terrain varies between lovely runnable paths and moorland to steep and rough slopes with plenty of vegetation. There was always going to be a tricky ascent for all courses through the felled slope at the beginning. I think Mark did a great job in getting the courses through this without too much difficulty for competitors. The other area that competitors seemed to struggle with was the woodland inside the deer fencing; although the map could do with some improvement in this area, it was generally a lovely bit of wood and was well worth using.
