Organisers Comments

The weather provided a pleasant change after last month's challenging event - finally it's starting to feel like spring. A big thank you to The Open University for letting us use their facilities and run through their grounds. An excellent turnout with plenty of familiar faces and some new ones too. I heard nothing but praise for Freya's courses, any minor glitches with the map are down to me. Finally thanks to the team of SMOC helpers who enable the event to run so smoothly that I even managed a run myself.

Planners Comments

I really enjoyed planning this Keyne-O and what a contrast in weather conditions to last month's event! I don't think I could have hoped for better weather than we had today (apart from the wind blowing everything around!). It was great to be able to make use of some of the Open University grounds for the first time. It gave us lots of new interest for the courses and even a re-entrant to use as a control site! For the longer courses, this area offers lots of scope for route choice with the bridges across the river, field boundaries and the quiet residential area of Woughton on the Green. I hope you all enjoyed making those choices and catching up on those who didn't make such good choices as you! The boardwalk through Walton Lake added interest to the courses and the new area of paths between thickets just behind the lake seemed to catch a few people out. Finally, thank you to Steve for more planning mentoring and to Richard for helping me to collect in the controls.
