The next event is our Keyne-O event at Caldecotte Lake on Sunday 14th August. Details will be on our website nearer the time.
You can subscribe to our Events on Facebook so you'll be one of the first to know about any upcoming event.
It was a grey morning, but the rain just about held off to allow an enthusiastic crowd to enjoy Ian's tour of picturesque Great Linford. The fun was enhanced by the addition of Freya's Maze O, which gave the chance for newcomers to hone their navigation technique, and experience electronic timing.
A huge thankyou goes to our crowd of willing volunteers: Rachel, Jo, Krisztina and family, Wendy, Alec, Tasha, the Pembery family, Haydn, Charles, Ros. Karen and Steve. Such a large turnout meant that everyone who wanted a run got one, and made our job so much easier.
As SMOC club nights are often held in Great Linford, itís an area of Milton Keynes that I know quite well, so it was a pleasure to be able to plan a Keyne-O event there. With two events in the area last year, I took a positive decision not to refer back to the earlier courses, but to plan "cold", visiting some of the more interesting features on the map. Hopefully this led to a fresh selection of controls, without any duplication from previous events.
Iím sorry that control 12 on the Run went missing; it wasnít hidden behind the Audi but had been at the end of the marked fence, where the path was too narrow for a car (even my Smart Car) to block the control. I replaced the control as soon as we knew it had been stolen, but suspect that several runners were affected. As always Iíd like to thank my colleagues - Ann and Debbie for organising me; Robert for controlling from afar (and ensuring that Hassall and Lucking did their usual excellent printing job); Karen for coordinating the series, and Freya for also planning three micro-courses - in the maze! And thank you, everyone, for coming for a run on a day when there was so much sport on TV - thereís nothing more dispiriting than planning courses that no-one turns up to run.
