If you enjoyed today's event, make sure the next SOC Saturday on 12 February at Royal Victoria Country Park is on your calendar.
Congratulations to all of those of you who even made it out the door this morning! For most of the week, the forecast for Saturday has shown heavy rain and, sadly, for once it was accurate. I hope this, and the mud that accompanied it, didn't dampen your enjoyment of the event. My thanks go to all those who prolonged their exposure by helping to run the event: Christine, Emma, Steve, Julian, Terry, Mark, Andrew, Vicki, Helen, Barry, Rachel, and Jonny, and to Duncan for putting up with my feedback on his courses! Now let's just hope the forecast for Sunday is also accurate and some of the kit starts to dry out again...
Thank you all for coming out in the rain today and braving the mud! I hope everyone enjoyed the courses and didn't get too wet, as the weather was not kind. Trying to fit the longer courses into the area was a bit of a challenge but I managed to reach the distance without too many loops and crossovers. I would also like to thank all the helpers who made the event possible and braved the cold and rain of Southampton: especially David Currie, my Dad, the organiser who gave me much needed advice when planning the courses. I hope any newcomers to orienteering enjoyed the event and are hungry for more; hope to see you again soon.
Cheers for all the support!
