Planner’s & Organiser’s Comments
The second run on this map seemed to be appreciated. From a planning perspective the main interest is the problem posed by the railway line – especially the level crossing. From the previous start in the centre of the map the level crossing only comes into play for the runners on the 75minute course. We aimed to minimise the potential loss of time by giving competitors the rail timetable – which worked well but Mike Ormerod claims to have lost 4 minutes!
We selected a new venue which seemed to be successful from a social, refeshements and smoke-free perspective. However there is always a downside - limited local eateries and the hire fee of £30 which together with the refreshments and maps meant a small loss for this event with a total income of only £35.
Comments on the new SROC web forum suggest at least one participant liked this format – what do the rest of you think? On a more general note we have been particpating in street events since the very early 1980s and the entry fee has remained at £1 despite our move from public car parks, towards inside venues and the use of more ‘professional’ maps. Comments on what you prefer as always to the Street Supremo – Ian Evans.
Congrats to street ‘novice’ Sarah Fulwood on both coming to grips with the borrowed light and deposing the usual victorious Roomes in the 30-60 class. If she turns up more frequently next season, having relocated yet again to the heart of SROCland she would be bookmaker’s favourite for the most promising newcomer.
Further down this class we had the tension of who would turn out on top in the battle of the Greenwood pairings. This time a slight advantage to the ‘youngsters’ Liam and Linda. Becca Roberts reckons her dad Chris can’t run fast enough these days but he turned up the speed to gain a clear victory over Karen Nash. In the 75minutes class, Ali showed everyone a clean pair of heels getting 17 out of the 20 possible 40 & 50 pointers – continuing his record of always doing well at Ferguson events. Not doing so well was Ed Mellor who misread the map and decided to go straight over an uncrossable field. He started well enough until he mistook an ice covered ditch for a path and disappeared up to his armpits in rather cold water.
Thanks to Paul Turner who turned up to help despite being unable to compete on the night because of his exploits at the British Night Championships the previous Saturday.
Glenys and Paul
Congratulations to Ali for his third win, and to Chris Roberts, Moz Kitching and John Ashton for achieving their best performances of the season. Karen, Glenys and Team Roome now have unassailable leads, but each of the mens age groups could go to the wire, requiring another top performance to clinch the titles.
Can I repeat the request for feedback on all aspects of the Street Events and scoring system. I certainly found this venue superb, and was surprised how much more circulation went on than at a pub après-event. Did anyone move on to the pub ? Several coffees and a couple of biscuits, before the locusts cleared up, must
have been better for my diet than beer and Peter’s crisps and significantly cheaper – so I felt guilty.
Paul Turner has done some homework on weatherproof paper which I will circulate for comments. How did he know Edward was interested in scuba street O ?
