Planner's comments

Thanks to all who attended the SOL event at Craig a Barns. It was a fair test of quality orienteering which inevitably led to a wide range of times for each course. A fairly typical spread of results that one would expect in a challenging area with the winning times in each class within the windows for SOL events.

I chose to start most courses at the top of the hill (literally) to eliminate the climb involved in each course. I hope the walk to the start was worth it. An unexpected turnout from the Swedish O squad led to some remarkable times on the longer courses that more than made up for the lack of vet orienteers who were absent due to the VHI.

The planning was geared round old fashioned long legs with an exciting array of route choices available. Congratulations to those that found the optimum routes. I felt the area merited a more traditional form of planning which added a bit of variety to our range of SOL events.

Thanks to all those who helped out, especially the controller and organiser.
