Thought I’d share a few comments that have come to me in emails so far:
Just a quick line to say thanks to you and your team for being brave enough to keep the event on. It was a bit wild at times but worth it. I feel sorry for those collecting controls in. Well done.
On behalf of the club (WSX), I’d like to say a big thank you for organising the event, accommodating our entry method request, and keeping us well informed with the weather situation. It wasn’t so bad running in it but thank you to all your volunteers who had to stand around in those conditions. Most people enjoyed their runs, and I haven’t heard any major complaints about the map or controls, which is a rarity! Well done all.
Just wanted to pass on my thanks and that of everyone at WIM to yourself and the whole QO team for an excellent event today. We recognize how much work is involved especially hosting the CSC qualifier and all the extra admin this entails - it is very much appreciated!
Congratulations to all at QO for putting on such a successful weekend of orienteering. I am sure the competitors would like to thank all involved for the sterling efforts both before and on the day. Despite the weather, the Day Two courses were well received and enjoyed by many. Its adverse conditions that test an organisation but all went well. The resilience and good humour of the volunteers was inspiring. I do hope all involved in the promotion and delivery of the event enjoyed their experience and we are back in the truly outstandingly beautiful Quantocks for more competition in the not too distant future.
SBOC would like to say a huge thank you to Quantock Orienteers for putting on a great event in wet and windy circumstances. The assembly site with shelter was ideal and the forests challenging. Many thanks from all of us.
Many thanks to you and all helpers for putting on yesterday’s event in adverse conditions.
Just wanted to thank you and Quantock Orienteers for a great weekend of orienteering. I managed to run all three of the events you put on and really enjoyed them all. Even the weather on Sunday didn’t put me off.
Thanks to you and QO for an excellent event yesterday. Despite the miserable weather everything ran smoothly, the courses were good and the results were promptly available. What more could we competitors ask for? I was concerned for you when the weather forecast deteriorated. During my run, I barely noticed the wind and even the rain was not continuous. It was definitely the right decision to go ahead, but then that is easier to see with hindsight. I hope we did not do too much damage to the campsite’s grass and they allow you back again.
Just a short note to thank you and the team for an excellent event on Sunday. I thought the organisation and layout was first class and I thoroughly enjoyed my run in the rain.
