Controllers comments:
Promising sunshine at 6.30 a.m when three of us set off to put out some 40 controls. All placed and woken up by 9.30 a.m.
Using the South east Start meant courses plunged into the complex wooded area straight away. Careful navigation and good attack points were needed here and longer courses came back to it later just to further test your navigation.
Congratulations to Neil and Mary for stepping up to be planners.
Thanks to those who mentioned that they had found possible extra features. We made a note of them to pass on to the mappers. On an area as complex as this, it’s a seemingly endless task.
Please consider stepping up yourself to these vital jobs. Us M75 Controllers find it very lively, even with a mountain bike, to race round all controls before 10 a.m.  This would be an even bigger task at dark winter events.
West Midlands is fortunate to put on courses for Planners, Controllers, and Organisers- look out for the next ones.

Night-O Results – Milford & Highfields

Mark Garside and Jonathan Howell organised the latest 2 races of the night-O league in Milford and Highfields, Stafford.  It’s very close at the top of the table, with just 3 points separating the first 4 runners.  Here are the results so far, arranged as best of 5 as there are 7 events in this half season. 2018_Street_O @ 10 Mar

Brindley Heath Results

We offer our sincere apologies for the problems on the courses today with missing controls / controls in the wrong place. The problem has been traced to a previous version of both the map and course planning files being used for printing (see maps below for more detail). A particular sorry to those new to orienteering who struggled on Orange and Light Green – please do not let this experience put you off.

The controller and organiser feel the best solution to the issue is to let the results stand as best as they can be published for the day, however that the event is voided from a West Midland League and National Ranking Point view. A decision on the WCH club championships will be taken once the results have been processed..

Apologies again, we hope that at least the beautiful weather made up for it a little.

Results are here

The results have had no legs removed – just missed controls credited but it is possible to see time lost in the splits.

Below the two versions of the all controls map for those that want to see where the issues affected them……
