Frickley Challenge Weekend

10th July 2005

This new site was a bit of an unknown quantity prior to the event leaving the event officials with a bit of a headache when it came to the format of Sunday's event.The site's size made it difficult to run an orienteering challenge like Weardale whilst, at the same time, it would be difficult to get enough sections for a full trial. In the end it was decided that we would make it half and half with 6 trials sections and 12 orienteering punches.

So, on Saturday, while those who came for the driving day explored all the holes, mud runs and hills that the site has to offer Matthew and Tim set out the trials sections and placed the punches. One of the punches was, as it turns out, later moved from the side of the pond to it's centre by some local kids... kudos (as well as wet feet) to those competitors who were game enough to attempt the punch in it's new position !

The event format seemed to work well and is one that we may well use again in the future. Thanks to all those who officiated and marshalled the event, particularly Richard Spencer who spent all day parked in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of a heatwave, checking the orienteering competitors in and out of the control area.
