These  results are abstracted from the full EMIT results which  appear on the EMIT website.



What a great day it was with the weather just right for orienteering. I feel that Mike Furlongs courses were very good indeed and made the very best use of the areas interesting parts, especially down in the south west corner of the map.

There were many changes from wooded to open and back and sufficient features to give plenty of interest. Some of those gullies are maneaters! Winning times were fast particularly on the longer courses in spite of the roughness of the area. The open wastes of the tank tracked areas were in fact relatively dry.

The organisation seemed to flow well and the Wimborne ‘regulars’ coped well with, to them, the unfamiliar use of EMIT. The planner and the controller were definitely in favour of EMIT for their functions with the simplified ‘putting out’ system. So, a thank you to WIM and BAOC for their efforts on the day, and of course to WSX and BAOC for the previous days night event.
