Organiser's Comments

What a great day; wonderful weather and loads of enthusiastic juniors combined to make the 2008 JST a great event. Thanks to Kate and Ali Robertson for planning and to Maureen Brown for Controlling. Thanks also to Bill & Anne Stevenson, Robin Strain and all the parent helpers who helped on the day and who helped round up and coach the juniors. We had 165 runners, which I understand is a record number. Congratulations to Maroc, Gramp and FVO for coming first second and third respectively. Maroc entered a record number of 44 juniors and have done a great job in encouraging juniors into our sport.

Two things made this event a success in my book Ė one was the fantastic weather (you should have been there the day before), and the other was all the happy smiling faces of the large number of juniors. Itís great to see the numbers taking part in this competition go on increasing year after year. I have to confess that I was a little concerned when I saw the large number of juniors entered on the yellow courses (73). The courses were planned to the guidelines, with no concessions made to this being a junior-only event and most legs having two decision points.  Also there was not the usual security of yellow course maps being issued beforehand at assembly to allow juniors and their parents/coaches a preview of the course. In spite of this, most of the juniors completed their course in very good times Ė a credit to the coaching they have received from their parents and clubs.  However, they were all issued with their map at minus one and given help with folding and setting it, not so easy for small hands and a waterproof map.

St Magdalene Hill has not been used before for a large event as far as Iím aware, and the parking proved a challenge, but it provided an ideal assembly area and the complex network of paths and variety of terrain allowed Ali and Kate to plan challenging courses.  It was interesting to hear the Green course runners in particular discussing their route choices, especially on legs 10 and 12.  Apologies to those who failed to find the gap in the gorse bushes in the open pasture (presumably now overgrown) which Iím afraid I hadnít checked out. 

Thanks to all the club captains for encouraging their juniors to take part.  Hope to see you all again next year Ė on the 21st June somewhere near Perth.

  14/09/2008 23:40Spoke too soon. A recalculation gives these slightly different points. I will check in the morning
  15/09/2008 20:25Checked and now final - I think.
