Kedleston Park was a delight to be a first-time EM
League event planner, despite its technical limitations. After more than a
decade of starts and finishes in the northern part of the area, I chose to
relocate these to the south, which offered a fresh perspective on the area. The
biggest headache was devising courses to reduce the temptation of climbing
carefully-maintained fences, hence the predominance of purple lines and
crossing point symbols - not everyone's cup of tea. Hopefully this didn't
detract too much from the experience. Active clearances in the northern
enclosure also demanded some late changes for the longer courses. It was great
to see so many families out there. Grateful thanks to the time and advice
given by Stuart Swalwell, John Hurley, Andy Hawkins, as well as Jon Lewney of
the National Trust.
Constructive comments good or bad are welcome to email address below.
We are concerned at the number of entry forms with no safety information
completed nor who is shadowing children.
You don’t think anything will happen to you. Obviously Kedleston
on a nice day was unlikely to be a problem and of course you will remember to
come to download but if we have too many people not accounted for we might miss
starting a search for someone who really is injured out there.
