North Island Champs Survey

12 April 2013 8:10am

A huge thank you to everyone who came last weekend to what was the biggest NISS meet for some time. We had tremendous fun hosting you. It was a very exciting weekend of athletics with new records set and wonderful examples of good sportsmanship and team spirit. We felt very blessed that the weather, while hardly tropical, was better than forecast.

Our Athletics Wairarapa organising committee is currently undertaking a 360 review of the event and in particular, a root cause analysis of the difficulties experienced with the timing/recording system. We regret that despite best efforts, these difficulties could not be resolved in a timely manner, resulting in unacceptable delays for athletes and disruption to scheduling, particularly on Saturday afternoon. In compiling a detailed report, we hope to better understand the issues, and share the learning. Another expected outcome of our review will be the creation of an organisers’ NISS Handbook for our use next year, and for future event organisers.

To assist us with the 360 review, we have created this survey.

We would appreciate it if you could distribute this survey widely to athletes, team managers, coaches, officials, parents and spectators. A good cross-section of feedback would really help us to evaluate what went well, what could be done better, and what could be developed to further enhance the experience for everyone and promote the sport.

Thanks to those who have already fed back ideas for consideration – these have ranged from wider entry gates and a disability ramp, to having a local accommodation ‘go-to’ person to help negotiate accommodation for visiting teams.

Please take the time complete the online survey or if you prefer, contact me directly on 06 377 4959, 027 273 1154 or at arnoppstringer@gmail.com

Thanks for your participation!
