Wow, that was quick - I wasn't really expecting a response on a Sunday evening!
Alan Pucill - Treasurer of NGOC 2021
I wanted to let you know that Dave and I are moving back home to Australia next month, so thought I'd take the opportunity to thank you both for all the help you have given me
year after year when I've used Fabian4 for DFOK events. It has always been a pleasure working with you as I stumble along, so thank you!
Sheralee Bailey - Organiser of DFOK events until 2020
Many thanks for your help in managing entry for our Hens Wood orienteering event on Sunday 18 October. All went well with registration and we were lucky on the day
to have lovely weather, good humoured competitors and a supportive landowner. Your contribution was much appreciated and was a big factor in the delivery of a successful event.
Andrew Law - Organiser of the NWO Local Score - Hens Wood 2020
The Fabian4-RaceTek units were easily attached to the stakes so that we could position ourselves a good 2 metres away from competitors.
A real success for a Covid-19 compliant event. Most importantly, it was a joy to see so many happy competitors in a safe environment.
Judith Jones - Race Marshal at the Gladstone 9 Fell Race (Time Trial) 2020
Adrian, all sorted now. I am very grateful for your swift and very helpful replies. You went beyond what should be expected. Many thanks.
Bill Hanley - The Edge Local orienteering event entrant 2020
Thanks for the smooth running of the Cheshire Ring 2019 entries and prompt answers to queries. As ever an excellent service.
John Kavanagh - Organiser Cheshire Ring Canoe Race 2019
I would just like to personally thank you for your efforts yesterday.
All the comments we received about the timing have been positive.
Once again many thanks for your patience with us, your observations and your professionalism.
Tony Vout - Race director of the Round Donny Run 2019
Thanks so much. We’ve been very happy indeed with Fabian4. Everything’s been clearly explained and you’re super speedy to respond (do you ever sleep?!).
Madeleine Rogers - organiser of The Hathersage Hurtle 2019
A BIG Thank you for your help, I will use you for all my entries in the future.
John Starkey - High Ash orienteering event entrant 2018
We had a super weekend and, with your Start Time Slot spreadsheet, we were able to manage the entries on the day very efficiently.
Very many thanks for all your help.
Bridget Hooper - organiser of the Sunny Sussex Orienteering Weekend 2018
Tip top service. Can’t recommend you guys highly enough to all RO’s out there. It was like being in London Marathon HQ watching everything happening through
the computer. Thanks both again.
Ruth Pickvance - Organiser of the Llanbedr to Bleanavon Fell Race 2018
Ha ha, sorry Adrian, you seem so lovely and friendly I assumed it was you who'd organised it too!
Faye Chamberlain - Bluebell Blunder entrant 2017
Just to say thanks for going the extra mile (pun intended) and ringing me to confirm I could have an entry when you got my Out of
Office from the email. Highly appreciated. Did the event yesterday and lived to tell the tale.
John Mackintosh - Kinder Downfall Fell Race entrant 2017
Wow - you're working late. Thank you. Excellent service.
Carl Benson – Kinder Downfall Fell Race entrant 2017
I hadn’t noticed the new online billing part of the system, but now I’m familiar with it, I think it is excellent.
Thank you once again for providing such an effortless system, it makes all our lives so much easier.
Simon Bateman – organiser of the Old Sodbury Scramble 2017
Well I suppose it's good that my stupidity will contribute towards making your system even more perfect than it already is!
Sheralee Dorling – Organiser of the DFOK Westerham Level B Event 2017
Just to let you know 4 new members to the club within the first couple of hours of putting the Fabian 4 info on FB!
Thanks to all involved for getting this system going!
Emma Green – Eryri Harriers Membership Secretary 2017
Once again thanks for an excellent entry system, beats all the others by miles.
Hilary Simpson – an orienteer and regular Fabian4 user (2016)
Both Michael Napier (MERCS results) and Adrian Moir (Fabian4 entry service) performed extremely well, liaising well with myself
and with each other. Adrian incorporated the British Orienteering ranking list into Fabian4 for the first time for this event. This significantly reduced the time taken to prepare the M/W35+ start times for seeded competitors ...
Andrew Evans - organiser of the British Middle Distance Orienteering Championship 2016
The big factor that stands out is the incredible value of the Fabian 4 online entry and Racetek.
Phenomenal value for a brilliant service from Adrian and Ellie. .....
So, I can't recommend Fabian4 more.
Matthew Roberts – Organiser of the Pedol Cwm Pennant 2016
A big thumbs up from all of us for the Fabian4 and Racetek services. We were all well impressed with the whole set up. The Racetek competitor tracking made the whole event more manageable and efficient and it was great to work with you both.
Brian Begg – organiser of the Caerphilly Challenge Series - The Forge 2016
Fantastic. Thank you for being so ultra efficient!!
Iris Moeller - Fen Drayton 10K and Fun Run entrant 2016
Fabian4 has been excellent, good job guys.
Jacqui Wynds – Organiser of the Forest of Dean Canicross Mad Dog Jog & A Half 2016
I don’t know what to say, other than you guys are simply the best!
Donna King – Company Secretary - Aspire Running Events Ltd (2015)
Many thanks for your excellent service and one we shall be carrying on with in the future.
Arwel Lewis – Organiser of the Four Lakes 30K 2015
I am in awe of your patience and attention to detail in supporting events -
really really love the Fabian 4 master spreadsheet of entrants and all their options for the event -
really helped keep track of things!
Gabriella Walsh – Organiser of the Welsh Orienteering Championships and VHI Weekend 2015
Thank you so much for being so efficient! Very much appreciated
Becca - Organiser of SWOA Galoppen League, Rodborough 2015
May I take this opportunity to thank Fabian for all their support
through the Winter Tanners. We had excellent and prompt service and
support. I am appreciative of your efforts and you have made the
administration of this event very straightforward. Yours in thanks
Richard Ireson - Winter Tanners 2015
Thank you once again for your super efficient service!
Simon Ling - Southern Champs 2015
We said last night that anyone who volunteers to organise an event should have the Fabian4
system as a compulsory item on their schedule.
Julie & Ronan Cleary - Co-organisers – LOK Holmbury Hill 2014
I would just like to say thanks for all the hard work you have done to help make the Championships a success.
We couldn’t have done it without you.
Andy Yeates – Organiser of the British Middle Distance Championships 2014
Magic - thanks for the super speedy resolution.
Marcus Shearer – Glen Moray Marathon 2014 entrant
I’d just like to thank you for the part you played in making the Lakes 5 Day
event a success. Although we pay for your service; what you deliver is excellent value.
I feel that you bend over backwards to support our competitors and our event
officials and I can heartily recommend you as a service.
Derek Allison – Co-ordinator Lakes 5 2014
Adrian - much precision, much appreciated. You really do have a very slick system.
David Roach - Northern Champs 2014
I do think yours is the ONLY event entry system worth a light!!!
(in fact it is brilliant).
Clare Fletcher 2013
... we looked at a few different options, eventually choosing Fabian 4, and have
been very impressed. Adrian and Ellie are very helpful and efficient, nothing is
too much of a problem, and the system works really well. It certainly lessens the burden
on the event secretary, feedback from competitors has been positive ……,
and entries also seem to come in quicker.
Rowan Jones - Hafren Dirt Bike Club 2013
Adrian, You are a star! Thank you for so much hard work.
Charlotte - Caddihoe Chase 2012
Wow! Thank you. Incredibly efficient!
Andrew Kelly – City of London Race 2012
Adrian, thanks for your help last night in making the extremely responsive
changes to our event! We are up and running, start times are now uploaded and fingers
crossed maps to be printed Tuesday.
Keith Tonkin – Guildford Orienteers (GO) entry secretary – 2012
Thank you very much for the decent handling, you and your system are as perfect as a premium Swiss watch – not so am I !
All the best of success and kind regards from
Hans-Peter Städelin – a Swiss Croeso 2012 competitor
We had a very successful day on Sunday with 481 runners. Thank you for providing the Fabian4 service - in particular,
the start time allocation was very good, and provided us with a nice spread, reducing the pressure on both the start team and the entry on the day team.
Les Hooper - Organiser Jubilee Orienteering Festival Sunday 2012
Speedy service – on a weekend! Thank you!
Jason Howell 2012
Thanks for very effective and modestly priced entry-handling service over the past two years.
I've received many positve comments from entrants and you've lightened my load no end!
Mike Vybiral - Organiser, Welland Wonders audax 2012
As the organiser of North Cheshire Clarion’s first Audax event I was looking for an
easy to use on line entry system with real people I could talk to if I needed help.
Fabian 4 ticked all the boxes and made the whole entry process pain free.
The entry fees go straight into our bank account with a monthly summary so it’s easy
to keep track and the entry data download was great for creating our mail shots.
Choosing Fabian 4 for our 2012 event was a no brainer.
Andrew Williams - Organiser of The Wizard and the Lamas Audax 2011 &
Thanks for your help. Tech support this late on a Friday night... fantastic
Rob McEvoy - Organiser of the Shamrock O-Ringen 2011 (Ireland)
Thanks very much for such a prompt response, especially on a bank holiday, much
Sarah Dawson - BOC 2011 competitor
Yes thanks the event went very well, despite the less than clement weather.
As this was my first event dealing with Entries and Download I was very impressed
with the ease of use of Fabian4 - congratulations on an excellent product.
Bob Nash - Entries Secretary - SROC Regional Hutton Roof 2011
Brilliant - Thanks Adrian -
First class service!!
Pat MacLeod - Organiser of the NGOC Knockalls 2010
Wow! Great service - thanks.
Stephen Horton - Organiser of the BOK Klub Champs 2010
Having just recovered from organising our Culbin event at the weekend, can I just
thank you for your great service at an amazing price. It all worked a treat
and your customer support is first class.
Mike Rogers – Organiser of the Moravin Orienteers Regional - Culbin West 2010
Why can't everybody use Fabian, much the best.
Thanks for your help. Only too pleased for you to include the testimonial.
Especially as a competitor Fabian doesn't need you to remember passwords, log on
to Paypal or anything like that. Yet it remembers the important information
of class. As an entries secretary the service is first class.
Mike Godfree - Derwent Valley Orienteers - 2010
Just a quick note to say thanks for your help and support during the entries process
for our event yesterday. Everything seemed to go very well and smoothly from
the entries point of view (which is less than can be said for the weather on the
Paul Nixon – SLOW OK Nuts 2009 Entries Team
At this point a warm and strong thank-you for your unbeatable level of support over
the last set long months.
David Nicol – Entries Secretary - Scottish 6 Days Tay 2009
I think I have said before that your system is by far the most user friendly.
Brian Hughes – HOC member - 2009
... I would like to add that your entry system has worked flawlessly from my point
of view and I feel that this year we are much better prepared and up to date.
David Relton – White Rose 2009 SI Team
Thank you so much for your outstanding work. You are simply brilliant!
Your online service was of tremendous help and we would highly recommend any organiser
to use it.
Roberta and Mike Wadsworth – Merchant Taylors' Triathlon 2009
I am amazed at your efficiency, for which I thank you so much.
Trevor Bridle - Wimborne Orienteers Treasurer 2009
Many thanks for the online entry service you provided for the above event.
It is a very impressive system and it saved us a lot of time with processing of
entries. The Bulk email facility is also very useful. I was a bit worried
at first about using the Export and Imports, convinced that I would somehow corrupt
the database. But the instructions are good and it turned out to be easy and
foolproof to use.
Neil Harvatt – HALO Londesborough Park 2009
Thanks very much for the refund - and really appreciate your messages about my baby
Very impressed by customer services of Triathlon Zone and Fabian4 - you wouldn't
get that sort of customer care on the bigger triathlon events.
Alistair Macdonald – Merchant Taylors’ Triathlon competitor – January 2009
Congratulations on providing a first class method of on-line entry for races.
I have recently used other on line entry systems and have found myself to be at
the best frustrated, and at the worst confounded to the point of giving up on my
Judith Jones – Eryri Harriers competitor 2008
Fabian4 is simple, quick and easy to use. I have used it on many occasions
and it works a treat. I can't think why you would use any other system!
Nick Barrable – Great Britain Orienteering Squad 2008
I have had lots of positive comments about the relay entry system which fully merited
the effort put in and comes highly recommended from me for next year. It reduced
the work on relay registration considerably. Without it I would have needed to draft
in more valuable resource.
Andrew Evans - Organiser JK Relays 2008
Impressively rapid service - Thanks
Dick Keighley – Yorkshire Pudding 2008 competitor (Requesting help with a problem
with his BOF data)
Just to say thanks so much for your email, its not too often you get that quality
of support nowadays, well done, keep up the good work.
Tom Conlon - JK 2008 Competitor
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent service in taking the
work out of processing entry information. I did find the system easy to handle
once I'd sorted out some minor problems and I shall certainly recommend Fabian for
our next big event.
Paul Taylor - Organiser of the CLOK Regional and Northern Championships 2008
Thanks for all the help with the system - it's been fantastic, and we hope to be
back next year!!
Jill Barnes - Entries Secretary & Treasurer Sandstone Trail Races 2007
As an event organiser, I don't think I would choose another entry system as Fabian4
offers such a wide range of entry options and extras, and the service is first class.
It actually makes organising an event easier.
As a competitor, I am always relieved to see Fabian4 is being used in a competition,
as I know I can enter quickly, and keep tabs on which events I have already entered.
Now I can even edit the entry when I find I have made a mistake or a member of the
family changes their minds about which class they want to run (which has happened
twice in the last week!).
Lynden Hartmann - Co-ordinator SinS 2007
Just wanted to thank you for the help you’ve given over the last few weeks. The
event was a real success with Baildon being besieged by orienteers yesterday morning
who looked severely knackered a few hours later. This success was largely down to
your efforts to make the online entry procedure as seamless as possible.
Simon Bowens - Organiser of the AIRE Long O 2007
Plenty of people are now saying how much better your solution is to any other......
I first used Fabian for the EPOC Marsden Moor event in March 2006. I decided
to use Fabian because I felt that this solution showed far more potential for development.
Adrian Moir has been extremely helpful & responsive throughout both in handling
the details behind our entries & in taking our requirements on board to develop
his solution. We had to cancel the Marsden Moor event in 2006 & re-run
it in 2007, whilst offering competitors a half price discount. The Fabian
system was adapted well to handle these needs. I’d say Fabian is now way ahead
of the competition in the service it provides & I’d happily recommend Adrian
Moir & Fabian.
Martyn Hodgson – Pre-entries, East Pennine Orienteering Club 2007
I made 2 entries and was very impressed with how easy the site was to use.
Philip Young – Mole Valley National Event competitor 2007
Your entry system is brilliant .......... I found your on line entry system easier
and better than anything else I use. It's great that all our details come
up automatically and its very straight forward to select age categories etc.
In particular we were impressed that Paul's new SI number came up - he replaced
his dibber before Christmas.
Shirley Wood – Marsden Moor Event competitor 2006
