We had a very wet evening with heavy showers and gusting winds. The first activity was to test each participant’s pacing ability. Follow a predetermind line on the map from a starting point and then pace accurately to a control site marked on the map. Participants were issued with personal pacing scales (double paces per 100m on a 1:2500 scale). We had a variety of results from 70% correct to (I think the ‘coach’s’ legs must be getting shorter).
This was followed by 4 courses on the maze (attached) in the pouring rain. Was I proud of our tough and resilient orienteers. Thanks to you all for collecting in the equipment. Once you had all left, the sun came out and I collapsed – the ‘sun canopy’ which kept me dry, and then trundled home for a hearty meal.
Neil was kind enough to lend his maze to us one of which you can see here in the results. A more complex MAZE (apparently) awaits those who travel to Beverley on Monday for Brian Ward’s end of term (Beverley Club Night) event. Not to be missed.
