Fences on Elites Maps

Show Profile  mal g Posted: 16 June 2007, 2:04 PM  
Due to the Sensitive nature of this topic perhaps it would be prudent with the onset of the OY season to suggest an alternative? How about the elite orienteer getting the printed list of control descriptions and control numbers only - and setting off to find the said controls - all with NO map at all , no contours, no fences, no vege boundaries , then there will be no arguements - and how about the discussion afterwards regarding route choice - just Amazing i reckon

You are a trouble maker mr gawn.

Control descriptions?

Surprisingly generous. Just let them run around blindly punching any control they see, and whoever gets the closest to collecting all of the course in the right order wins.

Or better yet, give them a map, with all the features, and all the controls correctly located in terms of their relative positions to each other. Just happens to be a map of another area alltogether. How are those compass skills?

Best variation (and somewhere like Woodhill you could probably get away with it) is you don't tell them they have the wrong map. Think of the fun of listening in on the post-mortems: "things didn't look right around that control... or that one... or that one..." and be interesting to see who stubbornly claimed to have navigated perfectly into every control.

"and be interesting to see who stubbornly claimed to have navigated perfectly into every control"
