Simplification

Effectively these are permanent courses, except that perhaps maps and choice of controls for a particular purpose may not be available other than at certain "events". Most of the rogaines I've been involved in have semi-permanent features but if someone wanted to re-use it now, finding the map and the coresponding set of questions would not be easy. I wonder what the answer to this is?

Here's a little one, but every little bit counts. Do away with written control descriptions. This month's CompassSport discusses this in "Controller's Conundrum".

Now been to the event that I talked about in May - entering with a simple email. As before, it was extremely well organized. The event center was a camping ground completely taken over by the event, with good facilities including a bar. 3 of the 5 days were in the forest immediately surrounding, with the finish right in the camp. PA system, music, beer relay, etc etc. Most impressive was a set of national flags hung above the corner of a small lake - including the NZ one.

I wouldn't say that a simple email is an organised process!

You have to watch those powerpole numbered events as often the poles are numbered sequentially along the street. It is then possible to check a couple then count down to the circled spot and work out the number without actually visiting "the control".

OK those newer SI sticks hold your details but what if I'm distance hunting and change my classes all the time?
