A highlight for me is the quarterly arrival of the (paper) "Australian Orienteer". As well as competition reviews and previews, it always contains a priceless collection of ideas about running our sport. I think the discipline of assembling pictures and maps to support a story produces something way better than an electronic sound-bite.

The latest contains: the morphing of assembly areas into "arenas"; Sydney Summer series celebrates 25 years (by expat kiwi Ross Barr); the addition of a Melbourne park/street championship to their huge series (what's the plural of series?); orienteering examples in outdoor centres and holiday parks; the "quiet-eye" mental skill in sports; course planning in MTBO; and for mappers the difference between large and small depressions and pits.
