Curious to know why time went backwards on the second-last leg on the long for some of us. The printout on the day had a cumulative time for the (last) control but no split time; Winsplits appears to have a corrected story in italic digits.

near that second to last control we found the fourth dimension - time actually stood still within a 4m radius! watches went funny and so did compasses.

later this week we will be ging back to the map with a geologist to investigate.

Great to see CMOC putting on red standard orienteering for the relays instead of orange which the rules insist on. When is this ever going to change to what the vast majority want.
On another note whatever were you thinking Robbie when you put fences on the classic map to try and make it orange instead of red for many legs. I don't know if it is a rule or not but traditionally in NZ we leave fences off so it's not so easy.

Great weekend.

The fences thing was disappointing, especially given the importance of the race as a JWOC trial.

Can anyone work out why I was 23 degrees off on my compass bearings in the sprint?

Show Profile  Martin Posted: 10 April 2007, 11:01 PM  
suunto compasses have that problem when you run too fast

It was a great weekend of orienteering with varied kinds of terrain.

Martin - What lesson should PAPO learn?
We got out names to Unni by 10 days before (and were told pity, others couldn't be more efficient so I don't think we were the last?) and we got our revised names in by 2pm the day before.
Did we miss a deadline? I do know that I checked on the website, before I put our teams into Unni, for what the conditions were for the middle leg and found NO W20-35. I checked because I was suspiscious about the entry form with the comma and it seemed weird to not allow M18-50 but to only exclude elite women. I didn't want to find it because I wanted to run in our first team! I can't find that now but I know I didn't imagine it as Carsten and I checked and discussed it together. What is the actual rule for middle leg?

With grid north and magnetic north thing, I'm just glad it answers the question for me as to why I was confused on the way to the second to last. My aim had been to be careful so I was a bit disappointed in myself for being off like that. Thanks for giving me an excuse!

I agree with the taking off the fence thing. Apparently John asked the Finns and I guess it was hard to go against with what they said. Scandis aren't used to it but it's a necessity in NZ if we want to have more technically challenging areas. Still I managed to make "a go to the wrong control" kind of mistake anyway!

Looking forward to this weekend for more great O!
