AB commented that at previous 2 events people seemed to have planning done and then sat around chatting an waiting to start... so he trimmed the planning time a bit!
It was easy to plan the previous event once you decided it was possible to get the lot because the points become irrelevant.
yep , definitely easy when you plan to clear the course.
I see it as one of the big key differences between traditional O and Rogaine, so should be a significant part of it. If the map is big enough then the course should need careful planning and plenty of time allowed for those that want to use it.
