Nice! This one could even start a meme theme of its own:

Haha nice one! Can I count that as one of my days lazydave? Touch and go whether I'll make it... Running low on ideas...

Nope. Dont worry I reckon you've been running low on ideas for a while

Larry :
could do a trent reznor cameo week if you wanted to open it up to his solo work. gives you the opportunity to use soundtrack from "the social network" too (pretty sure he wrote that score?)
Feb 15, 2016 9:59 PM # 
yeah he did, won an oscar for it too.

But its the #NIN3Days not the reznor 3 days (though I guess you could argue they are the same thing).

Also, there are no lyrics on the score so it wouldn't help much!

I assume 25 was on a feature erected by the mapper or the course setter?

A fridge with beer in it?

Thanks lazydave, knowing you're enjoying them makes it all worthwhile ;)

I have used the Gone Girl score which, like The Social Network, was also by Reznor & Atticus Ross....

Keep going Craney!

Here's a test: track 7 from the social network, called...

Fuck yeah

I don't get it, that course looks really nice. Teaser of a route choice to 30.

...the control description for which really should be: "between the nipples" but I don't think there's an IOF symbol to match.

I really want some trifle
Feb 17, 2016 5:16 AM # 
Me too. Not all that keen to go orienteering in the UK though.

Larry :
is the number for #36 covering the circle for #33 in that last one?
Feb 17, 2016 7:53 PM # 
No it's covering #32
Feb 17, 2016 8:57 PM # 
Larry :
ah right that's ok then
Feb 18, 2016 12:56 AM # 
It's okay; it's only the British Champs. It's not like that feature was important.

To be fair, those images are lifted from routegadget rather than the actual competition maps but let's not let that get in the way of poking fun at the mediocrity of British Orienteering.
Feb 18, 2016 1:38 AM # 
So it's my understanding from reading this thread that Britain only has two maps and one sheep. Does that about sum it up?
Feb 18, 2016 1:47 AM # 
Pretty sure that sheep was plastic - does that count?
Feb 18, 2016 1:58 AM # 
It looks happy to be part of the excitement.
Feb 18, 2016 1:59 AM # 
Be fair - 2 maps, 1 plastic sheep AND Graham Gristwood.

I was talking to a lady at the Scottish 6-Days who kept saying "It's Not Nooormal" about having to climb steep hillsides and cross rushing mountain streams, because there's nothing like that where she goes orienteering in the south of England!
(I did explain that in Australia it's not normal to have ANY water in our rivers...)
Feb 18, 2016 3:43 AM # 
Britain has a lot more than two maps, it's just that most of them are in bits of Britain which aren't sure whether they want to stay being bits of Britain.

If you go to the novice briefing at any of our WA rogaines, the instructor has to explain 'Now a watercourse is a place where water would flow, if there was any water...'
