Ever tried reading the sprint map reduced to 1:7500?
They say they'll get it fully remapped later this year...

TBH I don't mind maps that are reduced as for me it's more about consistency and "getting into the map". I kept having to turn over the map to see the features which I had used earlier which weren't on the 1:7,5k map. Although I struggled with a 1:15k map at the JK at Wass last year I've got a magnifier on my compass now. Also I suppose I'm still young enough (just?) to have good eye sight to see all the extra features on a reduced map.

Nice course though and the play equipment "top off" caught me out. Not sure about the need for #33 on the Brown though! One of these days there might be a control at/near the top.....hint hint!!!
