At least it wasn't a broad spur. We had a couple of those on the weekend.

Was the bridge your #12? I saw that CP on Oing's course and saw three people run in and then out, back around and in but the map looks like it's just an undercover area.

Yeah, and other courses had a similar 'bridge' control on the next building to the east. I'm always a bit uncertain whether it's ok to use as a control description a feature which is different from that on the map, but I guess if they'd mapped a bridge it would have just ended up looking like a pair of impassable walls...

My own fault for running to the bottom of the stairs in the courtyard instead of realising that the control was on the narrow paved area alongside them which turned out to be at the level of the top of the stairs - but again, I don't think it was quite right to call that a 'path end'.

The proposed revisions to IOF control descriptions still don't completely solve the problem of how to describe some features as drawn in ISSOM!

Just put all the controls on boulders and half moons, I mean knolls.
