Thanks for the write up, It's good to have your (entertaining) write ups back on.
It seems orienteering is at a disadvantage when it comes to promoting our MTBO events. Many regular MTB events I see advertised involve the promotion of beer, which seems to be a crowd pleaser. Even when we were checking into the caravan park on Friday and mentioned we were there for the XCO, the first thing the camp manager said to us was 'Happy hour at the pub is from 5-6'. We're not allowed to promote alcohol consumption with our sport!
