What about having a map of a Vocational Education Camp ?

VECs could be a new suite of mapping projects - like our Sport and Rec camps here.

Wouldn’t be the most uncrossable uncrossable fences I’ve seen on an O map - one of the boundaries of the old map for the JWOC 1991 Long was the Berlin Wall. (The JWOC course itself had a ruined watchtower as a control site).

A real control site!

Apparently, owning a compass or a tent would get you there. If this was Australia, l would certainly be amongst friends. Scary stuff.

Probably explains why the Xtrail AR was cancelled at the start line last year after running in both 2016 and 2017 - government officials found out that team members owned compasses.

I don't know if the Chinese teams did, they just followed the officials leading them to the checkpoints (they were all manned).

Okay that's low, in the 2016 race we were definitely guided to a CP by a CP marshal. Think they were getting concerned by just how long we were out there for (we weren't the last team on course but we were the last to complete the full course).

I heard reports from the World Cup middle distance that one of the control officials was being more conspicuous than they should have been, but that they were not discriminating between countries in their conspicuousness.
