Certainly was a sustained performance, thank you - although singing might be a stretch :-).
Served to reinforce my rather cynical conviction that Orienteering, which to my mind is a pretty simple affair, has overdone the rules in an attempt to convince itself that it's a "real sport".
That said, it was useful to be updated on what we have to put up with when we dare to put a national event on our hallowed ground, so I'm sure we all appreciate the considerable effort you put in for us (on Saturday and during your many years as OFA technical director).

Cynically I have to agree. Sadly Rogaining is going or has gone down the same path.

Time for a back to basics dose of plain speaking (with apologies to Mad as Hell)

Thanks Jack!

It's tricky, I'll agree, when orienteering is something we would all do because we love it, even if only one person turned up (and that person ourselves) and yet the international rules and regulations, on which OA's are modelled, run to something like 80 pages...

Simmo did a good job on catering the 'supper' too :)

Can't believe WA got 11 attendees (according to Eventor) to a L3 workshop but on the two occasions I put my name down to attend a L1 workshop it was cancelled because I was the only person registered!

Uncle JiM:
Maybe something to do with the presenter :) or the intended attendee ;)

Well Simmo does put most people to sleep.
