Checking out De Hoge Veluwe National Park near Otterlo in Netherlands. Includes 2 km walking around a lake.

Interesting and very large park with an art gallery and sculpture park in the middle. Nice relaxed day cruising around sans helmets and feeling Dutch.

Any ideas on a control description and map symbol for this sculpture?

Back on the Touring Bikes after they have gathered dust in Pauline's garage for 9 months.

Into Folkestone to the bike shop for a service, not too much to do this year as we have a few bit replaced on the road last year.

Nice to be back in the saddle, off across the channel on Wednesday

Local Score O event in Dover run by Saxon Orienteers

Small area on the edge of Dover 1:4,000 scale on a steep chalk hillside partly wooded with lots of tracks. A twist in the system that gave 10 points per control (20 Controls) but a bonus 10 points for each time you ran controls in number sequence.

I spotted a couple of number sequences that I could easily build into the route without massive back tracking and did 5 for an additional 50 points. Finished the course first out of about 12 runners in 35 minutes but one guy did all the controls in order for maximum points in just under the allotted 60 minutes and a couple of other did more sequential controls than me but did not get all the controls. I should have tried for more sequence controls but did not realise that I would get around the controls quite as quickly as I did.

Managed to introduce my sister to Orienteering and she seemed to enjoy it and might try it again sometime.

Retired for a stroll along the sea front at Deal and a beer in the garden, the way an Orienteering Sunday should be.
