Queen Elizabeth Country Park orienteering Blue 3rd + 6:48 on Tom
A return (again) to orienteering! Really good to be out again. A bit rusty (or lazy) with the use of the compass! Didn't need to use it much but should have used it more. Hills were quite hard work in places! Felt good on the warm up, but the hill to 1 got everything pumping!
On control 9, should have done a better rough compass bearing (drifted around some green/undergrowth near the end). Control 10, told myself to use the compass more but didn't check direction out of the control. Continued down a path for at least 100-200m before realising I should have checked the direction. Ian Moran followed me. Control 11 pretty doubtful and hesitant, Ian further to the right and found the control first.
