A-rata : 5.3km : 17c
SR = 1.132
RI = 0.088
(example of where this doesn't work. Maybe a multiplication value based on the course, A=1.1, B=1.2 etc would give a better representation)
Riina was working so Markku picked me up after a doctors appointment for a guys evening orienteering! Event was pretty close to their house so we parked and changed and headed down then.
First 10 controls of the course were on the Tietävälä map and at 1:5000.Was mostly clean. Too high to 3 though and maybe the righthand route choice would have been better to 9. Was hesitant around 4 and 8 as visibility was very low in what was scattered trees, very different to the open white forest near 6 and 7. 10 was the map flip control.
Across the road and into the hiitokeskus section at 1:10000, didnt really have much issue with the scale change. Should have probably gone a bit straighter to 4 and taken the earlier path. Was too far east of 5 aswell but not much time lost. 7 was buried in some dense trees despite being marked white on the map so was a bit confused here.
Fun event and got chatting to Tuukka Tuomala, who is a big cheese in RaVa, the mind behind Yökuppi. Apparently is going to bring a Yökuppi t-shirt to 25manna for me. The Yökuppi guys go on an annual trip, this year is Iceland, so I put in a plug for Ireland in the future. Also turns out he knows ndobbs.........does everyone in Finland know him?!
