Griffith University Gold Coast Campus - Course 4 (M50)
Ran down to the start triangle and the first thing I see is a building with a sizeable canopy which totally threw me (I hadn't read the blurb saying "most simple canopies attached to buildings not mapped"!!). Once I worked out I was where I thought I was (probably a few seconds but seemed like ages) found my way to 1. A longish leg to 2 which I made a complete hash of (30 secs+). Like most people couldn't read the map at 3 and took a gamble the the 'path' was the black blob on the map and therefore legal. Biggest time loss was on 12 to 13 where I didn't turn left under the canopy ending up near 7 until I realised my error. Jemery caught me here and followed me out of 14 the wrong way into a dead end so had to double back. 6th overall which I was a bit disappointed by.
