Congratulations to those who bit the bullet and tried out ‘The Technical Twist’ – a section of the course was printed without any background map so they had to rely on bearings and pacing to get to the next control. Although many pulled wry faces at Registration on being told this, the same faces were beaming with satisfaction at Download and said they enjoyed the challenge. (Maybe just too polite to tell Pete what they really thought?!)

At least we didn’t make you all do logic problems and puzzles on the way round like Team GE were doing. What”s the maximum number of pieces of pizza you can get if you make just 3 straight cuts? Hint – it’s a round pizza and the pieces don’t have to be equally sized and shaped. If you want to know the answer then catch them at Hazlehead next week! (PS Dave, what was the elephant puzzle?)

Lost property: map from last year’s event found up on the moor nestled in the heather.
A great recommendation for waterproof paper as it was still legible, if a bit mucky, but begs the question how did the loser manage to get back to base without it?

  1. At least it gives us an excuse for taking so long.

    The Eelphant challange is this.

    Erics Elephant is ill, but before the vet can diagnose the problem he needs to know how much the elephant weighs.
    The vet has the following equipment to help him.
    A set of normall functional bathroom scales. (eg not got the range to weigh the elephant on it own.)
    A small bucket
    A considerable amount of sand
    A large swimming pool
    An elephant-sized fishing boat
    A spade
    A bucket of yellow paint

    Using ALL the equipment above, how does the vet calculate the elephants weight.

    Answer as if it were a story.

    I will give you time to digest befor giving out the answer.

    • Think I’ve sussed it but only if I can supplement the equipment list with some sticky buns to lure the ailing ele into the boat.
      Now I’m dying to know if the vet sussed it? Has Eric’s elephant made a full recovery?
