Well, that was a blast of fun thanks to Iain McLeod’s cunning use of two maps at different scales to keep us on our toes. What’s the verdict on Doug’s new map? Makes the old campsite area feel quite different at that scale?

And hands up who got tricked into running across that nice open field on the way to number 2 on ST and LT courses only to find themselves trapped by high fences and gate?
At least one Junior squeezed under the gate pretty easily…  and one Senior was game enough to admit trying to follow suit and getting stuck. They must have been having visions of having to wait a few days with no food like Winnie the Pooh when he got stuck in Rabbit’s front door.

“So daily and nightly
The Pooh’s been shrinking slightly
And mind over matter
Will make the Pooh unfatter.”

Lyrics from ‘Songs from Walt Disney’s Winnie the Pooh and other children’s favourites’ Vinyl LP 1966
I’ll lend it to you if you want to hear the whole thing (and still have the technology to play it). They don’t write ’em like that anymore.
