11:40 I'm at the finish line of the Southland Schools Orienteering Champs waiting for Douglas to find his way here.
12:10 Well he finished. Don't know results yet, but he made up time on some who started ahead of him
Update: Douglas did brilliantly. He has never orienteered before, and came in a close fourth, first of the Fiordland College team.
There was one control he spent 10mins trying to locate the exact spot. If he managed that in 5 minutes he would have won.
Not bad for a first effort.
Currently most of my spare time (Whats that !) is being spent digging a big hole.
We had spoken to Ed (the drystone waller in the village) and had asked him if he could move the garden wall back for us to give us a paved area in front of the house.
He called round on Sunday afternoon to say that he could do it Thursday / Friday this week.
So I now have to complete the digging out by Wednesday pm to enable him to start work on Thursday. So I set to that evening and also did a couple of hours last night too.
This video article about local helicopter pilot is excellent
Hannibal's ability to spot things from the air is amazing too, & he often resolves searches before they really get going properly by spotting the missing person himself.
Any one use RSS?
I do, and I think Robert does.
