Goats, fog and maps

MetOC, Orienteering

The second MetOC training was done this Monday (23 February) on Black Hill in the fog and wind that the new Year of the Goat brought. The place offered good fell running (albeit with some undergrowth) and called for terrain concentration. Thanks for your support, and I hope you have enjoyed them. More photos are available at facebook.com/metropolitanorienteering. (One more still coming up on 14 March – see the FB page for details)

Designing publicity material for the event you hold is fun, and this time I’m doing it in a minimalistic way. (Echoes of New Era?) Of course, remember to make entries! 🙂

By the way, do you know that the 26 April event is probably the first ranking race in Hong Kong to make use of an OpenOrienteering Mapper drawn map? (The coming MetOC Champs in September as well – details expected late March) It’s a free, open source alternative to the mainstream OCAD. It’s easier to draw, too, if you don’t want to spend thousands of bucks to upgrade to the latest OCAD version.
