For those who haven’t heard of it, it goes something like this according to Wikipedia:
- “The competition is split into eight divisions which are dropped off, blindfolded, at an unknown location in the bush. The teams of four people then locate their position and race to their endpoint, picking the quickest route through the countryside. Distances from the endpoint vary from up to 100 km for the top divisions to 25 km for the lower divisions.”
What started as a bit of good underground fun has been so overly formalised that local council permission was needed and, predictably, was not forthcoming.
A lesson in there for us all.
