MIGGLY MOOS SPORTS EVENINGS 2009
EVENT 3 – ORIENTEERING WITH THE MOOS
Here is the un-biased abridged opinion of Captain Knottwit:-
FECKING AWESOME 3
Well this was what I heard.
Pre-event nerves were clearly in the air as much communication was apparently the order of the evening before the event as all entrants busily planned their co-ordinates and their routes and checked their workings with their fellow riders. Rog had to be the embarrassment of the day as he failed to grasp an understanding of an OS Map calmly admitting that the only paper he ever saw in his hands were £50 notes. This resulted embarrassingly in the Captain having to explain to the Millionaires daughter how to read said map. The said communications were extended to the mobile answerphone of the Captain where an un-named Moo was heard to say “there are serious errors in the event planning”. That could be said as the retrieved Garmin GPS co-ordinates were wrongly logged in reverse order. THAT’S HOW THEY WERE LOGGED BY THE GARMIN !!. Complaints on a postcard to Garmin please.
Enzo was the talk of the night as thank God he finally made it back to the TA at 11.35pm after riding double the distance of everyone else after losing himself on familiar territory – an OS Map. In all fairness Moos spirit shone through as he was adamant to make the finish. Thanks to Tom and John for searching for the lad. As Captain Mainwaring once said. “You stupid boy”. A new name then perhaps for Enzo – PIKE ???
Ramblings of MP like cheating was once rife again as entrants shuffled routes to their own ends. Inevitably “grouping” occurred as usual and this was again reflected in the results. Little bOBEep was an inspiration to many others as his little sheep (6/7 in all – Slug, Johnsy, Pealy and can’t remember who else followed him up to Rudry Common having literally taken a 90 deg right turn at the Checkpoint at the beech tree having failed to see the marker board. Slug eventually saw the light before an unnecessary climb was halted to the Common and who knows where.
Dastardly and Mutley (Gaz and the sneaky Harty) had to be the villains of the piece as they tried to put off Owgie and his drinking buddies (Wrighty and Boy, Knobhead) from visiting Checkpoint 4 in order to benefit their own causes. The funny thing was that the Wacky Races crew almost got lost themselves in the mirky fog on top of Machen Mountain later on in the event.
Schlong again decided that self was best finishing the event before all others and confessing not to have passed anybody on the night. Top marks to the hermit for the highest score on the night – I wouldn’t yet rule him out from a top three finish !!
usual little encouragement was needed to scrutinise the aforementioned
proceedings aided by the consumption of the obligatory gallon of ale!!!

WHO’S GOING TO WIN THE £100:00+ NOW THAT ANOTHER EVENT IS LIKELY TO BE RUN ??
My money is on Johnsy for a win
Wooden Spoon – Rog – being engraved as we speak
Spirit of the Series – ENZO ????
