From time to time I’ve seen some logic in some of the changes to orienteering in the UK that have taken place over the last few years, but just at the moment they all seem like a waste of time, as have been the hours spent by many of us pondering and discussing the changes. It’s difficult to remember demands from orienteers that things be changed (perhaps I just have a bad memory) so it appears that the mess we’ve got ourselves into has arisen because of the good intentions of a few experts, and the honest efforts of organisational apparatchiks.

And if that paragraph lost you, you know how I’m feeling. Can’t we just press “undo”?
