Web-site reboot

You may have noticed several things missing from the web-site, probably including your logon.

The version of the software we use to run the web-site has been terminally broken by hackers and its not clear whether they have got into the Big Foot site or not. Given the attack is estimated to affect millions of sites, its pretty clear that the Big Foot site would be top of the list, so the site has to be rebuilt. To read more - see this BBC article.

Back in the DPRK

Patrik Gunnarsson's continuing mission to take orienteering to the final frontier and beyond took him and crew to North Korea this month.

Whilst the word's media got excited about the whereabouts of supreme leader Kim Jong-un, Patrik was orienteering in yet another new country.

Reports of  previous orienteering events held in the DPR have described armed guards lining the roads to prevent people going to places wheer they shouldn't, a practice that Big Foot intends to take up for sprint events, once we get the grant in.
