  1. Hi Ken. How’s things? I am now living in Queensland on the Sunshine Coast. While not active in orienteering, I am getting into mapping now with the assistance of Geoff Peck. So far I’ve done six maps for local outdoor education centres as well as given coaching to their staff on how to teach oring to students. I’m enjoying mapping and see with interest that you have been doing quite a bit of it over the years. It would be good to hear from you. Cheers, Ray
