November 16th 1980: Nation match in Pecs, Hungary. Again we dive into Lars Pamqvist’s map archive – a real gem for orienteers interested in the good old Classics. It is a mystery that they managed that well on this map in this tricky terrain – although Palmquist got some trouble to number 6 here…
You might wonder how a map in this terrain would look like today? So did I, so I managed to find the same area from a training from last year. Below a comparison of part of the area. It is also interesting to see the difference in course.
