Pancakes taste much better when you have first had to do a bit of map memory and then run around for 3-7 minutes looking for fillings to put in your pancake! Therefore, on Pancake Day, 6 CUOC orienteers took part in the first Pancake-O!

Here are the results from Pancake-O Champs 2014
Note: At future Pancake-Os it is highly recommended to have a larger team of inspectors at the finish and to have manned controls. Due to understaffing, this was not possible at this Pancake-O and therefore several competitors have been given the benefit of the doubt!
More specific guidelines need to be drawn up regarding how much preparation may be done before dibbing ‘in’ and how complete assembly needs to be before dibbing ‘out’. Some assembly of pancakes was dubious!

So if you want a pancake assembled quickly, depending on which filling you want, you know who to ask!
