Results from "But is it Art" rogaine 23 May

Some observations about the course from Pete Wood (the planner).
Control 11: Wall - western: How many dolphins? The correct answer is 13, but a number of people wrote down 52 - which was not those just on the western wall. Bugger counting all them.
Control 24: man-made Object: Sculpture - how many 'flowers'? This is a parking meter sculpture made up of 6 meters representing flowers - not 1 or 3!
Control 25: Ruin: Mural - what shape are the coloured cells? Hexagon or 6-sided - green is not a shape!
Control 94: Fence - south side: In ground 2000 - what is it? This one seemed difficult to find although 4 found it. Enter from Coronation Ave, walk along the south side of the W-E fence and you'll walk over the top of the tile MOSAIC in the pattern of 2000. It's probably a time capsule.

Hope you all had fun. It was great fun setting it.
