    I attended the event at Yellowcraig on Saturday. I now have an extra compass identical to my own. Has anyone lost their compass. I am happy to post it if anybody has reported theirs lost. I must’ve picked it up by accident outside the tent.

    Thank you and hope to resolve anybody’s mysteriously lost compass.
