The story...

Prologue: "One day I went orienteering and ..."

1 I
2 heard a
3 gigantic
4 monster
5 crashing
6 in the trees.
7 I thought
8 it must be
9 a Bigfoot!
10 Then I saw
11 it was
12 really
13 only
14 (insert name of your favorite orienteer)

The guilty course setter declines to disclose the actual person named on control 14. Suffice to say it generated lots of laughs from the team.
