I had intended to start WS2 next week, but the expected snow/ice this weekend got me out early. A gloomy day with temps in the low 30s. no wind. The ground was covered with a light coating of snow. enough to require some extra care, but otherwise not a problem. Rather slow, mainly due to a lack of energy. But also, I had trouble reading the map. Some sunlight would have helped.

HVO/WCOC Winter Series #1
Tarrywile Park, Red, 5.0km
Nice day. Low 30s, cloudy and breezy. The wind was obvious on the hill tops.
The first seven controls were the same as the Brown course, but mostly in a different order (one common leg). Then to a bunch (5) of new controls to the south. This was mostly a good run, except for #11. As soon as I reached the trail out of #10, my brain seemed to shut off. I turned into the woods way, way too early. Once I retreated back to the trail, I had no more trouble.
