Shadowing a newish orienteer on the yellow course. This works out pretty well, and we should be doing it more. Also control pickup afterwards.

QOC Swanson Road Green. I tried to run this course pretty hard. I generally took good routes to controls, with good position knowledge. Lots of issues with precision navigation to controls. On 4, I botched the run-in down the ridge before the control, picking up more of the abandoned trail than was on the map, and getting to the river too far downstream. i was pretty sure what had happened, but it still took too long to get back upstream and find the ridge with the control. On 7, the route seemed good on paper, but it was a hard fight, and if it were not for the power line I wouldn't have known where I was. I don't know what to do about the control-picking problems. That seems to be where I have the most trouble these days.
