Orienteering 2:00:00 [3] 4.2 km (28:34 / km)
shoes: INOV TERROC 330

The meet went well at Camp Stem today. Our partnership got off to a good start with the girl scouts. We had 45 in attendance.

I had two hours to pick up controls before I had to leave. I grabbed 8. No one else could help, so hopefully we'll be able to coordinate the pickup this week.

Walking 34:00 [1] 2.82 km (12:03 / km)
shoes: Brooks Cascadia

Working through all the burps and hiccups of the Saturday meet. First time I have worked with Pam at the Girl Scouts and she will be a big asset for us. Loves the outdoors.

No idea of the number coming. I always like to get at least 20 to a first time event like this, but the timing is falling on graduations, end of school year, etc.

Weather should be ideal starting off at sunrise at 42 and peaking at 62 in the evening. Also calling for it to be dry. There was very little rain down here today and quite windy, hope that will give good footing tomorrow.

Orienteering 5:30:00 [3] 8.55 km (38:36 / km)
shoes: INOV TERROC 330

I got the remaining 11 controls hung today at Camp Stem. It was made interesting by the recent rains. I went ahead and posted some briefing notes on the club facebook page. Nothing worse than getting your map, making a plan only to have to change everything when you hear the briefing. I could attach to the attackpoint event if I knew how to attach a file.

shoes: INOV TERROC 330

Setting controls in the rain at Camp Stem - between Jim and I we got out 20 of the 31. Jim covered 5.35 KM to put out his 8 today. We were both using a GPS to check our control placement.

Orienteering race 33:00 [4] 2.7 km (12:13 / km)
shoes: INOV TERROC 330

First time I have run since January. Real disappoint, I thought #3 had been stolen and ran back up to the meet director, wasted a lot of time. Map was just bad, missing trail and bad vegetation boundary on map. Need to look past that kind of stuff.

Walking 34:15 [1] 2.82 km (12:09 / km)
shoes: Brooks Cascadia

Biking 25:00 [1] 2.0 mi (12:30 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Cascadia

Really glad I got the bike and did not put if off any longer. I did some riding around the neighborhood and did some of the simple adjustments. On my final ride, the bike helmet fell off. The clasp had broken. I could only find one of my bike gloves. Oh well, I will make a trip to the store tomorrow. My classic equipment I bought in the 1990's is going to need to be replaced.

Walking 34:16 [1] 2.82 km (12:09 / km)
shoes: Brooks Cascadia

I got the map completed for the Camp Stem Rogaine. I will set controls on W and Th. Very interesting place. Part of the Camp borders the Ohio River. The Map reminds me of Camp Randsburg. Very sharp contours except for the NE part of the map which is flat with lot's of depressions and pits. This is the kind of place if you loose map contact you will be lost. Never been somewhere with so many gas pipelines. The map is honey combed with them.

I started working on the U of L Campus map and the scale issue. I reread all the emails from last fall when the problem was determined. I also did some measuring on the base map using the scale tool on Google earth and comparing them to the OCAD measurements for the same line. The conclusion I reached was the scale on the base map is incorrect. At any rate, I'm letting some others weigh in on it before changing the base map scale.
