It was a great week-plus of orienteering and hanging out with friends, particularly those from out of town like Boris+Alli+fam. Since I never managed to write anything about the events before the US Champs, here's an abbreviated chronological synopsis of the week using Big W's patented Five Words method of description, but without repeating any word:
COC Ultimate-O Middle @ Moses Lake Sand Dunes:
Good as I reasonably get.
COC Ultimate-O Goat @ Fishtrap:
Where'd Bonesaw go?? ...Bonesawed again.
EWOC Riverside Sprint #1:
Bobbly. That knoll's a rock!
EWOC Riverside Sprint #2: Faster, Cleaner, Straighter - O-lympics motto.
EWOC Riverside Classic:
Legs/mind fatigued; hot, dehydrated.
EWOC Liberty Lake Score-O:
