A jog around the carine open space whilst hunting controls.Emma and Will came and walked around the lake and they enjoyed themselves too - was a lovely day for it.
Didnt hear all of ricky's intro/clues at start so only heard that there where words in the flags not that they where pointing to the location - so after the first flag just decided to run to anything I felt was a ricky style location for a control - I know I missed some in north because I purposely didnt go there - shin where sore as where knees - surprisingly after not doing much recently I expected that they would be all good.
A lot of guess work on the clues - took me a while to realise that the two clues where two different questions.
I did go a bit crazy at one point misread a sign placement and ran in towards the lake in the long grass... the thought of snakes and the sharp grass needles soon had me backing out of that stupidity then I saw the sign I was aiming for oops.
Enjoyed it despite the slow pace and minor pain - good seeing fletch back in town - he apologized for not running Gero SR yet - no biggie really, his been injured and its open a full year - im sure hell get to it - mind you his in perth for a few weeks so he might find some escape on the other 3 courses :P Also good to see the water bottles getting some use :)
Thanks to Ricky for setting up a novel event nice concept :)
