Double orienteering weekend! Le Communal in Neuchatel. Hillside with nice forest and many clearings. I had a pretty good run - Marc Lauenstein was about 49 min, so I did OK. For me: 1 x 60s mistake, and 2 slower routes (about 30s each). It was chilly!

Club Relay at La Givrine. This relay seems to take the best 4 technical teams and 2 easy teams from each club to determine the winner. And we are supposed to run the courses that we normally run (TL for me). Kerria got us off to a good start on the TM. Vincenzo was on the TC. He must have been rusty, but he set off in reverse and completed the first loop in the wrong direction - like 5 controls. It was a bit confusing on the map, but I'm not sure how he missed that he was counting down. Anyway, when he came through the finish, he decided to start in the proper direction. He got round just before the mass start. I messed up #3 quite badly, and the mass start caught me - quite a lot of decent runners all on the TL (because TL's all run last). I took a few road routes and managed to finish about a minute ahead. So it was pretty good, apart from #3. It was fun, but would have been much better in warmer weather with so much standing around.
