Intermediate 'modern' course at 50th Anniversary Retro Meet - Camp Fortune.
Hiked up the ski hill 850m to start. Did Burt W's intermediate course - some tricky spots, as flags were hard to see due to abundant (and high) foliage. i know I was 'at' the controls long before I could spot them!!!
Overall time on course was 1:43.19, but again I lost 40 minutes over two of the controls! Frustrating. After punching the finish control, I opted to run the remaining 700m or so to the download, which brought my overall milage to about 7km.
I heard from many that the retro courses were hell, so maybe I shouldn't complain! The woods were beautiful, albeit buggy and muggy. Enjoyed talking to Anne, Mary Ellen, Christie, Burt, and many other O folks as Andrew and I had a hot dog/hamburger and rested a bit. Francis came in from the Red course, glad to have survived it, but somewhat frustrated at the effort. Andrew came in third in his Advanced modern course, and I finished 8th amongst 16 or 17 people, many of whom DNF'd or MP'd. I guess I'm happy that I finished the course successfully!
