OK event at Perry Lake, inaugural use of the map. The meet director decided to also make it a mountain bike O, which makes sense since this a mountain bike area. 7 out of 29 attendees did the mountain bike course.
Nice weather led to a decent turnout. I helped with registration and beginner's briefings, then went out on the advanced course.
I took a minute before the start to try to get my head into the game, and I think that helped. I stopped twice from 2-3 to pull a thorn out of my sock.
Picked a slow route choice to 4, although it was very easy and safe.
Long, long run to 8 and back (which course-setter Eric loves and I dislike). Very tired climbing the hill to 10, where Blair caught me.
Bad rough compass to 11, and I was sloppy a few other times today. I was not very systematic on my rough compass today, I should have paid more attention to that.
Blair punched 12 just ahead of me, and then I could tell he was taking trails all the way to the finish. I decide to go straight to see if I could keep up with him. I could and I did! Until the last bit of trail, where he blew me away.
Nice course with plenty of route choices.
