I went out to point 38 on the courses for today at Gay City to do some flagging. Yesterday when I was putting flags out I came across an area where the beavers had chewed the samplings down to 1 ft high spikes, and I couldn't get the image of someone tripping and falling on a spike out of my mind. This morning I streamered the whole area.
What a difference from yesterday, putting out controls in a t-shirt. Today I wore everything I had at the registration area, and couldn't get warm. Fingers were useless.
I should add that there were some very fine helpers who picked up all the controls, Rich Nietupski, Jim Henderson, Bill Duncan and Sam Levitin.
Other noteworthy sightings: Clint, whose car was in the parking lot and who was off on a 3 hour run before doing the red course in what turned out to be the second fastest time, Ken and Ruthie down from Vermont, one Brian Corbett from Cork, who smoked the red course in 44 minutes, and many of the customary folks who come to these events, George n Lyn, Nellie, J-J, all 3 of the CT Brautigams, plus their patient dog who waited in the car. Seemed to be fine running weather, but sketchy for manning the table for sure.
