While waiting for darkness to do the night-O, and after feasting at Bub's BBQ (where I restrained myself on food quantities), we did the Corn Maze Trail O from the viewing platform. You had to use good bearings, distance estimation, and a bit of dumb luck (imho) to get close...just like in real Trail O. I managed to get one exactly, and the other two far enough off to not earn points, for 10 points total of a possible 30; highest result was 17 points. Photos and Results
The "mellow mass start" for the Night O required that everyone punch the start box separately, so maps were handed out in a "seeded" manner with fastest folks starting first but getting their maps last (while the rest of us were able to look at the maps for a bit before starting).
The night-O was a blast with lots of people out and about in the maze and you trying to not to be blinded (or blind anyone else with your headlamp) or get run over. Decided early on not to try to get them all in order, though it would probably have been doable within the 60-minute limit, just very tricky and intense. So I did a mostly counterclockwise loop, saving some of the higher point controls at the north end for last. At 46 my plan was to do 46-47-48-51 and in; after 46 I navigated to 47 but thought I needed to go to the next row and punch 51, then 48 and in, and neglected to punch 47. The mind plays tricks on you...
Would have been spooky doing it alone.
30th again, out of 38 this time, with 36 of a possible 49 points
