Orienteering race 59:47 [5] *** 5.9 km (10:08 / km) +240m 8:25 / km
spiked:14/17c shoes: VJ Falcons

Day 1 at Fair Hill (Interscholastics). An OK run except for errors at controls 3 and 4 resulting in a loss of about 7 - 8 minutes. Was sloppy on the attack going into 3 and didn't read the detail in the circle carefully, so I think I went right by the bag without seeing it. Searched up and down the stream for a while before finding it. Hurried out of 3 trying to make up lost time and headed up the (almost) parallel reentrant to the right of the one I needed. Relocated on the fields. The rest of the run was OK except for another 30 seconds lost chasing the wrong bag on #14 even though I knew it wasn't the one I wanted. Managed to (just) break an hour but was well off the leaders' pace. Not a good run.

Orienteering race 19:09 [5] *** 2.7 km (7:06 / km) +60m 6:23 / km
spiked:11/12c shoes: VJ Falcons

Sprint at Fair Hill (non-sanctioned). Nice course, in the woods but with lots of trails and plenty of route choices. Started one minute behind Mike Minium. Caught Mike at 4 then made an error on the way to 6 crossing a smaller stream on a trail and thinking it was the larger one (lost ~20sec) and he regained the lead. Punched after Mike at 8 then took the route to the right while he went left and I beat him to 9 by 30 - 50m. On my own the rest of the way in. Ended up 20th overall (out of nearly 100 who did the sprint). Earned 23 sprint points (18th male) which ties my 6th lowest score so far - so no net gain.

Orienteering (Field Checking) 2:00:00 [2] *** 6.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Flagging most of the rest of the Billygoat controls at Thacher. Also checked out (and flagged) one of the sprint courses at Pinnacle. Did a bit of mapping to update the area at Camp Pinnacle where they've put in some fences to contain horses. Found most of the control locations OK, but there's one that's "bump in the snow which I think has a stome wall under it". I'll let the vetter check that one.

Snow today varied from none (in the fields at Pinnacle) to up to my knees on the leeward sides of some hills and it was all pretty wet. I was at the highest elevations on the map today, hence more snow. I used snowshoes for the first loop but then went without them through some areas where I could've used them. A successful day considering the conditions. Temperatures in the 40's but the forcasted "sun later in the day" never materialized. Actual time out was about 4 hours.

If the Billygoat were run today, the recommended footwear would be plastic bags. :-)
