The Ratlum "sprints" at the DeWeese estate. Started off with sprint B ("sprint" seems not quite the right word for something that I did at about 11 minutes per km). Here is the map and my route
A few comments about the course --
#1. Ok, would have been slightly better if the control had been on the SW part of the knoll instead of SE, therefore closer to the trail.... :-)
#2. Fine, nice bit of woods!
#5. Spiked it, though I'm quite sure it was on a cliff south of the one in the circle (and the clearing was farther south too). I expected to get through the mounain laurel and then hook back to the left, but there it was, just to my right.
#6. And therefore, the direction to #6 seemed too much to the east instead of SE. But OK woods going to 6.
#7 And OK woods going to 7 too!
#8. And trails almost all the way to 8, excellent!
#9. Ditto, excellent (except I took a shortcut, didn't save me anything).
#10. Excellent for the first 90% of the leg. If the control had just been at the trail bend I used for an attack point, this would have been truly excellent. And if after that the course headed directly to the finish, it would have been really truly excellent. But....
But I finished, with not much in the way of damage despite wearing shorts. And mostly enjoyed it!
