Thanks for a great event, Phil! It was really fun!

Wonderful! Were there really only 29 in the W Mass Champs? Felt like a lot more. Fun times.

Thanks Phil! Nice job on the map and the courses!

Ditto. And if you stumble upon a 305 someday, you too will be a W Mass Champ!

Echoing the thanks -- fun event. Also -- me, a sprint champion? I never thought I'd live to see the day. :-) Thanks for the opportunity.

Thanks for everything, Phil.

Woo, awesome map, courses and write-up, thanks muchly Phil! And good use of nemesis (verb). =)

Phil, would you be able to post image files of the three sprint courses for ease of QuickRouting? Thank you!

Quickroute should be available this evening on the NEOC site. I'll put a link to it. I look forward to seeing the variety of routes!

PG had already posted scanned copies of the maps.

And now that Ian has been identified as a nemesis for Ali, could we call him Smokin' Joe?

Good point. Thanks, Charlie!

That was super fun, thanks Phil! Although next time I expect you to attack some of the darker green with some clippers, and turn it back to light green =)

I was impressed with your use of the terrain, Phil. The two sprint + chase final format was fantastic and made for much better competition than a set of disconnected races. Thanks for putting on a great event!

Charlie, I should point out that I declared Ali my nemesis in October 2010, after a followup to my broken tibia. I suppose a nemesis relationship can be asymmetric; I don't know exactly when Ali acknowledged the threat. Hopefully next year will be more fruitful. Thanks for helping organize the WCOC event; it was lots of fun!

I meant to say routegadget will be put up on the NEOC site, not quickroute. Tomorrow?

Routegadget is here.
