Race Evaluation

QOC: Hemlock Overlook, Night O: Red


1. Did not like map
Lacked confidence
Unused to map
Unused to terrain
Did not take trail from Start. Went woods to horseshoe trail. Hesitated at trail end because trail didn't appear to tee. I don't think part of this trail was there or at least wasn't noticeable. This led me to run farther up trail then I intended. Just slow to the control.
2. Straight to it.
3. Did not like map
Never saw trail (same part missing as number 1), wasn't confident of where I was when I crossed stream. Went slow after stream.
4. Hesitated
Wasn't sure where I cross trail. Didn't want to go to clearing since it was private land. Floundered along trail until I decided to wing it. Cut in, Saw a ditch that wasn't on the map. Hesitated. I hadn't gone far enough. It was dark so unsure of where to go. Followed what I thought was proper contour and found it.
5. Bad map reading
Hesitant when crossing streams. Trouble seeing everything from the glare of my flashlight.
6. +00:30Up to top of hill and just kept going checking each reentrant. It as farther than I thought it would be.
7. Did not like map
Confused parallel features
Crossed stream, ran up hill, Crossed trail and was unsure where on trail I was. Ran down spur. It wasn't there. Then big time indecision and floundering. Looked left, looked right, nothing to see. I went right (oops wrong way). Bailed out to trail a few times each time going farther and farther away. finally went to correct attack point on trail cut in and still couldn't find it. I think my circle was wrong spot as it was one spur off.
8. Straight.
9. Hesitated
Down hill and left to trail. Took trail. Hesitated repeatedly along trail. Cut in at trail bend, ran to stream and river. control hung farther up creek then I thought.
10. Disturbed by others
Took trail to rock, Cut up hill. Spotted control a long way off but turned out I header to someone elses flashlight. I was in the right spot. Looked around and didn't see it. I turns out I was standing next to it.
11. Ran/walked right to it.
12. No attack point
Down hill, crossed stream, up hill. I was a little high to missed the little reentrant. Got to bigger one past it and turned around and went right to it. It was really tough going along the hill side. Green and bad footing.
13. Bad route choice
Bad map reading
Went Straight. didn't see trail through green so I ran around the green. I hit the end of the trail and then went right to it.
F. Bad route choice
Straight. I decided trail was to far away. Bad decision. I also hit the thorns leaving the 13 control.
