I was really looking forward to this event, after the success of the Chasing sprint the day before. But I was disappointed.
I really enjoyed the first 10 controls. Then we got to the shitty part. Completely unavoidable for the planners (glad we didnt have anything like this for the saturday) but the 6 minute trog with tapes to another control was desperate and I got cold and bored.
Also the next leg was actualy the shittest thing in the world. Boulders+Moss+Running = CRAP. Didn;t like it at all. I'm not in a boo, just didnt like it.. and made worse by the rain. The rest of the course I was just tired after celebrating at the SPOOK Meal, not eating much brekkie and running lots the day before. Energy levels = 0.
Ah well, I got a nice wilfs from Haze and it was all good. Captains Memorial Followed and was a spectacular turnout with SPOOK winning everything except the footie - 2-0.. who'd heard of such a thing?!
