EMPO club champs at Pineridge. I ran the course for my age group--Green for EMPO's purposes--nominally about 4 km, 185m climb.
Temp was in low to mid 50s and overcast, so not unlike conditions at the A meet but the woods were more open because the ferns had all been frosted and died down. I hesitated in a few places losing time to uncertainty but was generally in the right area and just had to look around. (#5-control 55; 7-53; 8-38).
Gave instruction to one group who had never done this before and they made it back just fine with their early-teen age daughter doing most of the navigation I think. She seemed quite interested so I hope they make it back to another event sometime. One other non-member group and then everyone else was from EMPO including two new members. :-)
(who actually belong to other clubs too...)
Had my pick of various prizes and chose a pack of maple hard candies left over from the meet in October. Fastest time on the course as well.
