Early starter for the Middle at Bert Adams. Car thermometer said 52 when we started, 55 when we left a few hours later, and breeze blew some clouds away, so a pretty nice day.
Brown was 3.1 km, 95m climb, 1:10000 map, 5m contours
No problems with any of them, maybe a few less-than-direct routes, but safer, perhaps. I was a bit left of the line to 2 and didn't really see the rootstock attackpoint but corrected when I saw the flag to my right.
Woods were mostly open where mapped as white, with thicker sapling stands for light and medium green. It was a good idea to look at the practice map to see how the gullies were mapped.
1st in F65 (of 3). Mary Jones and Linda Kohn had faster times, along with maybe 1/2 dozen of the older men. Glen ran Green.
I used the inhaler about an hour before my start and while I still coughed some it didn't seem too bad.
