spiked:19/20c shoes: Scarpa Spark Trail Shoes

Park-O at Washington Park in Albany. Mostly open land (mowed grass) with many mature trees, a few statues and fountains, some playground equipment, a long narrow lake (with a bridge near the middle), and an amphitheater (where they were prepping for a production of Spamalot). Some contour detail, particularly near the lake. Phil H-T recently remapped the area so the map is vastly improved over the 1988 version.

Frank Boscoe and Brenan Tarrier made good use of the entire park and got a 4km course on a ~0.5 km^2 map. Since this is a very urban park, they used small pin flags to mark control locations (with a letter at each location which we noted on our punch cards).

An OK run with one significant error when I went to a control on an adjacent spur rather than the correct one. Also lost some time (15 sec) waiting for traffic to cross a street (3 cars, 4 Harleys). Took one longer route choice when I noticed a group posing for pictures on the bridge I wanted to cross and ended up going around the lake. Probably could've been 1.5 - 2 min faster. Mostly cloudy and muggy.

HRM needed a new battery (now fixed).
