Red course at Lone Star Armadill-O National Meet. Cooper Lake SP Coyote Run map, near Sulphur Springs TX. 7.5km, 168m climb, 1:10000.
Good course, good terrain (although pretty scratchy with lots of thorned things), OK execution on 17 legs. Made a 180 error on the 1-2 leg, not immediately out of the control, but after about 50m when I decided to head for a trail (4+ minutes lost). Gigantic error on 5-6. Missed 6 by about 50 meters to the left but thought I had missed it to the right. Spent way to much time wandering and then incorrectly relocated. Finally got correctly located on a feature about 400m from the control (the leg itself was about 350m). Lost about 25 minutes on that. OK on most of the other legs except for 12 which I overshot a bit. Overall should've been about 30 minutes faster. At least I wasn't DFL.

Model event at Cooper Lake SP. At a moderate effort with an occasional excursion to check out various features. Lots of greenbriar, pretty good visibility, some subtle and complex drainage features, map looks to be good. Looks like it will be fun - hoping not to lose too much blood. Low 70s and sunny. 2.7k SL.
