Orienteering race 52:38 [3] 2.7 mi (19:28 / mi) +227m 15:26 / mi

Sunday middle, ok except for #5 - misread the control description, ie, the "L" as in foot of cliff outside a circle in clue description was as small as can be. I read it as a dot as in "side of" which, of course, was most confusing as it does not apply to cliffs. Muttering """at least use "foot" symbol!""" while running round & up & down & to NW foot twice. CP was in a jumble of rocks, thru some green at base of perhaps 30' cliff. It was in the center of the circle. Lost some 6' compared to Dave Cady. Rest ok tho I was in a state of disequilibrium for a bit after. Departing #5 had quite a cliff to negotiate - needed to be more one side or the other. No falls on the course, however...falls not affordable for the most part on such terrain.
1 PM

Orienteering race 21:49 [4] 1.53 mi (14:14 / mi) +117m 11:30 / mi

Sunday sprint, no misses but RC to 5 was likely not the best - did not see the path route as I did not spend enough time looking. Was lucky to stumble upon a small stairway thru the high retaining wall (a small, old path with recent use led there).
7 PM


Camping at Round Pond thanks to Jim Arsenault - two calm and cloudless lovely days & nights, sleeping with peepers & geese (plus Beth & dogs). Dinner with Dave Cady Fri & Sat, Jim Saturday. Compared Schades with Park Restaurant right next door, Park getting the nod. West Point campus was alive with rites of spring activity on a Sunday afternoon. Left right after finishing (almost forgot to download) to drive to Holbrook. Manhattan, Cross Bronx, LIE provided a lively comparison.

An excellent WP weekend by Cadets & weather powers-that-be.
