Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Sprint orienteering at JCC this morningI ran a sprint at JCC this morning. While the area isn't especially challenging, the course was fun. I liked having lots of controls and lots of direction changes.
Going to 3 it wasn't immediately clear if you could go between the building and the out of bounds areas. I took a careful look with my magnifier and saw that you could hug the building and get through.
The map was a bit sketchy at 9 (and the control was hung a bit further in).
12 turned out to cause the most trouble for the most people. Leaving 11 you could see 13 and that pulled a few people off line.
To 16 I went left. I think most people went right. Looking at the map now, I see that you could go straight (i.e. the fence is shown as crossable). But the fence was pretty high. You'd have to be a good climber for the straight route to pay off.
