Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Sunday, March 28, 2010
Yesterday's race at WallaceI ran a local event on a new map of a new area. While it was fun to be in new terrain, my orienteering was a bit sloppy. I had some good moments, but I had too many legs where I was running and reading rather than reading and running.
Before I ran the course above, I ran a sprint relay. 3 x 1 km. It was a really nice format and a fun course. I did something a bit strange, though. I skipped a control. I think I just folded my map wrong as I came to a control and then ran. Things didn't fit right as I left the control, but I could see a big clearing in the distance and didn't think much of it. I should probably be angry at myself, mostly I'm just surprised. Never thought I'd do something like that.

Kevin is the guy in the PTOC club who put the basemap together. I'm guessing he used a mix of aerial photos from the county and USGS contours.Post a Comment
