Too bad you didn't know in advance about the cp at your house. Bent could have set up the Gopro at home for some fun video of the dogs going berserk repeatedly!

Thanks! We did know there would be a CP here since the organizers had to get landowner permission from us and our neighbours who own the property between us and the conservation land. However, I thought it was the same hilltop they'd used at the back of our property in 2011, which would mean teams would run behind our house to the driveway, and the dogs would never see them. As soon as I saw the race map, I wondered if BazingaDog might get excited and jump through a glass window again but thankfully he seems to have learned his lesson!

We had never expected to do the "bonus map for strong runners" we'd heard about when permission was requested. Once the extra points were added to Map 3, it made sense even for us to go that far. It was a treat to punch a control on the same hill in our front yard where I'd been testing different race shoes yesterday!
