Swampfox:
Daze 5 is now in the bag, and this Daze too goes down as a success at the brand new, never before used Devil's Claw venue/map. We must bow our heads and clasp hands to acknowledge the generous contribution made by the local ranchers, who at the last moment favored us by inserting an order of magnitude more race cattle into the race area than we have had on any of the previous race Daze this year.

More to follow about Daze 5? Maybe, but for now tomorrow's Goat course needs some watering.

This cow guarding the Daze control (the Daze control flies at the Finish, and touching the Daze control signals when an official finish time is determined) looks so lifelike that it's hard to tell it's not real, although if you look carefully you can see one of the legs has broken off. It's actually a Styrofoam cow purchased for $12.95 on sale at Lowes earlier in the summer. It's what you do if you absolutely, positively, must have a guard cow at the Daze control.

And what a job that guard cow is doing! Do you see even a single runner trying to sneak in to get to the Daze control?

funny....I saw the same cow- very lifelike movements. You must have paid extra for that.

Sure looks like a price tag in the ear---or a tag of some sort

The Devil's Claw map and courses from Daze 5. It's important to note that temporary/movable features such as Styrofoam cows were not surveyed.
