Race Evaluation

NEOC champs: Green


1. Bad route choice
Did not plan ahead
didn't see the more direct-line trail until after the meet. I took the road left, missed the stone wall, and came in from the back using the trail to the N.
2. path right (NE) to trail. Went from trail jct S of knoll to stream bend.
3. followed stream, then crossed but stayed low until the stream bent SW.
4. Lots of unmapped low growth slowed my process. Tried to go carefully on a direct line, but couldn't see the land forms for the undergrowth. Came back in from the wall and pond to the W.
5. Bad map reading
Confused parallel features
Bad distance judgement
Lacked confidence
Turned off trail too far S. Never saw the E-W wall, but slogged through the undergrowth, getting a bit wet. Reoriented on the rocky hillock SW of the flag.
6. Slow going following the wall as a handrail. Came in from the wall corner, SW of marsh to cliff-pair to the seasonal marsh.
7. SW to trail, crossed the icy stream (gingerly, noting ice built up on one of the small trees closer to the water level =-O ), then ran trails until just W of the pond, where I cut SW.
8. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Confused parallel features
Plan was to go S of the hill to path, and cut to the road, but I must have exited the control in the wrong direction. When I first got to the small path and oriented the map, I was S of where I had planned. Ran N on the road, exiting NW on the trail, jumping off about 60m SW of the flag. Some confusion of the many similar features inside the circle.
9. Headed NW, staying low, but crossed the marsh at its narrow point, and immediately crossed back, eventually finding the dry neck. Then due N on an unmapped (or misplaced?) trail that began to the E of the little knoll to the big trail, then W to the flag.
