Cottesloe Metro - not what I had hoped, but I think the sprint section went down well.
First the wedding which I knew about, but was unfortunate in that having the Main Lawn out of bounds restricted route choices somewhat, and forced the Start to be located outside the grounds in a cramped area, with a separate Finish. The ideal location for Start/Finish would have been on the Main Lawn, at the top of the steps from Napier St.
Then finding on the day that the Sunken Lawn area was being used for an event the Council hadn't told me about. This forced the deletion of control 2, and really restricted route choices both within and outside the grounds (I expected some people to get 2 then go outside and come back in at the end for the other 5 controls in the grounds). Inside, there were some good options between both 2 & 3 and 2 & 4, which were lost when 2 was scrubbed.
Finally, when doing the briefing, having said that no. 2 was deleted, I should have reduced the number of controls required by 1 on all courses. Not doing so meant the courses were over-long, and times blew out.
Apparently people had problems at 17. The green was mapped very accurately, and the contours I thought I mapped particularly well, but maybe I should have experimented a bit with the OCAD brown and green colours to make the contours more visible.
I think that a good sprint map could include the Civic Centre, the Dunes and car park, the tennis courts, and the two cul-de-sacs down to Marine Parade. We'd need to run it at a time which would suit the tennis club (a morning in Winter?), and have timed crossings across Napier St. The multiple levels of the Civic Centre grounds are certainly interesting!
