Red course at Germantown. 2nd place to Tom Svobodny by about 3 minutes. I lost a few seconds on 13 talking to Katie about her torn fingernail, probably a minute or two trying to bash thru the green leaving 14, and at least a couple minutes looking in the wrong reentrant for 15 (I blew a control in this same spot last year and I am convinced that the map is less than perfect there. Then I blew another minute trying to cut thru woods from 15-16, where the light green turned out to be rather thorny and slow. Ouch!

Walnut Hills HS. Although this was mostly open school grounds, the mapping was a pain because of many changes to the property since the aerial photos, eg new parking lot, removed 2 tennis courts, rebuilt the football field and track, etc.
