OLOU Waverly Park Sprint - short.
Map could use some improvement. I quickly discovered that trails could not be relied upon. Both maps claimed to be 1:4000 scale, but they were clearly significantly different from each other. It remains uncertain whether either was actually 1:4000. If the north lines are 250 meters apart, then the long map is very close to 1:4000; the short one appears to be somewhere around 1:2500. Regardless of the shortcomings, I still had fun.

Getting back home proved to be an entertaining exercise in off-interstate route choice - on the way down to the meet I had observed the aftermath of a major accident and at least two significant secondary crashes in the eight or ten mile backup on the northbound side. A long section was still seriously backed up when I started home, but I managed to get around it without too much lost time.
