Orienteering race 17:44  3.1 km (5:43 / km)
Round 1 of SART a Lynndale park where I first encounter the west coast wonder called blackberries! I happily took the wrong routechoice, made a mistake on it and went through a (in my defense very thin chunk of dark green) which were thick, prickly blackberries that promptly had me at a complete standstill. I fought my way out, and made it to #1 around the same time as the other people in my heat.
#2 - took the silly southern route, instead of running around and up from the bottom.
#3 - ignored the trails, used the contours, spiked it.
#4 - used the larger trail to the south, avoided any possibility of blackberries, spiked it.
#5 - easy
#6 - took the first half of the road, then through the fields to the north of the school.
#9, ran to the north of all three diamonds, cutting through the middle might have been faster. This control was totally not on a legal feature in my honest opinion. Between 2 light green "thickets" that didn't seem any thicker than the forest around it.
#10, 11, 12 spiked
#13, south side of tennis courts
#14, bearing ish thing into the mess of trails hoping for the best, got it pretty well.
#15 - spiked
Overall - a fun race in a forested park. Awesome to be on a sprint map that I didn't make. Head to head experience all but non-existent, I didn't see anybody from my heat after control #1, despite running fairly slowly.
