Good grief -- with my recent travel to NAOC, I didn't think ahead to realize the Corn Maze & White Ranch meets were BOTH already coming up this weekend. Ay caramba.

- Updated Corn Maze event page with 2016 details. Also updated Cristina's Google page (including pics) and posted to Attackpoint.

- Updated White Ranch event page with new course details from Yves, road construction & detour info from Brian, and new info about distance to Start.

- Collected NAOC photos and results for RMOC members.

- Created club email with links & photos for Corn Maze, White Ranch, NAOC, and Go Wild! Red Rock Canyon.

- Created an ad for RMOC's Facebook page, for the two meets this weekend.

- Several email follow-ups.

An incredibly fun weekend overall. I enjoyed sharing the awesome cabin with Kris, Gail, and Peter. Can't wait to orienteer again soon.

8 AM

Orienteering race (Sprint Green Y) 22:25 [3] 1.65 mi (13:35 / mi) +85ft 12:57 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

I've done poorly in the very few Sprints I've done in the past, so I had low expectations for today. But...somehow I ended up getting 3rd place (F45+). Yay!

#1 to #2, I'm not sure how I missed the trail going up the steep hill. Also, there was one control I overshot by about five steps (before I looked back and saw it), but otherwise I didn't feel like I had any serious mistakes (getting caught on the wrong side of a wall, getting stopped by a fence, etc.).

My GPS tracks don't seem particularly accurate (since they show me going through some buildings), but I could have been more straight-line efficient in a few places (e.g. first part of #7 to #8, #13 to #14, and #15 to #16).
