Alpine Skiing 4:00:00 
Pretty easy today. Lift was shut due to high wind. Met up with Nicole, an old player from Houston Christian. Half of UT is here at the moment. Gorronos was packed when I went past. Planned to Nordic, but had a beer with Nicole at the end of the day.
Followed Newcastle v Rochdale on the chair.....a satisfactory result.
Also read the medals thread. Grrrrrr I just don't get people. Jordon makes a good point. Make it meaningful. Get a local artist to make mugs or coasters or something cool. And if you're having a National Champs make sure the Champs get the awards. My kids were pissed after that BAOC debacle. Needless to say. This year it's NAOC and that's it for orienteering (Niels convinced me. I hope he's right and not another shambles.) The event, just for my entry, has cost me more than the World Masters entry and the flights for the whole family from the UK to Latvia. I'm pretty over US orienteering. But I know I shouldn't be. When it's good, it's awesome. Rant over.
