Orienteering race (Long Distance) 3:56:00 [3] 8.5 km (27:46 / km)
spiked:10/14c slept:8.0 shoes: Hi Tec Magma Run

Nav Stock Long Course. Started out fine and was heading to 3 but got completely behuddled when I ended up 100 m north of the control. This area is my own personal Bermuda Triangle, getting lost here in the Snow Raid. After 1.5 hours of random searching saw Hans and others and asked Randy Kemp where I was? Hit control in 5 minutes and was off with 1:20 to complete the course. Hit controls well from there on until coming back to 10 and ended up lost in the triangle again. From previous wandering, finally figured out where I was and hit 10. Meet Mark Adams collecting controls and he mentioned I could finish if I was quick and beat Nina to the controls. Hit 11 and decided to pick up the controls as I must be the last out there. Finished without seeing Nina but meet Sue with the 4 remaining controls. Learned Pierre was still out there. Yeech!! Anyway, Jim, Sue and Jeanette got things straightened out and Nina, Pierre and Mark returned.

Brutal day out in the Copeland forest!!

Orienteering race (Middle Distance) 1:50:00 [4] *** 4.5 km (24:27 / km)
spiked:8/14c slept:7.5 shoes: Hi Tec Magma Run

Nav-Stock Middle distance race. Poor start getting the feel for the map. Hit most of the controls in good order after until #6. Got influence by the crowd and went off bearing. I was correct. #7 was in dense bush and missed it but hit on recovery. Spiked 8 & 9. Overshoot 10 on a bearing but recovered with time loss. Decided to run trail to 11 but got way off line. Got lost and had to run back to find a recognizable spot and soon hit 11. Finished okay but previous losses were big.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 25:10 [3] *** 2.3 km (10:57 / km)
spiked:12/14c shoes: Hi Tec Magma Run

Nav Stock sprint at Bass Lake Park. Started out slow and went on the wrong bearing at 4. Major error resulted in slow time. Just started to get warmed up and the race was over.

Event: Nav-Stock

Orienteering (Flagging) 1:30:00 [2] ** 3.0 km (30:00 / km)
slept:8.0 shoes: Hi Tec Magma Run

Put out flags & lights for the model and Night-O. Had trouble finding the course location as the directions were wrong on the web page.

Orienteering (Score-O) 1:17:00 [3] ** 3.0 km (25:40 / km)
spiked:9/10c shoes: Hi Tec Magma Run

Walk - run the Night-O to get an idea on my speed with a preconception of the course and a good plan of attack. Still missed one control as a ridge approach was used as I know the ravine route was quite difficult. It was difficult to find the reentrant from the ridge though. Should have been able to do the entire course in 1 hour.

Swimming 1:30:00 [3] 3.5 km (25:43 / km)

MTC Swim with Coach Stephanie. Skill poor as I tried to adapt my style to improve breathing and kicking. Did not work other than slowing me down.
