Letchworth A-meet, M35, 4th in category, 15th on RedX. Started the watch halfway to the first control, time is corrected, but I guess I also bounced the button or something because all of the control numbers are high by 1.

Turned the map over and immediately thought that this wasn't going to be very interesting, and it ereally wasn't. Lots of contouring on steep hillsides, with route choice consisting of whether or not to go up or down to run on a parallel trail. SA has me at almost 5 minutes in errors, but that's a small amount on #4 (don't know what that's about), a minute and a half on #11 (maybe contouring would have been faster? but mostly I was hesitant and cautious approaching the control because visibility was low), and a legit 2:44 on #13, where I was low and off to the right (failed to climb early) and hit it just fine after relocating on a big flat area. Just being able to run faster would have helped a fair bit.

I encountered yurets at #3, he was looking at his map and standing still. His response to a cheerful greeting was "Oh. You are everywhere".
