Green course 4.3 km, 150m climb by Bob Gross. About 78 at start with a breeze so not bad except for the humidity.
Fine through the first 5, then missed 6 and 7 off to one side or the other. Fine to 8, then exited wrong and went a short way in the wrong direction on the road before checking my compass and correcting. Found the right trails to 9, and set my compass to 10 and swore silently as it was a short leg (250m or so) up 4 contours on a boulder-strewn hillside to a big rock (I picked the wrong one) and then back down to the finish. My Halo sweatband-hat was dripping when I finished.
But I had fun (except for #10) and got to chat with the MacMullans. :-)
