2:20pm. On the lake at Sargent Center. Ribs had been hurting when sitting up/down or rolling last night but did not bother me now. Will not be here for the canoe-O tomorrow but did see two of the control ribbons already hung.

UNO: USOF Night-O champs Sargent Center NH. 10:16pm This was the reason I came to the NH. Rained in evening so woods were wet and humid. Went to warm up and ribs hurt with every step, plus my light did not turn on. Should have heeded the omens and got in my car and driven home. Instead I stayed and ran the night-O anyway.
Checked the battery connection and my light worked again. Ribs hurt when running hard but in the dark I was not moving that fast anyway. Messed up 2,3,4 but then settled down and was doing ok. Something still wrong with the battery connection as my light would occasionly go off when jumping down or landing hard. Anti-fog on my glasses was overwhelmed by control 6 and I had to wipe them every few minutes on the dry paper towels I was carrying in a plastic bag with my battery. Totally messed up 8 and 9 with no explaination why. Knew I was right by the controls but could not find them even with several attacks. Eventually did but no confidence or speed over the rest of the course. Battery connection got steadily worse, with constant flickering and a dimmed light unless I squeezed the battery holder. Thus ends my streak of night-O victories (actually it ended last year when I was beaten in a local event in the rain). Not only did I fail to place, but I was not that far out of last.
After the race came one more test. I still had to drive home. On the road around 2am.
