Orienteering race 55:54 [4] *** 5.2 km (10:45 / km) +20m 10:33 / km
shoes: Nike Trail (Blue)

Brown course at Joyce Park, Hamilton, Ohio, set by Pat Meehan. A very flat, and open park, but also a very nice use of it for interesting courses. It started out into a wooded, complex floodplain before it got to the fields separated by linear forests. Certainly they weren't as fun as all woods courses, but I thought Pat did a great job throwing in some nice route choice legs.

The low point of the whole event was my fault. After checking repeatedly (like 3 times), I typed 20 Feb instead of 21 Feb into the SportIdent programming software. So none of the boxes in the woods came on on Saturday, because they had already been on for 6 hours on Friday. Luckily, I always use the BSM(?) 7 units for start and finish, so they would work anyway. Unfortunately, the start won't work unless the dibbers are cleared, and the clear was an old unit. I reprogrammed clear and check, and deleted the course information (control codes) from OE. It worked just fine that way. I sent the splits .csv file to Pat (that's right, with 1 split), and he used it in Route Gadget. I was really embarrassed that I misprogrammed everything, and I guess I'm not really sure what happened. I don't remember if I typed 20 Feb. I know I counted three times to get the days number. I either mistyped twice or did the same incorrect count three times. Either way, it's embarrassing.
