Chase the Penguin, had a big head start, since I am officially the third slowest member of the club, The course was good, the map was well laid out the first 8 controls were very close together and I made a poor route choice to 1 where I wound up on the road and had to hook around to find it. From there the rest were easy until I went to 10, while it was easy to find I should have pushed a more direct route, it would have been faster. Others hit 10 then crossed a large log to get to 11, I went around, and somehow skipped 12, went to 13 and then finished the race. I had enough of a head start I could have gotten 12 and still one by 6 minutes over 2nd place but a fail is a fail and really I want to become a better navigator over all other things so winning or losing doesn't matter. I found all the controls in good time, didn't make huge mistakes or wander around trying to locate myself on the map. I am pleased with how things went.
