Orienteering 50:00 [2]

Hanging the white and most of the yellow courses at Bowie and pickup of 9 controls after the meet. Courses were mostly well-received (Eddie referring to the Blue course as a quagmire being a notable exception) though it appears the number of controls I threw at the brown and green courses may have been something of a shock.

From force of habit I neglected to mention in first logging this that this was Dan's first orienteering meet (background: take about two thirds of the films and dance performances mentioned in my log since August and add that I was going to them with a petite woman named Dan (not short for "Danielle" but for "Dan Tam" - Vietnamese for "Good Heart" apparently)). She has quite lovely running form with everything moving backwards and forwards rather than side to side (not that I'm not biased) but has greater directional challenges when it comes to whole body movements, i.e. she did the white course with a couple of moderately epic takings of the wrong path out of a junction and then about half of the yellow course with fewer of those but other difficulties before she abandoned it to make the deadline for reporting to the finish. Not a bad first outing.
