Orienteering Meet race 1:33:34 [5] *** 8.0 km (11:42 / km)

This was the most fun and the best orienteering I have done or experienced in a long long time!!!! Did someone mention that Moreau Lake was the best map in the US......Did someone forget about Camp Ripley?????
This was an exercise in concentration and map reading...AWESOME..even though it was raining and my glasses got foggy once, it was a blast. I was thinking that near the end I wanted to maintain on the north side so I kept my concentration good down to the very end. My goal was 90 minutes for the course and was happy with my 93 minutes.

Orienteering Meet race 19:23 [5] *** 1.97 km (9:50 / km)

Camp Ripley weekend B meet.

If you missed this event you missed a great one!

First of 3 event today a Sprint. Very nice map and course. I just missed a bit on one control and had to climb a big hill to get there. One step next to a marsh and it sucked you down.
2 PM

Orienteering Meet race 52:21 [5] *** 3.79 km (13:49 / km)

Mid Distance and really cool terrain. I was not too clean on some but after the first control was a lot better till the 2nd to the last where I drifted off to the east.
7 PM

Orienteering Meet race 40:34 [5] *** 3.0 km (13:31 / km)

Night O and a mass score O. I was good till I went off by myself and mis read my timing. I started my watch 2 minutes early so i would not be late. So after 2 controls I thought that I was going slow. I changed plans and missed the 3rd control. I was off by 100 meters OUCH!
I decided to get to the south part of the map for denser controls and better readability. But I was short of controls and 5 minutes to spare. Oh well.
