Well shoo-dang what the heck was that????? From the moment my hardboiled egg wouldn't peel I knew it was going to be a tough day. :) I gave FCN a try, fighting through humidity and vegetation until I just couldn't find #7 after relocating several times. The heat was doing something funky to my brain, so I skipped to 10-11-12 to avoid worrying my carpool partner. Glad I got out and glad I'm back now.
I would like to add that I saw Svetlana bailing on the green because she wasn't feeling well. When she heard I mispunched, she recommended I just clear and check instead of punching the finish so that the results wouldn't count. Is that kosher?
I just compared last years map with this one. Notice any difference in the shades of green? Printed out much lighter on this years- I was actually confused on the course near 5 when what I was looking at was laurel and what was on the map was pretty light green. And it really would have helped to have the better quality printing when I couldn't find 7. Essentially it reads like basically white woods when in fact there are pretty distinct blobs of thicker veg. (Spoiled aren't we?) Anyone else have any trouble with that?
