Planned on doing the BFLO course at Sprague Brook Park, then meeting Walt and Patty at Sardinia to vet some of next year's Map Hike, but they finished their running of the Oak Tree half marathon earlier than expected, so I headed to Sardinia first. I happened to see their car in Perry and followed them to Castile before Walt noticed it was me.
Last time at Sardinia, I went south, so I volunteered to do the northern loop, which went pretty cleanly, so I was done in 54 minutes and added on two southern controls. I lost 3 minutes on the very first control because the clue said intermittent stream end, so when I saw the stream, I just went uphill without consulting the map - turns out it was actually an usual downhill stream end. Also lost a little time on the 4th control as I did not realize I had to go uphill so much to the flag, so I went a bit past before climbing.

BFLO Sol-O meet at Sprague Brook Park. Drove over from Sardinia and ran the course. My printer wasn't printing magenta, so the colors were a bit off and the course didn't print, so I had to draw the control circles, old school.
Fairly clean run, even if just a little slow after some climbing at Sardinia first. Only mistake of much consequence was losing > 1 minute going to C5 when I unexpectedly crossed a trail and got confused, veering off less 30m from the control, as it turned out.

Nice ride into the city. Saw a gathering at MLK park, so took a lap around the outside to see the terrorists tailgating. Hit 37mph coming down Empire Blvd from Winton (then hit 7.2 mph coming up the other side).

RH3 in the city. The terrorists scratched up my car a bit while I was parked on Exchange St, south of 490, after we were told to remove our cars from the Exchange Pub lot, even though we were stopping in there after the run. Got out of Dodge before the real action started.
Not a good round. Driver was fine, except for on #14, but I had 2 3-putt bogeys and missed two other easy putts, so shot 44 and we lost 22-18. But next week is position week and we should still be on top, so that's the week that matters. Unfortunately, my partner will be out, so I need to choose a sub wisely!

Billygoat - 2020 DIY edition. We were able to go visit Nate for the weekend before Luke's goes back to school (well, from his bedroom at home, since RPI is not allowing Sophomores on campus this semester - they will replace the Juniors in the Spring), and the fine folks at WCOC had the (Sol-O) Billygoat ready to go for this weekend. We did our own mass start but I could not keep up with Nate. Luke and Christine also did the first loop behind me, then Luke continued until he fell and injured himself. Meanwhile, I skipped C5 and was ahead of Nate until I overshot C11 and he caught me. He went left to C12 so he could stop for water, while I went right. I did not execute well and he got ahead of me and it was over. I thought I had some energy left, but my splits to C15 and C16 show otherwise.
Other misses: lost over a minute on C8 stopping short and left, and probably lost a minute and a half not getting high enough for C16.
