Trailing QOC by 19, 1333 to 1352. Can we catch them by the end of the season to (as far as I know) take the Likes Crown?

Ads used to pull ~20-30 likes per week, but over the last few days it's just 1 or 2 per day. I'm not sure if I've saturated, the ad is no longer effective, or if FB tweaks just mean more $$ for the same results.

Although if we get hosed by weather, attendance may not reflect increased strength.

I got caught up on homework - if I can keep this up, maybe I'll try to keep up better on the other social media platforms and check out a couple new ones (instagram, where all kids are, and I've heard meetup can work).

slightly behind schedule, but ads running for:

* Peach Mountain (event based)
* General Club (for increasing were come QOC)

Updated most event pictures from my stash. Club needs a new one, so someone get a fresh backlit flag pic if bored.

Note: if I've spoken to you more than once in real life, you are fair game for an ad (except the reclusive JP). Opt out or be internet famous


Kevin, master of travel, found cheap flights to ATL around Navigator Cup time. Very tempting to book and then target that as a build-towards point re: running shape and waist shape.

7 AM

Orienteering 22:32 intensity: (1:31 @0) + (21:01 @1) 1.2 mi (18:47 / mi) +14m 18:07 / mi
ahr:101 max:123 4c

walk to the start via a few model controls.

If I have not mentioned it previously, I love models.

En route to dinner on Friday, I saw a recessed area, and thought "they should put one down there!" and then it was on the model. Great minds!

Orienteering 14:31 intensity: (1 @0) + (1:25 @1) + (10 @2) + (4:08 @3) + (8:47 @4) 1.4 mi (10:22 / mi) +48m 9:23 / mi
ahr:159 max:173 spiked:19/23c

First half of the sprint. I didn't lock my watch, and if you bend your wrist you can squeeze the button to trigger, " do you want to stop gps?" then the default is "yup" if you should bend your wrist again.

Maybe I'll get a backup tracker to carry...

Orienteering 10:30 intensity: (1:19 @1) + (50 @2) + (4:59 @3) + (3:02 @4) + (20 @5) 0.86 mi (12:13 / mi) +32m 10:57 / mi
ahr:157 max:182

Sprint finish, from the spectator leg (which AP shows as a mistake while I futz with my watch). Here I would make two minor bobbles:

En route to #19, I went down two cliffs and since the clue was "lower cliff", I saw a flag, wtf? checked, wrong code. I should have used the 8 other clues that I was still too high!

Then my big blunder - super short leg, I went towards the building instead of right at the little cliff, +30 sounds like a lot but time flies in a sprint.
