There were some legs I saw in your QR where I thought, "was his compass in his pocket?", others where I thought, "did he have a plan?", and others where I thought, "looks pretty good."

Ok... Fine, I'll post some analysis.

ok, so I looked at your courses as well after hearing that you were disappointed in your races. I wasn't sure whether to offer unsolicited advice, but now that Eric has I'll add my 2 cents. :) Well, actually Eric stole the words right from my fingers. A couple controls you left the wrong way and on others you had trouble with distance estimation - over running and under running the control. Did you have a plan and an attackpoint? At the same time, I agree with Eric that there were many legs that looked quite steady and I could see your plan. Just make the plan every time!

Thanks for the advice, I'm usually always willing to at least listen to it. =P
Which controls specifically are you thinking that I left the wrong way, besides 5-6 on the middle?

oops :) You're right. I obviously looked too quickly and on a few controls where the lines overlapped I jumped onto the wrong track. Ok, so leaving controls the correct direction is something you did well this weekend!
