NEOC Menotomy Rocks Sprint. A tiny urban park with one big hill and some surrounding knobs, capped by cliffs, and a few scattered rocks. Some bare rock, some open spots, some stream valleys, a pretty good terrain sampler in an area the size of a suburban shopping mall.
The sprint was 3 loops with a map exchange. There was an option to do it as a memory-O. No, thanks, maybe next time. The control-finding was easy, but I had trouble looking ahead and as a result was often hesitant and reactive. I really ought to be faster at this.
The meet drew a fair number of beginner-intermediates, including lots of parent-child combos. Enjoyed talking to TP, who was probably only there because he agreed to help out.
