QOC Oregon Ridge Red. The first few controls were in the thick woods around the Nature Center. I left a few minutes on the table, not the best routes and a little thrashing inside the circle. Then generally counterclockwise up the hill, and the only problem I had was on #6, I knew I was on the right spur, but I was too far right, ran past it, and had to come back down. Three minutes lost. Those 3 minutes would have moved me up several places.
I had the fastest split on 9-10 overall including Blue, which shared the leg. Can't think why, I just went straight, and knew where I was when I went over the saddle just before the control. I saw the feature early, but I thought I was just as accurate on 7-8-9-11 as I was on 10. A couple years ago I would have been doing this in 8-9 min per k. Good training this season, but I'm just unable to generate the running speed I used to have.
Good course by Ted, who had to deal with the newly logged areas as well as the new rootstocks, and generally sparse features.
