Orienteering race (Orange course) 55:31  *** 4.0 km (13:53 / km) +91m 12:28 / km
spiked:10/11c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2
Went to Grafton to take the club's money box and help out if needed, and run a course. Green and Red were advertised at about 6 km and 7.5 km, so I opted for the shorter Orange (~4 km) which was plenty. One non-spike control was due mostly to flaky map between 3 and 4 which got a lot of people because the map seems a bit compressed in that area (by quite a bit; I'll figure it out later when I put the track on the map in QR...). Did fine on the others.
FR = 4.482 km, 91m climb
Last 3 controls were sprint-like in that they were near the beach and lots of trails.
Gorgeous day! A bit warm for running (upper 70s) and blue skies with lots of sun. People were there canoeing, kayaking, sitting on the beach, etc. (as well as us orienteers). Good club member turnout, though I think we're getting to be a bit like WCOC with mostly older established members participating and not that many young folks and newbies. BUT, the newcomer at our NOD meet was back and she brought a child with her. :-)
There were two or three other families, too. I think we need some post-O bonding activities for the kids to do (besides eat all the cookies at the refreshment table).
