orienteering 43:49 [3] 2.9 km (15:07 / km) +75m 13:23 / km
weight:167lbs shoes: Falcon VJ - Footlok

Nice course, nice day - a little drizzle - and an OK performance. Not, however, a confidence-builder, since I had difficulty with route choice on the one long control, #7. I ignored trails (I know, I know) and went through some awful downfall areas (clearly marked on the map), added some unnecessary climb and lost about three minutes. This would have been enough to win the day, but nemesis Tony Federer beat me by under three minutes. Nevertheless, a second place in the NA's was not bad. However, the trouble with the long leg did NOT set me up for the next day.

orienteering 30:00 [3] 2.0 km (15:00 / km)
weight:167lbs shoes: Falcon VJ - Footlok

Sprint relay. I'm just not very good at sprints. Had plenty of energy, weather was coolish drizzle and no excuses. Just don't seem to be able to think fast enough. Several errors including a 180. Lost 5 - 6 minutes.

orienteering 49:28 [3] 3.3 mi (14:59 / mi) +105m 13:38 / mi
weight:167lbs shoes: Falcon VJ - Footlok

Day Two. Extremely humid. Again great map and courses. Worked a little harder, tried to give the day away in my class, but no takers. So I managed a win and a two-day total time win. Happy with effort - but acknowledge that it will not be good enough for the North Americans next weekend. Good time. Of to Fiona, Justin and Avery's for three nights. Probably lost 3 - 4 minutes.

orienteering 54:34 [3] 3.5 km (15:35 / km) +130m 13:09 / km
weight:167lbs shoes: Salomon Speedcross - green

Beautiful day, map and courses. Much more readable map and terrain than model event. Was very cautious - especially at start. Managed to win the day in my geezer class, tho. Happy over result. Probably lost 3 - 4 minutes and could have worked harder.
