Use caution:-) might get scalped in return re a decoy by some red-skin (not me, of course:)).. I, tiredish/hot, thought maybe a mistake at #6: "boulder vs man-made object" decision 'crux' - 2 controls, very different features, 15m apart, light green vegetation... In corner of my mind is (too often, as in pessimist) - perhaps put in wrong place - even when code does not match. Tempted to punch the wrong one thinking it was the only one (and vis was "tight") ...phew...

Nice job anticipating the number of maps needed - was that just a well-informed guess, or were you using some insider knowledge I don't know about? Congratulations on putting together a fantastic meet, and a great start to the year!

@bl- yes, live by the sword, die by the sword is apropos! I decided to push the envelope on control density as "allowed" by sprint format- including invoking OOB rules- otherwise would not have been fair! Interesting but not fair :-) (apologies to Ross are hereby extended).

@Ian - thanks also - prior knowledge from last few years traded between tp and myself. However I did get Orange wrong, anticipating more on white- so we ran out on orange- actually this surprised me because many advanced Oers did orange rather than the sprints- maybe the latter are intimidating? Oh well!

BTW, maps were on hefty paper which was very helpful - no need for map cases if dry weather - wet, too perhaps...? Where were they printed?

AlphaGraphics in Concord- very helpful (marked contrast to Kinko's)- straight off exported pdf file. Did a test print to select paper (about 80c a copy).
You've given me an idea to test water resistance.
