DVOA Schuylkill Environmental Center Red.
Quite a good run. A little awkward in the very beginning and maybe a 30-40 second mistake in the middle, but otherwise pretty good. Wyatt beat me by 2 minutes. I think I could have done 38 but only with a great run. He did very nicely.
This was orienteering as it is meant to be. The enjoyment factor was right up there with the HVO Dueal Meet from the fall. Absolutely perfect implementation. Control placements, rhythm, terrain usage, etc., all right out of the book. It appears that, subject to the willingness of The Elect, there still may be events worth going to in DVOA.

DVOA Schuylkill Environmental Center Sprint.
Not a good run at all. I was a little cold--didn't do a warmup at all--and while I got through the first couple, I came apart in the middle, and then barely hung on towards the end, still doing some stupid stuff.
But, a nice sprint. Some interesting stuff in it.
