Batsto cancelled, for the third time... (WTF?) I went to a club with its act together.
Rocky Ridge is a place I love.
A good course. I was very pleased with myself for most of it. Felt like I was cranking and controls came to me like they were on strings. But, the big uphill leg cost me maybe 2 minutes as I got pulled off on an ummapped trail.
But, later, worse. I probably was getting a bit tired. Couldn't find 12, and decided it wasn't there. So, on to 13. (This was a freak occurrence. Nancy coming in from the left suggested to me that the control couldn't possibly there, but it was.) Anyway, found 13 (too fast, seemingly) and on the way to 14, went deliberately high, and of course I found 12, which I punched.
Decent the rest of the course. But, I DQed myself (had to, with pin punching) due to the out of order issue.
I love Rocky Ridge, but I must say the map is getting a bit tired. It needs to be upgraded to contemporary standards. There were some minor issues in the control circle at 12 but more significant ones at 7.
