orienteering race 22:00 [3] 2.44 km (9:01 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280

No significant problems, could have run faster in places.
AP splits show zero lost time. They did come up quick at this 4000 scale map.

orienteering race 1:51:03 [3] 9.02 km (12:19 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280

Long at Eqypt Mills -- mostly good navigation. On the way to #8 I contoured around the hill to the right keeping the lake in sight, then went too far and also too high on the next ridge, I realized this and corrected without losing too much, maybe 3 minutes and extra climb that wasn't needed.

Then to #9, I contoured and came to a control, but not the right number or the right feature. Should have been dropping a couple of contours (maybe 2 minutes extra)

I'll have to look at my track on the long leg (4 to 5) to see what I did vs. what I thought at the time. I decided to basically go straight, but apparently did not.

orienteering race 1:05:45 [3] 4.65 km (14:08 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280

Thought the rain was going to let up by my start, but it actually turned to pouring rain for a while and then continued for about 1/3 of the course.
I lost a couple of minutes at #8, a reentrant which was really a linear feature. I should have aimed off one way or the other, I was sure I had gone far enough, but had to go beyond and then return to find the spot. another couple of minutes lost near the end with many controls and very close proximity to each other.

orienteering 54:00 [2] 4.35 km (12:25 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280

Model event at Front Pond, tried some straight line thru the green to see how thick it is. Spotted some private property signs near the NW part of this little area, but nothing shown as out of bounds. Went around the area by a farm house and out to the main road.
