It was the best Pig weather ever, and also the largest Pig crowd ever. Connection?

Not quite the best terrain though. (Although it is somewhat good)
Apr 12, 2010 3:30 AM # 
Yeah, the weather was PERFECT-O!

Sunny and mild. Despite the sun, it still lived up to its pig name, plenty of mud available on those horse trails and a little bit of marsh here and there. Glad I was able to be there Fri and Sat, great event once again!

Thanks for a well organized and a high quality weekend of racing. A great start to the spring racing season and a date to put on your calendar if you couldn't make it.

There's an error in RG for Blue, Day 3 - controls 2 and 3 are reversed.

Excellent event, as always (I can't say I enjoyed the multiflora rose all that much, but it's par for the course). Thank you, OCIN!!!!!

Some photos are posted. More later I hope.

The blue course day 2 route gadget does have a mistake on controls 2 and 3. This was because of a late change to the course suggested by Vetter David Waller. I do feel that the change to the course made it much better. But (technical explanation) the condes file showed "blue" (original course) and blue3 (revised course) and we uploaded the wrong one to condes.

So far our route gadget expert has not found a way to make the correction without "killing" every route already drawn. We're working on it & suggestions / tech expertise is welcome.

Please let us know if you have photos, and please let us know any comments (good, bad or ugly).

We hope evreyone had a GREAT time at this year's Pig. The weather could not have been better!

Oh yeah, I should also say thanks and kudos to the bushwackers Pat and David!!

Thanks to Mike M., Guy O. and David W. and many others for a great event at the Pig. My son and I had a great experience, all three days. Even the shoe sucking mud was cool. A lot of attention to the big and little things by the organizers and the volunteers made it fun.

Great event, as usual! Thanks OCIN!

Are IS Champs (team) results posted somewhere?

Big thanks to OCIN and especially Mike M., Guy O., and David W. for (as always) well organized meet and challenging courses!

thanks for posting that last link, there are thousands of photos of finishers, and after some time-consuming searching, finally found myself in a few. By some rare and fortuitous chance, in one image is my son and I finishing a few meters apart, finishing separate courses (what are the chances of that...). Both of us show nicely within a frame, grandma will be happy...

Thanks for a great weekend! Now that I'm back in still somewhat cold and snowy Sweden I only appreciate the Cincinnati weather more. Regarding the terrain, it was definitely not as thick and steep as I expected from just reading the coursenotes.

I would like to say that we try to under-sell and over-deliver. However, those slopes would have been a lot worse if it were cold and rainy. Every once in a while we get lucky with the weather.

I have to echo cedarcreek's thoughts on this: East Fork was a lot less pleasant a couple weeks before the meet (when some of the course notes were written.) Dry weather for the week before the event, coupled with Pat Meehan's and David William's work out in the woods really improved the venue.
