Well, yes, in retrospect, it would have been better to cut about 1.5 km off the course. And to those of you who entered the race with legitimate T-shirt aspirations but finished in the 3:30-4:00 range, I offer you my sincerest apologies. But seeing as I have thoughts of possibly hosting another Billygoat or similar caliber event, I thought I would use this forum to invite some more specific feedback with the hopes of providing as optimal an experience as possible in the future. In particular, I would be interested in the opinions of the competitors regarding the number of controls, the possible need for more trail-running options, the possible need for a greater number of less challenging controls, the adequacy of the bag placement, the adequacy of the water stops, any problems with specific control locations (above and beyond the inaccurate mapping of the open area south of control #21, which clearly affected the route choice of some competitors), or any other issues you wish to bring to my attention (excluding the failure to provide multiple punches at controls 1 and 2, which had been my intention, but became impossible when I forgot to pack the extra punches in my backpack and then ran out of time to return to the controls). I hope to learn from your input, and will not be offended by your comments. If you prefer to send me your thoughts directly without posting them in this open forum, I can be reached at JRSchapiro@aol.com. Thanks everyone in advance.
