Orienteering race (NOL Sprint Relay) 13:00  3.0 km (4:20 / km)
At Lithgow TAFE. Came 1st with a Cockies team of Lizzie, me, Lachy and Jo. Lizzie did a professional job, dealing well with a few curveballs thrown her way by the organisers, coming back just ahead of Victoria. I set off hard with Max in tow on the same 'gaffle' (actually ungaffled courses, just a choice of which loop you did first). Breaking away wasn't so easy when waking up controls, but I managed to get a small gap going into the buildings after the first loop. Then got slightly scuppered (~20s time loss) by a 2m high unmapped uncrossable fence blocking my chosen routechoice. Didn't get scuppered by the wrong control being out because I didn't check my codes. Rest of the course was fine and came back with a reasonably comfortable cushion over the field. Lachy and Jo, as expected, did the business and brought us home for the win. Happy with how I felt today and thought the course made good use of the terrain. On the minus side... well, mistakes happen, hopefully they get learnt from. The mistakes today would have grossly impacted any race of any standard, so I hope it's not put down to struggling to meet perceived high expectations from hosting a NOL race.
