AOWN notes: Saw a black squirrel try to cross the road in front of us Friday (but think better of it and go back), then an oriole or tanager at Pine Bush Preserve near the landfill.

Today on the way home from Ratlum we stopped at the Sheffield Covered Bridge and the frogs were having a concert, along with tons of mosquitoes. Hope the birds got their fill for supper! Nearby fields all flooded with recent rain.
1 PM

Orienteering race 23:29 [4] *** 2.14 km (11:00 / km) +38m 10:06 / km
spiked:10/13c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Temp in mid 70s and sunny, but the woods were dry. Wet spots on the trails from recent rain, though!

First sprint, course A, of team sprint relay at Ratlum Mtn, starting in the mass start. Messed up on 3 when I turned the wrong way (90* off!) on the big trails and didn't realize until I'd gone outside the gate and it was woods and not a pond--about a minute and a half or longer error. I'd seen the trail leaving 3 and got to it faster than those who missed it (on the map, it was kind of hidden under the control circle); caught up to Judy again here (who I'd passed on the way to 2, but then oops). Good through the next few; cut through woods a bit too soon to 7 and hit logging remnants; Lyn, who took the trail around, beat Judy and me to the control. 8 was not at the large group of large boulders but a bit downhill and I caught that fact a bit before the others. From 10-11 I stayed at the edge of the field and took the driveway around to the trail below the garden, which turned out to be a good thing as there was some unmapped garden (olive green) if you went around the other way. Glen had already gone off in the leg 2 mass start when I finished.

EDIT: added FR track

Orienteering race 23:24 [4] *** 1.98 km (11:49 / km) +54m 10:24 / km
spiked:10/10c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Second sprint, B. Nominal distance for both was 1.7 km; 60m climb on the first one, 75 on the second. No wrong trails this time, though I was slow going to the cliff (2) and climbing the bare rock to 3. Route choice from 7-8 had a choice of two trails; the left route was a bit faster, but I took the right. Glen again went out on a mass start. Fun courses. Time from the watch is from the time Glen tagged me; results have me in 23:21 (from the time I punched the start box after picking up my second map).

Afterwards was the picnic and short WCOC club meeting to plan the fall schedule. Good food and good conversations with Gail and Judy. Two kinds of chocolate cake! Thanks to Charlie and Rhonda for again hosting this event; I'm finally getting used to this map.
