Western Mass Rules Score-O at Mt. Tom. Nice course set by Phil on a perfect day for orienteering (50 and sunny, continuing the streak for November). Went counterclockwise, doing the more technical controls across the road first (got #8 on the way). Hit all the controls pretty well (employed the technique of keeping in contact with the map). Only error was in choosing to do 11-7-6-10 rather than 7-6-11-10 and had to go about 400m further and climb about 50m extra. FR measured 7.55 km.

Red course at HVO local event on Blue Mountain Reservation map. Fun course by Dave Webber with lots of technical stuff. Lost contact on the way to 5 and took a while to relocate (saw the bag for #13 but didn't identify it as one of my later controls - D'oh!). Parallel errors on 9 and 16. Probably could've been about 15 min faster. Upper 40's but quite breezy (OK in the woods). FR measured 9.11 km, which indicates quite a bit of wandering on the controls I botched.
