Orienteer (Lake Elmo setting/retriev) 2:00:00 [2]
shoes: Inov8 Roclite 268

Andrei planned another fun Score-O. Lake Elmo has numerous updates near the awesome new xc ski building; paths, roads, vegetations and contours have changed a bit. I spent some time wondering whether the Seekers would be able to get their mind around all that, even with "course setters notes" and thought the better of placing control there.... other control was on unfindable boulder (Minnesota has the world's smallest boulder), and other ambiguous spots (to me) so it took some time to set these easy controls correctly.
Was great to have most of the Seekers, the newest of which is Darryn's son who just happens to be the same age as the other kids and already has some orienteering experience. It would be great to have another MNOC family involved!
A few adults also joined in.... Stephen, Robin, Andrea, Chris. Other than Andrea, they're also learning and this is a great way to practice on some easy courses. (If anyone knows of others who want basic training, just let me know and we'll add them to the list).
We did kind of "call the course" early and retrieved our kids and controls; it was just a bit cold and the snow made for wet feet. Some of them were underdressed for the cold wind. Was becoming unfun.
