Orienteering race 1:16:51  6.9 km (11:08 / km)
ROC meet at Dryer Road Park - Red Course.
I was finally able to make an ROC meet, and it was already the 3rd Club Series race (last one until fall, as the Sprint Series takes over).
Rough outing. Couldn't read the bike trails (too many), nor the contours (too many trail obscured them for my failing eyes). Biggest errors:
C1 - should have just charged ahead aggressively, but was afraid of going OB and getting lost.
C4 - went farther right than I thought after leaving trail, but tried to correct before I got to the trail, so relocating was futile.
C5 - thought I knew where I left the trail, within 100m of control, but ended up climbing, which shouldn't have happened, then just wandered, unable to relocate off the contours or the trail that I hit.
C7 - trail to left fork to bend went quite well, but couldn't read trails or contours and my bearing let me down and I couldn't really see the green at first.
C8 - this was the worst of all - thought I could see the near "corner" of the second part of the field above me, but was wrong, so spent too much time looking for a sharp curve short of the true destination.
C10 - was headed down a reentrant from just below the field that seemed to be on the line, but no sign of a reentrant on the map, so I kept stopping to find something else. I think I do see a bit of a form line on the map, now, right on the line.
C12 - stupidly took the little trail from the start of the little field, wasting time on curves. Then it was thick "white" to get over to the next trail.
