Saturday - Orienteering Meet

Saturday was National Orienteering Day, so we headed to the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area at Jones Bridge. We were excited as there was a score-O, which basically means you can obtain as many points as possible within the time limit, and you can get them in any order. Unfortunately Chris and I missed one vital piece of information...the time limit. On the website, it said 90 minutes, but there was a sign at the meet (that we saw AFTER the fact) that said 60 minutes. Chris had a pretty good run and I had a so-so run, both getting all the points, but after they apply the penalties for going overtime..we'll both probably be in the negative numbers...sigh.

Oh well, it was good practice anyways, but I would have been more than happy to only run around for an hour versus an hour and a half due to racing at the singlespeed championships the next day.
