    Here is the CNYO Sep 06, M21 Classic Loop 2 map, and here are my routes.

    Maps and routes from the CNYO A meet. I had a decent sprint, making perhaps one 20 second error and having a fine route to control #2 (running the stream bed), a control some people lost time on.

    I had a terrible middle. It started off ok, as I caught PG, who started 2 min ahead of me, at #3. I lost 4 minutes on #4, tho, as I worried too much about race tactics rather than the map. I also got a small stick in my eye that I could not get out, and that didn't help with focus (it was in all day; that evening I managed to pull a small (2 cm) twig out of my eye. Yuck!). I didn't particularly enjoy the terrain on day 1; both the fields and forest were replete with crappy this and crappy that.

    I had a mediocre classic, basically not missing much except a bungled route to #9; probably 2 min total. I was terribly slow, possibly my slowest in a long time. I guess I'm done. I enjoyed the day 2 map and terrain much better, and I thought the course setting was interesting. The map was reputed to be a blank paper map by Dominie -- pretty impressive as I had no issues with the contours or otherwise.
