After David W. handed me a wonderful BK cheeseburger, I was set to go for round 2. The second event of the day had the same finish location, so that made things easier.
Went with the same as the morning – radio control at the Start, two at the Go control (200), and the USB wired controls for the Finish. Used no additional repeaters in the afternoon.

To be low maintenance for the Start crew, for this course I started on my assigned start time, so I was 1/4 for the weekend. I did wear my bib number 2/4 times, which is a new record.
Anyway, I got a bit too cocky from 5-6, and eventually found 7, but then inexplicably I headed back to 5 and punched there again and was on my way to 7 again when I realized something wasn’t right. Back to 5 for another check, and a foul word or two, and then to 6 and the rest of the course. What made this such a painful error was that the entire area was just a slick muddy mess. Hey, but then it wouldn’t be the Pig, would it?
Another error when I decided to go through the tall stuff from 9-10 and then missed seeing the control. After that, there was a bit of head to head with a FU cadet who out kicked me by 10 seconds in the finish chute. Is it just me, or do we have the same expressions on our faces?

Another enjoyable course. I could get used to doing Yellow on a regular basis.
Distance was 2.4 km with 60 m of climb, finish time = 36:19. Placed 9/16 on the course, my worst showing of the weekend.
