Orienteering Lake Jacomo

I participated in a PTOC event at Lake Jacomo – my first “Score O”.  The difference with this type of event is that the controls have values from 10 to 60 points and the goal is to get as many points as possible within the time limit (3 hours in this case).  There’s no predefined route and everybody starts at the same time.

I crossed the finish line with 5 minutes to spare and got 330 points, putting me in the middle  of the pack.  The winner had 600 points but doing that requires running the whole time and having some real smarts about planning your route.
