  1. Hi Vladimir,
    First, I’d like to thank you and Mihai for organizing such a fun event on Sunday. This was only my third competition and even though I misunderstood the instructions, I had a wonderful time (and learned a lot)!!!
    I did the brown course this time, and I misinterpreted the instructions as having to do all controls from 1-17, then go straight to finish. Instead, I later discovered after I finished the course, that I was supposed to do controls 1-8, jump to 17 and then go straight to finish. Consequently, I did 8 extra controls I wasn’t supposed to, and I’ll admit to you that it about did me in!! I barely finished under the 3 hour limit! Wasn’t sure how the times would be reported… I guess this will disqualify me? Well, hopefully, I’ve learned an important lesson: I should ask questions next time something seems strange to me!!!
    On an aside, I keep studying the map trying to learn more about this sport and what I can’t figure out is how the brown course could be 4.6 km, just 1 km short of the green course, when it only has 9 controls and the green course has 20 controls (I measured the brown course using the map scale and come up with ~2.8 km not 4.6 km) Am I using the scale incorrectly or doing something wrong?
    Anyways, THANKS AGAIN! Hopefully, I’ll make it to your next event!
