February 2, 2002

We had a fine turnout, and a lot of fun. When you look at the table, you will see that there were some "Penalty" minutes given, which definitely had an impact upon the results. In case you missed it, this was an "As You Go" race, where you learn at the control you are punching which one is your next control. It might not sound hard, but many people had a tough time keeping the correct next control in their minds. Because this was different, Aims didn't DSQ anyone for making an error and missing a control, but there was a large penalty of 20 minutes for each one you missed. Of course if you missed early, you would be thrown way off and could do the rest correctly but still be well short of the correct number, as happened to a few.

Anyway, the skiing was surprisingly good, and the weather was warm enough to actually hang out and chat around the Finish line afterwards, which made for a good time for all.
