Long-Distance Training Event at Devil's Thumb
Saturday, November 10th, 2007 -- Colorado
This year's rogaine-style training event took place under sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s.
The event emphasized practice in route planning, which was accomplished by having two separate maps with control flags that ranged in value from 20 to 80 points. Participants were given maps for the first set of 14 controls, worth 650 points, and had up to three hours to find as many as desired. They could return to the start at any time to get the map for the second set of 12 controls, worth 550 points, but had to turn in their Map 1 control card before heading out and also had to be back within the three-hour time limit.
Not knowing where the controls were on Map 2 added a challenge, as did the incentive of 50 bonus points for each map in which all controls were found. Thirteen participants chose to get all the controls on Map 1 but this wasn't necessarily the best choice since four of the top 11 finishers did not do this and had more time to find controls on Map 2.
A fun physical and mental challenge was had by all, and many celebrated with some cheer at a local brewpub afterwards. Many thanks to Nancy Hobbs for vetting control locations and to Brooke Mann for setting up the registration process and posting results.
