Feb 15 @ Venice - It was cool!

Man, was I ever overwhelmed with Steve being absent... and Ken being absent... and at least 3 key people calling me while I was on my way to Venice to tell me that they were running late! But, we got through it. And it was a really fun course!

Unfortunately, it was a course that didn't allow a lot of run overlap. Couple that with the first run group running slow for various reasons, and we ended up capping the runs at four. I really wanted to do more, but it just wasn't happening today.

Thanks to all who lent hands throughout the day to get things done and keep things moving!

Results are up!

I didn't like this course, it required skills. I didn't bring any.

Enjoyed the course and thought it was great use of the available space at venice. I do have a question, what was the best way to approach that turn around? I noticed Philip went further out than I did. Between Venice's Taveres like grip in that section to the end of the turn around's cone being further up vs the entry cone I wasn't sure what the best way to get around it.

Posted it on FB, but here was my 43.774, good for first for yesterday's smaller m3 class
