#3 OK orienteering into the control circle, but then went for the wrong hill/cliffs to the right when the control was a little left.
#5 strange route choice (??) on the wrong side of the swamp.
#6 a more southerly route would have avoided the wet and slow places.
This is the last Monday event for this year. A few more weeks of the season remain, but the events move to Sunday in search of more daylight.
They are building a new car-tunnel at paloheinä, so a few places were turned upside down (not shown on the map..).
Orienteering close to the Ämmässuo/Käringmossen trash dump.
#1 a bit tentative, maybe should have used the path SW of the control
#3 good orienteering into the control-circle, but then failed to find the flag for about 3 minutes...
#4 the plan was to use the cliff (blue line on the map) to find the control, but I failed to execute and circled around the hill on the wrong side. Another +3 min mistake.
#5 no mistakes but slow
#9 initially I had the right direction out from #8, but then somehow deviated down the wrong side of the hill (looking at the compass might have helped). Maybe 2-3 min lost here.
#10-#11-#12-F mostly OK
I didn't make it into the official results but my placing is roughly 20./62.
The last firmaliiga event for this season was held yesterday at Luukki.
#1-#4 mostly OK
#5 very slow route choice through bad terrain with fallen and cut-down trees
#6 a small 1min loop to find the control
#7-#8 OK (a small loop on #7 close to the control)
#9 maybe +1min here again as I followed others to the left when the control was right.
#10 again followed others to the wrong control before finding my own, +2min maybe
#11-F slowest ever finish as I tried to figure out where it was...
Firmaliiga result 49./61
- #2 could have taken a more direct route close to the control
- #6 ran very very close to the control - then decided to search right for 200m when the control would have been to the left about 5m.
- #7 should have clearly chosen either the path or the road - now an in-between choice that wasn't so great.
