    Thanks to Tom Svobodny, Gabe Svobodny and Chuck White for helping pick up controls and signs.
    Temperatures climbed to the mid 70's under mostly sunny skies.  This is one of OCIN's flatter maps, with a 3 meter contour interval, and only 6 contours of total relief (from lowest point to highest point).  There is a moderately dense network of trails and a couple prairie areas.  A long, narrow lake bisects the map, and forced some interesting route choices on orange and green.  Most orienteers managed to find thickets of multiflora rose and patches of poison ivy.
    Bob Frey got the fright of his life while running across a rough open field, when a large wild turkey suddenly took off from right at his feet.  Several deer were seen.
    If you ran green and thought it seemed a bit longer than the announced 4.5 km, you were right.  It turned out to be 5.3 km.
