We had a brief shower of rain go through early on
Sunday and a small hiccup with setting up (resolved with the help of
awesome volunteers) but we still got our rescheduled Sprint #1 underway
at the earlier start time.
It was another great event with some hot competition within the age
groups as well as overall. The sprint series placings are wide open,
so #3 is going to be interesting.
