Tomorrow we are in our 3rd Rally Nov. B trial. This COULD be the title! Hopefully I read all the signs right this time. Unless our least favorite the "moving down" appears...we have lucked out 2x and it hasn't been in the course yet!
My philosophy is to walk the course at least 3 times. The first time I want to see what signs are where. The next time I plot my plan of attack. The 3rd time I walk the course as if Murray is there with me complete with hand signals, voice commands, etc. If I have time, I'll continuing walking the course but 3 is my minimum to commit the thing to memory.
Interesting, because the time I got a 100, I did just that, and practiced on the side while we waited.
The last time, I just ran through once and was given the wrong map, and we got an 87 because I messed up a sign...
I am planning to have PLENTY of time for run throughs and contemplation for this trial.
Good Luck! Where are you going to be?
Do well and have fun!

Where exactly are you? If you stop by, look for me with the squirrelly chocolate lab.
My instructor told me to walk the course until kicked out, which is exactly what I did I think there were three people still out there when I left.
Another thing that helped me was watching the class before ours. They only changed a few signs, so I was already familiar with most of the course.
UGH I hate that moving down too! "No moving down" thoughts coming at ya!
That map really doesn't help me that much...I think walking it is a better way to commit it to memory. For me anyway.
Good luck! Hope you have a great day!
