WPOC's first night orienteering meet was a spectacular success. It was a cold but clear night with a much larger than expected turnout, 49 total participants going out on the expanded score course. Bryon Roland was meet director; he designed the courses, put out the controls, cleaned up some of the paths, and took down the controls. Bryon efforts were rewarded with a large group of enthusiastic orienteers who all had a good time and many of them said so. Everyone heeded the safety briefing; so there was no need for any first aid at the finish. The only known mishap was the loss of one compass. Big thanks to Bryon for all of his work. Also, thanks to Laurie Opila for handling registration and part of the finish; and thanks to Jason Livingston for helping with taking down road signs.
The scoring system for the night course
was different from our typical score courses. There were 36 controls.
Those numbered 1-10 were worth 10 points each; all other controls were
worth whatever their control number was (11 through 36). Penalties
were -25 points per minute late.
