WPOC's third night orienteering meet ran into a few problems with the weather. It was a very comfortable, clear night with an excellent turnout, 48 total participants going out on the expanded score course. Bryon Roland was meet director; he designed the course, put out the controls, and took down the controls. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and no one was late getting back. There was one small problem with control 36 which was misplaced by about 60 meters on a very similar feature; but two orienteers found it anyway and one found the ribbon where it should have been. No one said anything about the large plastic spider at control 32; maybe they didn't notice. Big thanks to Bryon for a huge amount of work. Also, thanks to Mary McElhinny and Laurie Opila for handling registration and to Caleb for handling whistle sales - Bryon found a place where we could get whistles with the club logo on them and we are now selling them; Caleb sold 33 at this meet.
The scoring system for the night course
was different from our typical score courses. There were 35 controls.
Those numbered 1-9 were worth 5 points each; those numbered 10-19 were
worth 10 points; those numbered 20-29 were worth 20 points and those numbered
30-35 were worth 30 points. So, there were 525 possible points.
There was a 20 point per whole minute penalty. Each punch card
is listed separately in the standings below, even if some people went on
the course in a group.
