It was almost an ideal day for orienteering - temperature about 50, overcast with very little wind. Naturally, visibility was excellent because Spring was barely begun. The weather may have had something to do with it; but the turnout was very good and everyone seemed to have a good time. We even added four new memberships - welcome to Michael & Carol Adametz, Ray Wygonik, Frank Ferraro, and Curt Mertz.
As usual, the Rzewskis set the pace for the courses; Luca burned up the White course while Alexis finished the Score way ahead of the time limit. A couple participants on the Yellow course thought one of the controls was misplaced; but the check during control pickup proved it to be in the correct location. Many participants on the Yellow course encountered candy scattered about on the course - due to some other group using part of White's Woods during the day.
Bryon Roland was meet director; he designed some very good courses and challenged most of those on the Score course. Thanks to Joe Logan, Laurie Opila, Barbara Johnstone, Jennifer Livingstone, and Mary McElhinney for running registration. Thanks to Mike Ward and Bryon Roland for handling start/finish. Thanks to Alexis & Luca Rzewski and Dave Battista for helping with control pick up.
Our next meet will be at Hartwood Acres on April 18.
