It was a somewhat overcast and humid day; but the temperatures were in the low to mid 60's. So, it was very reasonable orienteering weather. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to be enough to attract many people to the meet. We had a event with one of the lowest number of starts we have ever had. We did add two new members - welcome to Janice Shields and Linda Grant.
The times on the Yellow course were generally somewhat slow. A few participants on Yellow had trouble finding control # 8 because the trail junction they wanted to use as an attack point was not very distinct. Nevertheless, everyone seemed to enjoy the courses and the park. The Score course had two controls worth 5 points, eight controls worth 10 points, eight controls worth 15 points and two controls worth 20 points for a total of 250 points. It was thought that control #12 might get complained about because it was in a fairly thick area. But, it turned out that all participants on Score went to #12 and no one complained; one even thought it was a good control location.
Al Sheaffer was meet director; he designed some very good courses. Thanks to Barbara Johnstone, Laurie Opila, Mary McElhinny, Danielle Pisarcik, and Dave Torick for running registration. Thanks to Sherry Shank, Curt Mertz, Alexis Rzewski, and Dave Torick for helping with control pick up.
Our next meet will be at Boyce Park on June 14.
