Stackhouse Park
Orienteering Meet
29 August 2010

It was an exceptionally good day for orienteering, although it did get rather warm in the afternoon.  The turnout was a little better than the last couple of Stackhouse Park meets.  We managed to attract a few new faces, including a family from the Miami Valley O Club - the first we have had anyone from that club at our meets.  We also had one new family join as members, Tom and Linda Gray.  Welcome!  Al Sheaffer, meet director, set some rather challenging courses, as evidenced by the finishing times.  There was also a problem on one course - the first control on Yellow was on the wrong feature.  Everyone on the yellow course still found the control; but the misplacement must have contributed to the long times.  There were many positive comments about the day's other courses.

Thanks to Bryon and Mary Roland for vetting Al's courses.  Thanks to Sherry Shank, Loretta Opila, and Mary Roland for handling registration.  Thanks to Barbara Johnstone for helping with start/finish.  Thanks to Joe Logan and Bryon Roland for handling instruction.  And thanks to Jim Trautmann, Alexis Rzewski and Joe Logan for helping to pick up the controls.

The next meet will be our National Orienteering Day event at Camp Twin Echo on September 19..
