It was a very wet day, having rained a couple of inches the day before and rained during the morning before the start window opened. Some paths were covered with water; streams that are usually only a few inches deep were at 2 feet or more. Everywhere it was muddy and slippery. Nevertheless, we did have a few intrepid participants, including several boy scouts working on their first class rating.
Ray Wygonik designed some interesting and challenging courses and all the controls were where they were supposed to be. We tried to attract a few geocachers to the event by offering one course using GPS coordinates. But the only ones who showed up were the Grays who are club members. There were a lot of very positive comments about the courses. Everyone had a good. albeit wet, time.
We had two families join the club. Welcome to the Nick McCullar and Barbara Jones families.
Thanks to Loretta Opila and Alexis Rzewski for handling registration. Thanks to Joe Logan for helping with start/finish. Thanks to Bryon Roland, Dave Battista, the Weltner family and Rich for helping with control pickup. And thanks to Ray Wygonik, who helped with registration and start/finish and control pickup because we were short of volunteers.
The next meet will be our 2-day A-meet at Deer Lakes Park and Keystone
State Park on June 25-26.
