Temperatures were in the 70's but it was quite muggy - still it was much better than being in the middle of a hurricane. We had a pretty good turnout, thanks in part to the number of scouts that showed up. I had been hoping for more participants on Orange and Red; but I guess we can't have everything.
Curt Mertz directed his first event; it seemed to go quite well. The only negative comments I hears were about the steepness of the terrain; there was nothing that Curt could have done about that. There was a minor glitch with the white course that was quickly cleared up and no one's time seemed to be affected by it. Probably the most notable thing that happened at this event was in the results for the Red course. I cannot recall any previous local orienteering meet in which there was a tie for first place between two independent runners on the Red course. But it happened (I checked the results several times); congratulations to Andy and Alexis.
Thanks to Mary Roland, Loretta Opila, and Barbara Johnstone for handling registration. Thanks to Joe Logan and Nick McCullar for handling start/finish. Thanks to Bryon Roland for conducting instruction. And thanks to Dave Battista, Nick McCullar and Andy Strat for helping to pick up the controls.
The next event will be on September 18 at Boyce Park. This will
be our National Orienteering Day event with free participation for newbies.
