I've been told that it was an overcast day but not too hot. The rain held off until control pick-up. The turnout was a little above average for an Indiana county meet: 33 starts with 53 participants.
Curt Mertz was meet director. He designed four interesting courses with some challenging route choices on red. I've heard of only one minor problem that affected the first few runners on red - control #2 was missing for the first few minutes of competition. I still don't know how Anneliese managed to get the right punch for that one. I'm told that the feedback was very positive for the advanced courses.
Thanks to Barbara Johnstone and Al Sheaffer for handling set up and for dealing with the emergency situation that kept me away from the meet. Thanks to Sherry Shank, Naomi Jarvis, Barbara Johnstone and Christy Freeman for handling registration. Thanks to Dan Marincel and Al Sheaffer for handling start/finish. Thanks to Joe Logan and Alexis Rzewski for doing instruction. And thanks to Dave Battista, Alexis Rzewski and Al Sheaffer for helping to pick up the controls.
The next event will be our National Orienteering Day meet on September
16 at Deer Lakes Park.
