It was not a nice day; temperature in the upper 40's and overcast; light rain developed around 1 pm and lasted through pickup. For those who went out on courses, the weather should not have been a problem; those who stayed around the registration area shivered. But despite the weather, we had a good turnout: 48 starts from 88 people with a fair number of new orienteers.
Joe Logan was meet director for the first time. Although a few newcomers has a little difficulty with the many trails on the white course, all the comments I heard about other courses were positive. I thought the courses were very interesting. We were hoping to use e-punching on the red course. But we had some difficulty getting that started. In the end, only two competitors used e-punching on red (noted with an asterisk in the results); the others used manual punching. For those who used e-punching, you can look at your split times with this link Split times, WinSplits Online .

Thanks to Dave & Brady Ross, Fred & Kathy Chenot and Laurie Opila for handling registration. Thanks to Barbara Johnstone for handling start/finish. Thanks to Jennifer Livingston and Joe Logan for conducting instruction. Thanks to Alexis Rzewski for putting out the control boxes for the e-punching. And thanks to Alexis Rzewski, Phil Martineau, and Kevin Peterson for picking up the controls.
The next meet will be at Mingo Creek Park on October 28..
