It was the coldest day ever for a WPOC event. The temperature might have made it up to 20o briefly with winds up to 20 mph and intermittent show showers. Had it not been for the annual meeting and social gathering, we might not have had more than half a dozen people. As it was, we had 27 participants and 21 starts with one person (Christy Freeman) even doing two courses.
Jim Wolfe was meet director. He designed four courses, including a red course that almost required getting your feet wet. Naturally, red runners did not want to do that because of the weather. Otherwise, every seemed to be happy about the courses.
In addition to the courses, WPOC had its annual social gathering and general membership meeting. Alexis has provided some photos of the gathering
