Boyce Park
Orienteering Meet
24 September 2017

It was an extremely hot day to do orienteering; temperature near 90 degrees.  Nevertheless, we had an impressive turnout:  55 starts with 124 participants.  There were considerably more beginners than expected which meant we had to draw half a dozen additional beginner course maps and do more instruction than usual.  Yaki Barak's courses (as well as the heat and vegetation) presented a formidable challenge to many of the participants.  This was our first event in which we had only one person complete the advanced long course.  Several people had particular difficulty on control 106 (on both advanced courses); however, most people on those courses did find it.  A lot of people brought back burr souvenirs from their course; but the vast majority of participants had a good time.

There was a mixed bag of small problems; all of which were dealt with without too much difficulty.  One control's position did not match the marking on the map; one family of four went on a course without  going through the start process; one person lost his glasses; one person's dog overheated; and a building sprang up where they was only a ruin before.

Thanks to Yaki Barak for designing and putting out the courses.  thanks to Dave Battista for vetting the courses.  Thanks to Barbara Johnstone, Laurie Opila, Naomi Jarvis and James Fenn for handling registration.  Thanks to Kelly Sottile and Jett Downey for helping with start/finish.  Thanks to Sherry Shank and Jen Livingston for providing instruction (Jen did this both shifts).  Thanks to Laurie for drawing additional maps.  And thanks to Alexis Rzewski, Joe Logan, Naomi Jarvis, and James Fenn for helping with control pickup (Alexis and Joe did this after running the Great Race).

Our next event will be at Brady's Run Park on October 8.
