Pine Ridge Park
12 November 2017
It was a cool (temperature in the low 40s) partly sunny day; excellent
for orienteering. Nevertheless, we had a relatively small
turnout: 30 starts and 39 participants. We were especially
low in the beginner course as we usually get a fair number of scouts
coming out, possibly because Pine Ridge is our last event of the year.
However, that didn't happen this time.
Everyone seemed to like Ryan Knecht's courses as there were many
positive comments about the Novice and Score courses in particular.
Mark Lattanzi really tore up the Score course as he cleared it
with more than 25 minutes to spare. This was almost 30 minutes
faster than the second place competitor who also cleared the course.
From the looks of the splits for the Score course, there were
many different routes tried - far greater variety that is usually seen on a score course.
Thanks to Mark
Puda, Barbara Johnstone, Al Sheaffer and Eric Steinbring for handling
registration. Thanks to Ryan Knecht for helping with
start/finish. Thanks to Joe Logan for doing instruction.
And thanks to Alexis Rzewski, John Huffman, Naomi Jarvis, James
Fenn, Andy Karnavas, and Ryan Knecht for doing control pickup.

Pine Ridge is
our last event of the year. The next event will be a ski-O on Jan
7 at Laurel Ridge, provided the weather cooperates.
